Frequently Asked Questions

What treatment options do you offer?

We offer a variety of treatments including braces, clear aligners, and retainers. We’ll work with you to find which treatment best fits your needs.

How long will I need treatment for?

Treatment duration will depend on your unique needs and desires. Rest assured, we’ll help you get the smile you want in the shortest amount of time. We offer free consultations to give you an exact estimate of treatment time.

Will orthodontic treatment be painful?

It is perfectly normal for braces and clear aligners to cause some discomfort at times throughout treatment. On the day treatment begins, we’ll go through several tips and tricks to help you manage potential discomfort and troubleshoot any issues that might arise.

How much does treatment cost?

The cost of treatment will vary depending on your type of treatment. We offer free consultations to give you an exact estimate.

Do you accept insurance?

Yes! We are in-network with most insurances and are currently accepting Medicaid.

How do I take care of my teeth during treatment?

This can vary depending on the type of treatment you receive. Our team will work with you to make sure you’re informed on how to take care of your teeth during your treatment. However, regardless of treatment type, we will always recommend that you continue to see your general dentist at least every 6 months while in our care.

What should I do if I lose/break my retainer?

If you lose or break your retainer, please contact our office as soon as possible so we can make you a new one. If it has been a while since you’ve lost your retainer, we may recommend an office visit to determine the next course of action.

At what age can you start receiving treatment

Treatment typically begins around age 11 or 12 when all or most of the baby teeth have been lost. However, it is recommended that children first see an orthodontist at the age of 7. This is to determine if any early orthodontic intervention will be necessary. We offer free initial consultations and free monitoring visits all the way up until it is time to begin treatment.

What happens when I finish treatment?

Once treatment is finished, we will discuss with you how to take care of your new smile. In most cases, you will likely need to wear retainers to maintain the new position of your teeth and bite. We will typically monitor your case for a full year after treatment has ended, and then on an as-needed basis.
