​How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances can be 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 a corrected position.

Braces In General:

Erica B: Actual Patient of Dr. Bubon; Results achieved without extractions and in less than 2 years! This is a great time to wear braces! Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can choose brackets that are clear or metallic color. You can choose the color of the ties that hold the wire in brackets. Wires are also less noticeable than they used to be and the latest materials move teeth faster with less discomfort to patients.

Duration of Treatment:

Courtney B: Actual Patient of Dr. Bubon; Treated in 2 phases but only needed 8 months of braces to achieve these results!

Treatment time typically ranges from one to three years, depending on the growth of the patient’s mouth and face and the severity of the problem. Patients grow at different rates and will respond variously to orthodontic treatment, so the time to case completion may differ from the original estimate. The patient’s diligent use of any prescribed rubber bands or headgear is an important factor in achieving the most efficient treatment. Interceptive, or early treatment procedures, may take as few as six months.

Most Valuable Parent | MVP Club

If you’re a parent of a Bubon Orthodontics patient, we want you to know how much we appreciate you. In fact, we appreciate you SO much, we started a club in your honor! “We always make a point to thank our kid patients for coming in,” says Kristin Soiney, Bubon Orthodontics Treatment Coordinator. “But it’s the parents who bring them. “We recognize the effort it takes to do that for sometimes several years.” That’s why Bubon Orthodontics created the MVP Club – for “Most Valuable Parent.” “It’s a way to give back to parents,” Kristin says. “Parents reward kids for things. Sometimes parents need a little reward.” The MVP Club has weekly drawings for gift cards, which can include everything from ice cream to dinner at a restaurant. MVP members can even get discounts on ortho fees for themselves or their spouse. Check out the MVP Club on the Bubon Orthodontics Facebook page, or visit the MVP Club page below.
