Every smile starts with a complimentary consultation!
Your complimentary consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, as well as learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.
What is Phase I and Phase II treatment?
Phase I, or early interceptive treatment, is limited orthodontic treatment before all of the permanent teeth have erupted. This treatment is sometimes recommended to make more space for the developing teeth, correct crossbites, overbites, and underbites, or stop harmful oral habits. Phase II treatment is also called comprehensive treatment because it involves full braces when all of the permanent teeth have erupted.
Do braces hurt?
Generally, braces do not “hurt.” After certain visits, teeth may be sore for a few days. In these situations, pain medications such as Advil or Tylenol will ease the discomfort. However, after most visits, patients do not feel any soreness at all! We often remind our patients, “It does not have to hurt to work!”
How long will it take to complete treatment?
Treatment time obviously depends on each patient’s individual orthodontic needs. In general, treatment times range from 12-30 months. The “average” time frame a person wears braces is approximately 18-24 months.
How much will braces cost?
Are financing options available? How does my insurance work? We’re transparent and affordable. Our metal braces are only $2999! We will cover the cost and financial options during the initial examination. We have many financing options available to accommodate your needs, and we will review these with you. We will also review your insurance policy and help to maximize your benefit and file your claims.
I have crowns and missing teeth, can I wear braces?
Yes. A tooth with a crown will move just like a tooth with a simple filling. When teeth are missing, orthodontic treatment will aid in the alignment of the remaining teeth.
Do I need to see my family dentist while in braces?
Yes, please continue to visit your regular dentist every 6 months for cleanings and check-ups.
Your First Visit
When you arrive for your first visit, please bring your completed health information and insurance forms. Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. In most cases, we will provide an evaluation that will outline your existing orthodontic problems and proposed treatment.
