Orthodontics works by applying gentle forces to the teeth over a long duration of time… plus a bit of magic that they only teach in orthodontic residency! There are a lot of different ways to apply those gentle forces, but traditional braces and Invisalign® are the most common ways Dr. Mathue moves teeth at Rise + Smile Orthodontics. 

There are many reasons why a patient may need braces, and sometimes patients don’t need braces at all! We can discuss why you may or may not need braces at your free consultation at our Austin orthodontic office. 

Orthodontic treatment does involve a time commitment, though we work hard to make your time spent in our office as efficient as possible. Overall treatment length can vary anywhere from a few months to a few years depending on your need and treatment goals. Due to the more efficient self-ligating brackets that we use, we usually only need to see patients every eight weeks. That leaves more time for yourself, and less time missing school or work.

Your new smile begins with a thorough examination where we formulate a complete diagnosis and treatment plan in order to achieve the smile you want. Our goal is to thoroughly discuss your treatment options so that you can make an informed decision on creating your new smile. At Rise + Smile Orthodontics, we personalize each patient experience by taking the time to listen to your concerns so that we can create a smile that you are excited to share.  

Lastly, giving back to the community is important to us at Rise + Smile Orthodontics. Whether through donations, local school sponsorships, or pro bono orthodontics, we are always looking for ways to give back. As we continue to grow, we hope to find new ways to help those around us.
