Treatment At Thirty Two & You
We believe that orthodontics involves more than "straightening teeth" — it enhances health and self-esteem, and may improve a person’s overall quality of life. At Thirty Two & You, orthodontics treatment follows these steps:
- At your first visit, you meet with Dr. Ryan Bygness and discuss your concerns.
- Dr. Bygness conducts a thorough examination of your teeth, bite and facial balance.
- He then discusses the diagnosis and present a customized treatment plan. It is important
to us that you have a complete understanding of the diagnosis, treatment plan and financial
investment so you can make a informed decision.
- If you want to move forward, we begin implementing your individualized treatment plan.
For most people, achieving a healthier, happier smile is their motivation for orthodontic care.

With a full range of orthodontics services offered right from our office in downtown Denison, we are the easiest, most effective way to achieve a happier, healthier smile. Our practice is dedicated to giving you the quality care you deserve.
How Orthodontics Works
Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.
Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose clear or metal brackets and, in some cases, the color of your appliance. Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. If you’re looking for a straighter smile and quality dental care in southwest Iowa, it’s not too late to visit Thirty Two & You! We offer you customized care at any age.
Duration Of Treatment
Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors, including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is. A big factor in a successful treatment is you! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient and effective your orthodontics treatment will be.
For children, receiving interceptive or early treatment can also help ensure a quicker treatment time.
Before beginning your orthodontic care, Dr. Bygness will discuss all your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact us to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide, right here in Denison.
