Is it difficult to keep braces clean?
As part of the process of a new patient, we provide our patients with a full instructional procedure detailing how to keep their braces clean. Our office also provides our patients with all the necessary instruments to follow the cleaning procedures. Braces are more difficult to clean and more susceptible to calculus buildup, thus we do recommend that our patients receive a professional hygiene cleaning at least every 3-4 months. Dr. Samuel has a list of trustworthy hygienist who have been cleaning patients with braces of years and will make sure your oral hygiene does not worsen due to braces.
I am a 31 year old woman, is it normal for adults to get braces?
Of course it is! Braces are not only used for cosmetic beauty, braces can help fix malocclusion (incorrect biting). Malocclusion, if not fixed, can wear down tooth enamel and cause cavities. Braces are always an improvement to the overall look and oral health of our patients. Our office strongly recommends braces, no matter the age. In our office we are very used to dealing with all age groups from 7 years of age to 60 years of age. The ASDA recommends that a child sees an orthodontist at the age of 7 to have a preliminary evaluation of how his/her teeth are growing in.
How long are your patients usually in braces?
The time of each individual in braces varies and depends on the patient’s chief complaint to be fixed. The time length for braces ranges between 9-12 months for small children in Phase 1 of braces and 12-36 months for regular braces. The choice of brackets or Invisalign has no change in the amount of time in treatment. Our office works hard to reduce our patient’s time in braces to allow our patients to enjoy their new beautiful smiles. Our orthodontist wants our patients to achieve the best results and will consistently give the patient advice to maintain oral hygiene.
What is the general price for braces at your office?
The price of braces ranges widely. The price of each treatment for our patient is unique because we tailor the treatment specifically for each patient. The price depends on estimated time that the patient will be in braces, the choice of bracket, and any specific appliance needed for treatment. As previously mentioned, the orthodontic consultation is 100% free and our office would love to give you a free, no obligation quote.
Would insurance cover the cost of braces?
For our patient’s convenience we accept all major insurances and are more than happy to contact them regarding your orthodontic benefits. Most insurance do have some orthodontic benefits and those would be detailed in the procedures list of your insurance. A quick way to find out your orthodontic benefits would be to call your insurance company directly. We would like our patients to keep in mind that for some insurances, orthodontic benefits are limited by age.
How long does it take to bond the braces fully?
Our orthodontist recommends that the braces be bonded in 2 separate appointments. Dr. Samuel recommends that on the first appointment the upper arch of the mouth be bonded so that treatment on the upper teeth can begin and then a follow up 6 weeks later is when the bottom arch will be bonded. Through the years in his experience as an orthodontist, Dr. Samuel has found that applying the braces in this manner reduces the initial pain and discomfort while allowing teeth to become more susceptible to the movement with the braces
How much would I have to pay for an Orthodontic Consultation?
The Orthodontic Consultation at any of our Gentle Braces office is 100% complimentary. The consultation consists of two X-Rays, detailed notes, and a profound explanation of the technique of the braces by Dr. Samuel, our orthodontist. Dr. Samuel provides patients with a detailed description of their time in braces giving them realistic expectations as well as using models to demonstrate to the patients what the braces will accomplish. At the end of the consultation, the patient will receive the treatment plan with their quoted value and will be accommodated to start treatment the same day of their consultation if they wish to.
What kind of braces does your office offer?
Our offices are able to offer our patients metal brackets, clear/ceramic brackets, and lingual brackets. Metal brackets can be seen regularly on kids and can be ornamented with colors of our patient’s choosing. Similarly, the clear/ceramic brackets provide our patients with braces without all the metal. Last but not least, our lingual brackets are specifically made for our patient’s unique teeth structure and are placed on the inside face of the teeth, ultimately hiding the braces from view
Does your office offer Invisalign?
For our patients’ convenience, our dental office is a proud provider of Invisalign. Our staff has been professional trained to handle Invisalign cases and is able to offer our patients with excellent patient care and treatment planning so that our patient’s can get the most out of their treatment.
