Starting your orthodontic treatment is a very special moment. When you first get your braces on, we will ask you the following question, “what colors would you today?” The possibilities are endless!

Braces are secured to the archwire by tiny little elastics or “o-rings”. At every regularly scheduled orthodontic adjustment, we will replace your o-rings with new ones so you have the option to change to different colors each time. How cool is that? We can’t wait to hear what colors you have chosen at your next appointment!
