Our number one goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you have always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your treatment is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

Your new smile starts with a complimentary consultation!

That’s right… your initial consultation is complimentary and will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, and take a tour of our practice.  During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if you could benefit from orthodontic treatment
  • Create a customized treatment plan for you
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact us to schedule your complimentary consultation.

What happens next?

After your complimentary consultation, we will schedule your next appointment for the placement of your orthodontic appliance(s).

How long does the process take?
For most types of braces, it takes about 1-2 hours.
What will the orthodontist do?
First, the orthodontist will thoroughly clean and dry your teeth. Next, he or she will apply the bonding glue to your teeth and attach the brackets. The glue may taste unpleasant, but is harmless. Finally, the orthodontist will place the archwire in the brackets and secure them with elastic bands.
Does it hurt? For how long?
Getting them on doesn’t hurt, but your teeth and mouth will be sore afterwards. Expect your teeth and mouth to be sore for about a week.
Tips for dealing with the pain
Stick to soft foods for the first day or two – soup, mashed potatoes, yogurt, milkshakes, applesauce, scrambled eggs, mac and cheese, etc.
If necessary, use over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen or ibuprofen.

 

Scheduling Appointments

We know that life keeps you busy, so we offer convenient early morning and afternoon hours. Visiting the orthodontist every 4-6 weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment, with regular checkups lasting between 20-40 minutes. We will do all we can to ensure that you spend less time in the dental chair so you can spend more time enjoying what you love to do!

If you are running late or need to reschedule your appointment, please call us immediately; and we will do everything we can to see you the same day. Because we see a large number of patients, we may have to reschedule your appointment if you are more than 15 minutes late.

We request 24-hours’ notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We know that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment. However, please note that if you miss two appointments without notifying us 24 hours in advance, you may be subject to an additional fee.
