Dentofacial orthopedics (orthodontics of the teeth and face) is a branch of dentistry that treats and educates patients about their dental and facial abnormalities.

The answer is no. Many of our customers are referred to us by their family dentist, while others take the initiative to arrange their own examinations.

At the time of your arrival, a member of our staff and/or a doctor will meet with each patient and/or parent to help you become acquainted with our office and get ready for your first exam. We'll get all the images and X-rays we need to properly diagnose your condition. After that, the doctor will do a quick but comprehensive physical examination of the patient.

In order to get the greatest possible orthodontic outcome, tooth extractions are occasionally necessary. The purpose of orthodontics is to achieve straight teeth and a well-balanced facial profile. Because of advancements in orthodontic technology, it may no longer necessarily essential to extract teeth in order to undergo orthodontic treatment.

Each patient's orthodontic condition dictates the length of treatment. A typical course of therapy might last anywhere from 12 to 30 months. People wear braces for an average of 22 months on average.

Without initial examination, it is hard to provide a precise cost estimate. During the first assessment, we will discuss the precise cost and available payment methods. We have several financing alternatives available to meet your requirements, and we will discuss them with you. In addition, we will analyze your insurance coverage and assist you in maximizing your benefits and filing claims.

Yes! While wearing braces, it is essential that you see your family dentist on a regular basis to keep your teeth healthy. Remember, healthy teeth move quicker.
