Am I too old for braces?

You’re never too old to enjoy a straight, healthy smile. In fact, we have even completed Invisalign treatment on one lovely lady who was 80 years young!

How old should my child be before he or she gets braces?

In most situations, we usually start orthodontics by age 8 or 9. However, we have treated children with early orthodontic treatment as young as age 5. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children receive an orthodontic evaluation by age 7.

Will my insurance pay for orthodontic treatment?

It depends on the type of treatment you need and the severity of your case. In general, we usually finish our cases 6-8 months earlier.

img_1462How long will I need to wear braces?

The length of time that you spend in braces will depend on several different factors. For one, are you having accelerated treatment or wearing traditional braces? Some types of orthodontics work quicker than others. During your initial consultation, we can provide you with an estimated length of time for different types of braces, as they relate to your individual smile needs.
