When should my child see an orthodontist?
We stand by the American Association of Orthodontists’ recommendation that every child first visit an orthodontist by age 7, or earlier if a problem is detected by parents, the family dentist, or the child’s physician. However, orthodontic treatment can be started at any age.
What does treatment look like?
There are a variety of treatment options, but they all work in a similar manner. Braces or aligners use steady gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into their proper positions.
Will braces interfere with my day to day activities?
Besides following a few dietary guidelines, patients with braces will find that their braces do not limit them.
Patients with braces can still play sports, but we recommend that they protect their smiles by wearing a mouth guard when participating in any sporting activity. Mouth guards are inexpensive, comfortable, and come in a variety of colors and patterns.
Individuals with braces are also free to play musical instruments, but they will need an adjustment period.
Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?
No! Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and we work with many adult patients. Whether you’re after a straighter smile or a more comfortable bite, schedule your consultation to see if orthodontic treatment is right for you.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept payment by American Express, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. We are happy to discuss payment plans and set up payments that will work for you, and we also offer a discount for paying in full upfront.
Do I need to see my family dentist during treatment?
Yes, please continue seeing your general dentist every six months for cleanings and checkups.
Do braces hurt?
Braces and wires continue to become more advanced, allowing us to keep pain to a minimum. Getting your braces put on is not painful, but you may experience some soreness for a few days, and your lips and cheeks may need some time to adjust to having something on your teeth. Over the counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can be used to reduce soreness, and we’re happy to provide brace covers to prevent discomfort.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment times average one to two years, but completely depend on the individual treatment plan. Actual treatment time is affected by a variety of factors, like rate of growth, the severity of the condition, and patient compliance.
How much do braces cost?
Final costs depend on your specific treatment plan and any insurance! Your initial consultation is always free and you are under no obligation to continue with any more appointments. We will provide an estimate for treatment and are also more than happy to file a pre-determination form to your insurance. We work hard to make sure orthodontics is affordable.
What insurance plans do you accept?
We accept most insurance plans and we’d be happy to check what coverage your plan offers.
We ask that you assign your insurance benefit to us, and we will arrange for you to pay the balance. We provide care to you, our patient, not your insurance company, so the insurance company is responsible to the patient and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
Please understand that the insurance information provided by our office is an estimate of benefit only. Final determination of benefit will be provided once a claim is sent and eligibility is verified by your company. It is up to the individual to understand their benefits and how they are paid.
