Why might someone need orthodontics?
Orthodontics can enhance both the appearance and the function of your smile. You or your loved one might need orthodontics to ensure a better bite, prevent decay and disease, and to create a beautiful smile. You can increase your confidence and whole body health with a simple orthodontic treatment.
When should orthodontic treatment begin?
You can achieve the smile of your dreams at any age, but it is advantageous to begin braces as early as possible. Children around the age of 7 can see their orthodontist to promote proper jawbone growth and optimal smile development.
Do braces hurt?
Some patients experience minimal pain or discomfort while they adjust to their braces. Modifications may also cause some soreness, but only for a brief period of time. Some patients choose to take over-the-counter pain relievers, but most patients find pain management unnecessary.
How long will my orthodontic treatment take?
The length of your orthodontic treatment will depend on your unique smile. The active phase of your orthodontic treatment could take anywhere from 6 months to over a year. After active treatment, retainers should be regularly worn to maintain your stunning results.
Will I need to limit my diet while I wear braces?
Patients who wear ceramic or metal braces should avoid sticky or hard foods that could damage their brackets or wires. Invisalign patients won’t have to make major changes to their diet, because they should remove their aligners before eating.
How much do braces cost?
The cost of your orthodontics will vary based on your preferences, needs, and style of braces. You won’t have to worry about the cost of your braces at Sundance Orthodontics, because we offer low monthly payment options and specialized payment plans.
