The team at Farr West Orthodontics will thoroughly assess your smile before recommending that braces be placed. Dr. Richards will take into account the referral from your dentist, if you have one, and evaluate the images of your teeth and jaw.

Braces consist of a series of brackets which are placed on the teeth, and wires that attach to these brackets. Throughout the course of your treatment, Dr. Richards will adjust this system a little at a time to reposition teeth into their proper place. Braces are often the most efficient way to correct smiles. Dr. Richards uses this orthodontic treatment for children, teens, and adults. Many of our older patients worry that braces will give them an immature appearance, but today’s braces are created to effectively straighten your teeth in a small amount of time and more and more adults are wearing braces. We also offer ceramic braces and Invisalign for adults and mature teens! Ask during your initial exam.
