Frequently Asked Questions
Is it a requirement that my orthodontist’s appointment is scheduled by the family dentist?
How old do I need to be to get an orthodontic screening?
It is the recommendation of the American Association of Orthodontists that an individual gets a screening at the age of 7. By that age, there has been the eruption of many permanent teeth in the majority of children, enabling us to assess your condition in the most effective way.
Will my teeth become straighter as they grow?
Unfortunately, they will not. The available space for the front teeth will not get bigger as you age. In the majority of individuals, after the eruption of the permanent molars, the available space for the front teeth will decrease as they age.
What is the cost of the procedure? Are there available options for financing? What role does my insurance play?
It is not possible to provide a precise cost for treatment before the examination is done. During the initial exam, your financial options and exact cost will be covered. There are several available financing options to meet your needs and these will be reviewed with you. Your insurance policy will also be reviewed to assist you in maximizing your benefit and filing your claims.
