Amazing Results From Advanced Braces

At Ocean’s Edge Orthodontics, we use a special kind of bracket that allows Dr. Murdoch to finish your orthodontic care with less discomfort and more quickly than with traditional braces. 

The type of braces we use are called “Self-Ligating Braces.” Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth.

Ask Us Anything!

What Is The Best Age To Get Braces?

The best time to get braces is during growth or the teen years. This allows treatment to accelerate and lets your smile achieve the best results.

As An Adult, Should I Consider Getting Braces?

You might be surprised to learn that close to 20% of patients with braces are actually over 18. Many adults decide to get braces because, while they couldn’t afford them as a kid, now they can. If you’re not happy with your smile, then braces can definitely a worthwhile investment for you.

If you’re interested in a more discrete alternative, Invisalign is a great clear alternative to braces! Even as an adult, there are plenty of orthodontic treatment options that can give you decades to enjoy your new, beautiful smile.

How Long Do Braces Take To Finish?

The amount of time spent in braces will vary depending on the individual patient, because every smile responds differently to treatment. For most patients, the treatment can take up to one to three years. There is however, the option at Ocean’s Edge Orthodontics to select a limited level of care for minor adjustments only. This treatment can be range from 6-12 months.

Are There Any Alternatives To Braces?

Clear braces and Invisalign are great alternatives to the metal braces that many people immediately picture. During your consultation, Dr. Murdoch can talk through which options make the most sense for your specific needs.
