Are you interested in knowing how your Boca Raton, FL, dentists can help you?

Drs. Micheal Hennessy, Karen Zargar, Sandy Goldenberg, and George Soropoulos offer patients with the dental care they need: Braces. bracesThey identify problems, create custom plans, and, finally, execute the necessary orthodontic treatment.

What are braces?

Braces fix bad bites, poor chewing function, underbite, and malocclusions, crooked, and/or crowded teeth. These issues are are more predominant at about age seven, but orthodontic treatment begins at ages 8 to 14, while their bone structure developed.

Treatment can last up to 3 years but that varies from one person to another.

What are repercussions for not receiving braces?
