Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?
Orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. Orthodontists have a special focus within dentistry correcting bites and straightening your teeth. While they both can look after your overall oral care, orthodontists will help you correct problems like overbite, underbite, and general teeth alignment.
When should my child first visit an orthodontist?
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, it's recommended that children no later than age 7 should receive an initial consultation. There are enough permanent teeth and jaw growth by this age to begin to identify problems. Additionally, having a consultation early allows the orthodontist to determine the best time for treatment to begin.
Can I see an orthodontist if I'm an adult?
Yes, definitely. Many orthodontic patients are adults. It's never too late to get the opportunity to have a beautiful healthy smile.
How long will I need braces?
Obviously, the time it takes for a patient's treatment depends on the specific problem, however, in general, treatment times range from anywhere between 18 and 30 months. Also remember that the patient's cooperation also plays a large role in how long the treatment takes.
Do braces hurt?
Probably the most common question. The answer is that while there is some discomfort (mainly in the beginning of treatment), wearing braces is generally not "painful." If you do experience discomfort mild over-the-counter medications like Advil should help ease any soreness.
