How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances 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 the proper position.

Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose clear or metal brackets and, in some cases, the color of your appliance. 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!

Duration of Treatment

Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is. A big factor in a successful treatment is you! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive or early treatment can also help provide a quicker treatment time.

Before beginning your orthodontic care, your doctor will discuss all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our orthodontic office to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.

"At 75 years of age, I never thought I could have a nice smile again. My teeth had shifted so much something had to be done. At Struble Orthodontics I found the answer. Everyone was very pleasant and professional. They explained the whole process very clearly. It has been an excellent experience with great results."


"An excellent rating does not go far enough to express how awesome Dr. Struble has been. As a busy college senior, she has repeatedly worked with my schedule to make sure all my needs were met. I had met with other orthodontists in Bend in the past, and experienced a lack of patient care. I was only willing to work with Dr. Struble. She is an incredible orthodontist and person, and I highly recommend her practice to ANYONE who needs orthodontic care."
