Not Your Mother’s Braces

Metal braces often suffer from a reputation of being bulky and obvious. With advancements in modern technology, however, metal braces from Elizabeth Blake Orthodontics in Hopkinton are smaller, more discrete, and more comfortable than ever before.

How Metal Braces Work

During your first visit with Dr. Blake and Dr. Peluso, we’ll take X-rays and pictures of your teeth to develop a 3D image of your mouth. After determining your unique needs, Elizabeth Blake Orthodontics will develop a personalized treatment plan that works in your favor.

Next, Dr. Blake and Dr. Peluso will carefully attach a bracket to each of your teeth with special orthodontic glue—don’t worry, it is 100% safe! Then you’re ready for the connective wire that aligns your teeth over time.

By creating bends in this wire during your regular appointments in the Elizabeth Blake Orthodontics office, your smile will naturally shift into gear so you can cruise around Hopkinton with a grin you’re proud of. This process is called remodeling.

How Long is the Treatment Process?

The number one question Dr. Blake and Dr. Peluso’s patients ask is “How long does treatment take to correct my smile?” Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, because everyone’s mouth is different.

Each patient has a unique set of needs that depend on the severity of their orthodontic problems. That means treatment time with metal braces will be different every single time.

Although there is no definitive answer, patients spend an average of 18 to 22 months in their metal braces from Elizabeth Blake Orthodontics. Some lucky patients undergo treatment for only six months!

However, other patients with several dental issues can wear braces for over three years. Even though treatment times may vary, you may begin to see results in as little as a few months.

No matter how long the process takes for your smile, the end goal is sure to be worth it. Dr. Blake and Dr. Peluso are experts in crafting healthier, happier smiles that last a lifetime.
