Frequently Asked Questions

 

Does orthodontic treatment hurt?

When braces are initially put on, there is some discomfort for a few days and mild pain. Taking Advil or similar over the counter medication can relieve the discomfort until the mouth has adjusted to the new braces.

What is the average time for full orthodontic treatment?

Treatment is usually 18-30 months unique to each person as evaluated by the Orthodontist.

What is the right age for an Orthodontic Consultation?

We recommend every child see an Orthodontist by age 7 for an initial evaluation.

How long do I need to wear my retainer?

Retainers are important to maintain the new shape of the teeth. They should be worn full time until instructed otherwise.

What is a bite plate for?

A bite plate lifts your front teeth up so that you do not loosen any lower brackets.
