About Orthodontics

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns with braces will greatly improve the way you look and feel.

When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! We also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, and our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.

Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose clear or metal brackets and, in some cases, the color of your appliance. Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. Today, any age is a great age to wear braces!

Duration of Treatment

Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is. A big factor in a successful treatment is you! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive or early treatment can also help provide a quicker treatment time.

Before beginning your orthodontic care, your doctor will discuss all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our practice to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.

  • Every staff member from the receptionists to assistants to Dr. Blue were so incredibly friendly I thought I was at Disneyland at 7:30 in the morning! I was well taken care of. The interior design is very posh and unexpected for an orthodontist office! It was a great experience…would highly recommend!

  • Dr. Blue and his staff make you feel like family. We have never had a day in that office where the staff was not happy, friendly and eager to help. They explain treatments, procedures and answer questions to the fullest each time we are there. We love them.

  • I would definitely recommend Blue Orthodontics. Both my daughter and I are in braces. The staff is so friendly and accomodating, they coordinate our appointments together which makes life much easier. Dr. Blue himself is awesome..he always explains what they are doing and what the next steps in my treatment are going to be.
