While orthodontic braces are often prescribed to prevent or correct serious malocclusion issues in growing children, they can also benefit older teens and adults by correcting crowded, rotated, or unevenly spaced teeth. Braces can even be used in conjunction with restorative treatments, like dental crowns, bridges, and dental implants, to create comprehensive treatment plans with significantly improved long-term results.

In cases of severe tooth misalignment in children and adults, we may recommend seeing an orthodontic specialist (known as an orthodontist) to ensure your family’s optimal oral health. In most cases, orthodontic treatment can take between 12 and 24 months, though more severe cases may take up to three years or more. To help make treatment more affordable at Dimples Family Dentistry, we offer in-house payment plans with low monthly payments. To learn more, schedule a consultation by calling Dimples Family Dentistry in Norwalk, IA, today at 515-256-1176.
