Is Invisalign right for me? 

Invisalign® is a non-invasive, aesthetic solution for straightening teeth. If your teeth are crowded, gapped, or misaligned, Invisalign® can offer a healthier, more attractive smile. At Atlantic Orthodontics, we can help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile with Invisalign®. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Brianne DeSantis, contact our office.

How long does orthodontic treatment take? 

The length of your orthodontic treatment will depend on your individual treatment plan and goals. During your consultation with Dr. Brianne DeSantis, we will discuss your options. Many factors affect the duration of orthodontic treatment, including your treatment goals, the condition of your teeth, type of treatment, and how well you comply with the treatment plan. Contact Atlantic Orthodontics of Ormond Beach for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Which orthodontic treatment works the fastest?

Many clear aligners can yield rapid results for patients with minimal malocclusions, but traditional braces are also an effective option. Teeth must be moved slowly to prevent damage to the tooth roots. Strict compliance with your prescribed treatment plan will keep the timing on track. Contact Atlantic Orthodontics of Ormond Beach for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Which orthodontic treatment is best?

Orthodontic treatment is recommended strictly on a per-case basis. Visit us in Ormond Beach to learn more about options that best align with your goals. 

Will I need to have orthodontic treatment more than once? 

Some patients may experience a reversion of their treatment if retainers are not utilized properly. Contact Atlantic Orthodontics of Ormond Beach for more information or to schedule an appointment.

At what age should I visit an orthodontist?

Orthodontic treatment can begin at any age, but the typical age for an initial consultation is 7, with treatment beginning between ages 8 and 14. Certain conditions are treated more easily while the jaw is still growing. Contact Atlantic Orthodontics of Ormond Beach for more information or to schedule an appointment.
