About Orthodontics

Smiling Couple

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 through orthodontics with Doctors Floreani, O’Toole & Dool will greatly improve the way you look and feel.  It’s what we do all day long, and have done for over the past 25+ years!

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 we’re dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontics uses appliances that 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 their proper position.

You can now choose clear or metal brackets, hidden braces (Incognito), or clear aligners (Invisalign) and, in some cases, the color of your appliances to suit your style! 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 or clear aligners!
