At what age should I consider braces for my child?
The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that children receive their first orthodontic screening by the age of seven years; this helps your orthodontist plan future treatments as baby teeth give way to permanent ones.
Most children are typically fitted for braces between eight and fourteen years of age.
What is the cost?
The cost for an orthodontic treatment with traditional dental braces will vary depending on the severity of the correction needed. The cost for traditional braces typically runs from $3,000 to $8,000 for a typical patient.
How long will my child have to wear braces?
Depending on the severity of the correction needed it may be anywhere from 6 months to 3 years. Dr. Danyluk and Team Orthodontics utilize exclusive cutting edge technology that is clinically proven to shorten the time braces are necessary by up to 50%.
How often will I have to come in for an appointment?
Once the braces are in, appointments are usually once every 4 to 6 weeks.
Are dental braces painful?
Technology for braces has come a long way in recent years with great strides being made in regards to braces causing discomfort. Modern brackets are smaller, less noticeable and much more comfortable than the metal braces of the past.
Are there braces alternatives that I can get?
Yes … today there are many different kinds of braces that you can choose from. Most people go with traditional metal braces as they are less expensive but there are options for braces alternatives including ceramic braces, lingual braces, and Invisalign.
Orthodontic treatment can do many positive things for your child including improvement of their overall dental health, improved speech, better digestion and perhaps most importantly improved self esteem. At Team Orthodontics we have numerous options, products and techniques that shorten and enhance our patient’s experience with orthodontic dentistry.
