There are a ton of different ways to get straight, beautiful teeth. From clear aligners to the usual metal brackets and wires, your child has a seemingly endless supply from which to choose if you want them to get straight teeth.

The best way to figure out what will work for your child’s smile is to understand the orthodontics process from start to finish. So sit back for a few minutes while we walk you through the process.

It’s not just braces
Contrary to popular belief, a dentist doesn’t just handle braces. In fact, Dr. Justin Warcup works on all aspects of creating a great smile and there’s more to it than just braces; jaw alignment, tongue thrust, and palate expansion are all factors that may need to be taken into account.
