At Freedman & Haas Orthodontics our Greenacres orthodontic office helps patients correct any misalignments in the teeth. Braces are used to straighten teeth and make them easier to clean. Our orthodontist can tell you more about the different types of braces, and the benefits of each kind.
Our orthodontics can be clear, plastic, metal or ceramic. Some are removable and some are traditional braces that are bonded to teeth. They move teeth into the desired position over time, slowly and painlessly. It’s important to have straight teeth as they are easier to clean. More food gets trapped in between crooked teeth and they are harder to floss and brush. Usually most braces take at least a year to straighten teeth, depending on the level of misalignment. We also offer traditional braces braces, which are the kinds of braces that use metal hardware, as well as Invisalign Braces which are invisible braces that use a set of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Invisalign is a special kind of aligner in which we create a series of aligners and give you a new set every two weeks as the aligners gently and painlessly align teeth into position over time.
Treatment time for braces done at our Greenacres orthodontic office depends on the severity of the misalignment. Treatment can take anywhere from a year to two years. Interceptive orthodontics, which are used on young adults before braces, can take anywhere from 9-15 months. We have two offices to service our patients, one in West Palm Beach and one in Wellington, Florida. We provide a family friendly environment and are actively involved in many different community outreach programs. We’re open Monday through Friday and patients can visit our website to connect to our Facebook or Google Plus accounts. Our patient portal has tons of information for each of our patients to read through and educate themselves on.
