There are a ton of different ways to get straight, beautiful teeth. Even if you need a lot of work done before you can get your teeth straightened, you have a lot of different things to choose from.

The best way to figure out what will work for you is to understand the orthodontics process from start to finish. That’s the goal of this post, so let’s get started.

It’s not just braces
Contrary to popular belief, a orthodontist doesn’t just handle braces. In fact, Dr. Joseph Wilson works on all aspects of creating a great smile. For some people, that involves bite alignment or changing a tongue thrust. Both of these take some time to correct.
