Braces

Dentist in Grand Rapids, MI

Braces impacts your health, appearance, and more.

Crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean. This makes them more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and provide a more attractive appearance. A straight, healthy smile helps to boost self-esteem, self-confidence, and your self-image.

If you suffer from crooked, uneven, or misaligned teeth, braces can help.

The length of your treatment will depend on your individual plan. During your consultation with Dr. Michael Nichols, we will discuss your options. Once you select your treatment, we will estimate its length.

There are factors that can affect the duration of your treatment. Some of these include:

  • Early Orthodontic Intervention: If you had early intervention, some steps have already been completed. This may shorten the time you need for this treatment.
  • Type of Treatment: Depending on your needs, you may have braces, elastics, aligners, or other options. Which treatment you receive will affect its length.
  • Compliance: Following our instructions will allow your treatment to work more quickly.

At Nichols Family Dentistry, we offer advanced solutions for your treatment. Depending on your needs, we may recommend:

  • Traditional Braces
  • Aligners
