Selecting Your Smile Sculpting Tools

Once we have a clear understanding of your orthodontic needs and personal preferences, the next step at Moffett & Walley Orthodontics is to select the ideal appliances to transform your smile. Dr. Moffett uses the insights gained from your assessment to match you with the best tools for your treatment.

Appliance Options

  • Metal Braces: Known for their durability and effectiveness in treating a wide range of alignment issues.
  • Clear Braces: Offer a less visible alternative with aesthetic benefits, suitable for patients concerned with visual appearance.

Selection Criteria

  • Treatment Needs: Appliance choice depends on the complexity of your alignment needs.
  • Lifestyle Considerations: Factors such as your daily activities and appearance preferences influence the selection.
  • Patient Comfort: Ensuring the appliances are comfortable for long-term wear is a priority.

By carefully selecting the appropriate orthodontic appliances, Dr. Moffett ensures that your treatment is not only effective but also aligns with your lifestyle and comfort. Next, we will dive into how we customize the treatment duration and adjustment schedules to align precisely with your progress and needs.

Timing Your Transformation

Customizing the timeline and frequency of adjustments is crucial in ensuring your orthodontic treatment at Moffett & Walley Orthodontics is effective and comfortable. Dr. Moffett and our team fine-tune every aspect of your treatment plan to harmonize with your daily life and orthodontic goals:

  • Determining Treatment Duration:
    • Complexity of Issues: The more complex your alignment needs, the longer the potential treatment duration.
    • Type of Appliances Used: Some appliances, like clear aligners, may require a different timeline compared to traditional braces.
  • Scheduling Regular Adjustments:
    • Progress Checks: Regular appointments allow us to monitor your progress and make necessary adjustments to keep your treatment on track.
