Orthodontic treatment gives your child a healthy and beautiful smile. Our specialists are dedicated to the complete care of your child.
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.
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!”
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.
With Invisalign, there′s no reason to step back from your professional or social life and every reason to lean in. The nearly invisible aligners allow you go about your life with confidence, and give you a clear path to a beautiful smile. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made retainers, called aligners, to gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign aligners are completely clear, smooth, and removable. This means no irritation from metal braces, no off-limits foods, and no interference with your life! Each patient is different, but treatment typically takes 9 to 15 months for most adults.
We also offer Invisalign Teen! Let’s be honest, your teen might already be feeling self-conscious about their teeth! Invisalign Teen allows them to straighten their smile without drawing attention to the treatment. Additionally, being able to remove the clear aligners means no off-limit foods. Teens can expect to wear Invisalign as long as they would traditional braces.
If your teeth — and your smile — don't live up to your expectations, don't worry. Clarity bracketss are designed to straighten your teeth, close the gaps between teeth and help with crowded teeth.
Most people who have mild or moderate issues with their teeth's positioning can gain lifelong benefits from the use of 3M Clarity. If you want to improve your smile, ask your orthodontist about 3M Clarity today.
