Braces and More for Teens in Reynoldsburg, OH!

Braces, retainers, and everything else you want to know about orthodontics at Erkis & Hickman Orthodontics!

So, you just found out that you need braces. You may feel like it’s the end of the world, but having braces really isn’t that bad—and the results you’ll achieve will be totally worth it!

Braces from Erkis & Hickman Orthodontics come in a variety of styles, materials, and colors, which makes life with braces much easier, more comfortable, and even more stylish than in the past. Gone are the days of giant metal brackets and bulky, uncomfortable headgear. Today, you can have braces and smile in style!

Braces Your Way!

Erkis & Hickman Orthodontics offers a variety of braces, types, and styles to choose from. Some common options include:

  • Ceramic braces
  • Invisalign® clear aligners
  • Traditional metal braces with fun colored elastics

Regardless of whether you choose bracket treatment or aligner treatment, the amount of time it takes to achieve your beautiful smile depends on a few key factors:

  • What needs correction — The amount of treatment needed to correct a problem will determine how long the process takes. Different patients react to treatments differently, so it may take one patient only 12 months to complete the treatment, but it may take another 24 months. Treatment times can vary, depending on how quickly your body responds and how much work is needed to give you the show-stopping smile you desire.
  • YOU! — Your willingness to use the appliances we give you plays a major role in the length of time it takes to complete your treatment. Always remember to take care of your braces and appliances; this truly will help make your treatment shorter!

Orthodontic treatment is a big part of life for many people your age. While braces may have had a bad reputation in the past, today’s braces make it easy to look good and feel good! Learn more about braces during your initial visit to our Reynoldsburg, OH office! You’ll also get a tour of our office, meet our doctors, and find out which treatment option is right for you. We look forward to meeting you!
