My orthodontic experience with braces

Posted On: October 20, 2016

I did not have braces as a child, but waited until I was an adult to have orthodontic care. My teeth didn’t seem “horrible”, but I definitely had some areas that bothered me and that I wanted to improve. I chose clear brackets on my top arch, which were less visible than the traditional metal braces. I was in treatment for about 18 months, in which time I was very impressed by my orthodontists’ attention to detail, the importance that was placed on running their office on time and the quality of care that was provided. When I got my braces off, I was so excited about how great my teeth looked. I felt so confident, I couldn’t stop smiling! If you find yourself in a similar situation, looking in the mirror and feeling a little disappointed with your teeth, I would encourage you to find an orthodontist in your area and go in for a consultation. You won’t regret it! -Beth
