WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

I love the environment at this office. I took my one year old there and he got really good care. I loved the assistant that took care of us. She was very caring and attentive to our needs. Everyone knows that one year olds can be difficult to take anywhere, but she helped out a lot! Definitely will be coming back.

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 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.

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
