Commonly Asked Questions

Is orthodontic treatment too expensive for me?

Orthodontic fees vary depending on the severity of the problem, complexity of treatment, and length of treatment time. Because it is important that patients have the opportunity to receive treatment, we offer extended payment plans and try to make the fee work into your monthly budget.

Will insurance help pay for treatment?

If you have dental insurance that includes orthodontic treatment, we will review your dental plan with you and, if the insurance is assignable (most are), will develop a payment plan for the difference, if there is one.

Will braces interfere with my lifestyle?

Absolutely not! You can do anything with braces – sing, play a musical instrument, play sports, kiss, and have your picture taken.

Do braces hurt?

We try to make all treatment as gentle as possible; consequently there is little, if any, discomfort. Like anything new, it takes a few days to adjust to the braces and the teeth may be a little tender for 1-2 days after each appointment. The good news is that the modern techniques and materials that we use today have greatly reduced the discomfort of wearing braces as well as decreased the frequency of office visits and overall treatment time.
