Frequently asked questions

Do I still have to get my teeth cleaned by the dentist during orthodontic treatment?

Yes. It is especially important to keep up with regular cleanings when you have braces. Even orthodontic patients who take great care of their teeth are likely to experience higher levels of plaque build-up. Kids with braces need to get dental cleanings and exams every six months or more as needed to keep the patients oral hygiene at its best.

What financing options are available for my child’s braces?

We have competitive pricing with affordable payment options that work with most family budgets.  Our payment plans start as low as 0% down, $125 per month with easy to qualify-for options.    

What should I expect at an orthodontic evaluation?

At your child’s first visit to the orthodontist, the doctor will examine your child’s mouth for indications of problems with spacing and alignment that could have negative consequences if not addressed with orthodontic treatment. The orthodontist will be looking for problems with your child’s bite, or the relationship between their upper and lower jaws, and how the teeth are spaced along the jaws. They will take X-rays and discuss findings, treatment plans and payment options if applicable.

Is orthodontic care covered by Medicaid? By other insurance?

Medicaid covers the cost of braces for children if it is determined that orthodontic treatment is medically necessary. Most private insurance plans also cover a fixed portion of the cost of braces for children and adults. Our orthodontic team works directly with Medicaid and other insurance providers to ensure that patients can get the care they need. We also provide very competitive pricing and have flexible payment plans for those not covered by other insurance.

When to use local anesthesia for children?

The best choice of dental sedation or anesthesia for kids depends on several factors including the child’s age, temperament, and the amount of treatment required. Local anesthetics like lidocaine can be applied topically or injected into the gums to numb an area of the mouth.

Under the influence of local anesthetic, the area of the mouth anesthetized will not experience any sensation of pain. With use of local anesthetics, the patient is fully conscious and although, the child should not feel pain, they may still experience an element of anxiety associated with the operative
