Are braces right for me?
For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you're self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns with braces will greatly improve the way you look and feel. There are several different types of braces to fit your lifestyle, including: clear braces, ceramic braces, invisible braces, and traditional metal braces.

What is the cost of braces?
The cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary, depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss the cost of your treatment and each available payment plan option, including insurance coverage. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget and on what to expect before beginning treatment.
What is the duration of treatment?
Treatment time varies and can last anywhere from 6 to 30 months depending on several factors including age, method, and severity of treatment needs. A big factor in successful treatment is you! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be.
Before beginning your orthodontic care, your treatment coordinator will discuss your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Typically however, most standard treatments last about 22 months.
What is the best age to visit the Orthodontist?
If you want to improve the look and feel of your smile, then any age can be a great time to see the orthodontist. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children first visit an orthodontist around the age of seven, but orthodontic treatment is not exclusive to children and teens.
About one in every five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Whether you’re considering treatment for yourself or for a child, any age is a good time to visit the orthodontist.
