It's Not Just About Straightening Teeth
It's about achieving the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve for confidence that lasts a lifetime. Orthodontic treatment not only improves your smile, it can improve your health, too.
Dr. Thurman uses digital imaging and a detailed examination to create a customized treatment plan that results in a beautiful smile, a well-functioning bite, and healthy jaw joints. Teeth that are positioned better are easier to keep clean. An accurate bite improves jaw function, increases chewing efficiency, provides long-term health to the jaw muscles and joints, and sustains the health of the gum tissue.
Dr. Thurman and his team pride themselves on offering excellent customer service and an exceptional orthodontic experience to all patients. It's their goal to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a professional, caring and fun environment where patients are the top priority and where getting braces is a pleasant experience.
Orthodontic Treatment Has Never Been Better
No matter how old you are, there's never been a better time to consider orthodontic treatment. Technology has significantly advanced the field of orthodontics, and there are so many options available to you. We offer traditional silver braces, or a more aesthetic, clear option. You can even get removable options. Patients may often choose colors for their braces.
Teeth move to their determined positions under gentle, constant force with careful control. The latest materials are so advanced, and designed to move teeth more efficiently with greater comfort.
Your Treatment Time
Dr. Thurman will discuss your treatment time with you, as orthodontic treatment times can vary. Several factors may affect your custom treatment time, but overall the average treatment time is about 18-24 months.
The best way to stay on track to a successful treatment plan is to stay involved and be an active participant in your plan. This means scheduling and attending all your appointments on time to help you meet your goals.
Before your journey begins, schedule your first complimentary visit with Dr. Thurman. He'll provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the concern, a written summary of the findings, and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals, and estimated fees.
Dr. Thurman was very thorough in his explanations and very reassuring through this process. Getting braces on not one, but two kids at one time could be difficult, but his office made it quite easy.
