What is an Orthodontist?

An Orthodontist specializes in the proper alignment of the teeth and jaw using corrective devices like braces and retainers. A great smile starts with  a good bite and straight teeth. It is ideal to correct orthodontic problems while your child’s face and jaw are still growing.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child has an orthodontic consultation by age seven. However, adults everywhere are now treating themselves to a beautiful smile, and one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21.

What is the process of getting braces? 

Before we put on your braces, we will take a few pictures, Digital X-rays, molds of your teeth and help you choose your braces. In many cases, modern braces have become a fashion statement with fun-colored ties. More discrete options are popular with adults, like ceramic tooth-colored braces or clear aligners. Once you have your braces, office visits are typically scheduled every 4-6 weeks. 

Are there payment options?

We will work with you to tailor a payment plan that fits your budget. Monthly payment plans as low as $99 per month are available to qualifying patients with easy in-house financing with no interest. We accept many insurance plans. If you do not have dental insurance, check out our My Smile Dental Plan™, a cost-effective way to save on your orthodontic treatment.
