Parents’ Top Questions
Does my child need braces?
This largely depends on your age. Overlapping teeth, and under or overbite and problems chewing or speaking are signs that you might need orthodontic treatment.
Once my treatment is completed, will I need to wear a retainer?
Yes, we recommend all of our patients wear retainers at least while they sleep once their treatment is completed.
Is orthodontic care expensive?
Check with your healthcare provider to see what kind of assistance they offer for orthodontic care. We offer flexible, customizable payment plans to make financing as easy as touching a screen!
Does orthodontic care hurt?
Most patients do experience some discomfort during the beginning of their treatment, and for a short amount of time after adjustments to your braces or clear aligners. The cases are usually mild and do not normally last for the entire time.
Can my child receive treatment if they are missing some of their baby teeth?
Yes! In fact, it is important to begin making room for your child’s incoming permanent teeth before, not after, they come in!
What if a wire or bracket breaks or comes loose?
Not to worry! If you call us as soon as you notice something is wrong, we can schedule an appointment and fix the problem as soon as possible!
