Frequently Asked Questions

We offer various orthodontic services, including traditional braces, clear aligners, early orthodontic treatment for children, and adult orthodontics. We also specialize in jaw alignment and bite correction procedures.  

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for improving the aesthetics of your smile; it also helps with improper bites, misaligned jaws, and overcrowded teeth. If you have any concerns about your teeth or jaw, we encourage you to schedule a consultation. 

It’s advised by the American Association of Orthodontists to schedule a child’s initial orthodontic assessment at age 7. Identifying orthodontic conditions early on is essential for successful and efficient treatment. 

Absolutely not! Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful and healthy smile. It’s best to consult an orthodontist to know whether or not braces are the best option for your condition. 

The cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on individual needs and treatment plans. We offer flexible payment plans, and we accept most orthodontic insurance plans. 

Your first visit is about getting to know you and your orthodontic needs. We will take necessary X-rays, perform a thorough examination, and discuss potential treatment options.

Treatment time varies based on the complexity of the orthodontic issue being corrected and can range from several months to a few years. We’ll provide an estimated timeline during your consultation. 

We understand that our patients have busy lives, so we will try to accommodate your appointment. We also offer some Friday appointments.

Many dental insurance plans include orthodontic benefits. We will help you understand your coverage and maximize your benefits. 

We will provide detailed instructions on caring for your braces, which include regular brushing, flossing, and avoiding certain foods.

It is recommended to maintain regular dental check-ups and cleanings with your family dentist every six months

Definitely, flexible spending accounts can be employed to cover the total or partial costs of orthodontic care. FSAs, typically part of employee benefit packages, provide a tax-advantaged way to manage these expenses. If you’re not currently enrolled in an FSA, you may want to inquire with your employer about the availability of this option. 

We're excited to be a part of your transformation!
