At what age should my child see an orthodontist?
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a screening examination by the age of 7. Please see the Early Treatments for Children section to learn more.
How much does an orthodontic treatment cost?
Fees are based on the severity of the malocclusion and the duration of the treatment. Costs therefore vary from one patient to another. We will provide you with a precise estimate of the costs during your first visit. We offer flexible methods of payment to help you stay within your budget. Several insurance companies offer partial coverage for orthodontic fees. Also note that expenses for orthodontic care may be deducted as medical expenses. Adequate fiscal planning may help you recover a large portion of your expenses.
How long does a treatment last?
The duration will depend on the severity of the malocclusion, the patient’s age, and how well the problem responds to treatment. We will provide you with an estimate of the treatment’s duration, which is generally between 12 and 36 months.
What are the benefits of an orthodontic treatment?
A beautiful smile will of course improve your appearance and self-esteem along with all the social advantages it provides, but that is not all. Cavities, gum disease, and abnormal wear of the teeth will decrease. In some cases, correcting a malocclusion may also facilitate chewing and pronunciation. In other words, orthodontics will help you keep your mouth healthy!
How frequent are appointments?
This will depend on the steps of the treatment. In general, patients come in for adjustments every six to eight weeks.
Should I expect to experience pain?
Some amount of discomfort is to be expected during the week that follows the initial application of appliances. Pain can be managed with analgesics such as ibuprofen. Subsequent pain episodes are shorter and less frequent. If you have a low pain threshold, please do not hesitate to warn us: we will adapt your treatment accordingly.
What dietary restrictions must be followed?
Must I continue to visit a dentist during orthodontic treatment?
Yes! Follow-up with a dentist is more important than ever during orthodontic treatment in order to prevent cavities or gum disease. Circumstances such as inadequate hygiene may prompt us to suggest more frequent visits to the dentist.
