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.
How much will braces cost? Are financing options available? How does my insurance work?
It is impossible to give an exact cost for treatment until we have examined you. We will cover the
exact 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.
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 18-22 months.
Is it too late to have braces if I am already an adult?
A surprising percentage of our patients are adults. In fact, 25 percent of all orthodontic patients
are adults. Health, happiness and self-esteem are vitally important to adults. No patient is "too
old" to wear braces!
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.
