About Orthodontic Care
Orthodontics for Children
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, children should visit the orthodontist by age seven, when they have both baby and adult teeth. This helps the orthodontist correct problems with the teeth and jaw nonsurgically. By beginning orthodontics early, we can encourage the permanent teeth to erupt in the right position as well as prevent overcrowding.
Children should see the orthodontist if they:
Are losing their baby teeth early or late Are struggling to chew their food Are sucking their thumb or finger Have overcrowded or impacted teeth Are experiencing jaw popping Are excessively breathing through their mouths Have teeth that aren’t coming together properly Have jaws or teeth too large or small for their face
Orthodontics for Teens
If you are a teenager that needs braces, don’t stress! Braces are nothing to be worried about; in fact, today you have many options for the kind of braces you choose, including metal, clear and Invisalign®! The amount of time you will need to wear your braces depends on your unique situation, and on whether or not you received early treatment, the amount of treatment you need to correct your smile, and how well you take care of your smile while wearing your appliance.
Orthodontics for Adults
At BE Orthodontics, we know that it is never too late to begin orthodontic treatment! Whether you want braces because of a misaligned smile or just because you are self-conscious of your smile, we are here to help. Many adults come to us because of overcrowding or gaps between the teeth, jaw pain, or an incorrect bite. At our practice we offer clear and metal braces as well as Invisalign®, so you can choose the best option for you!
As an adult, your jawbones are not still developing. This does increase the risk of needing orthognathic surgery to correct jaw bone issues. In addition, adult teeth may be worn down or shifted out of place, or you may be experiencing periodontal disease. Our doctors understand the difference between child and adult smiles and treat accordingly!
About Our Office
During your first appointment with us, you or your child will receive a complimentary consultation. At this appointment, one of our doctors will provide a thorough examination of the teeth and mouth to determine the existing orthodontic problems. Then, we will discuss treatment with you, including the time it will take and the cost. You will then be able to decide if you will begin treatment.
If you decide to begin your treatment, we will then make records that will help us determine a plan. These records include medical/dental history, clinical exam, study models of the teeth, photos of your teeth and face, and x-rays. Each treatment plan is customized to your unique needs based on these records, and they also allow us to track your progress during treatment!
Next, we are ready to schedule an appointment for appliance placement! These appointments usually take an hour, and afterwards you will need to visit our office every four to eight weeks for adjustments, which generally take about half an hour. We only take patients with appointments, and we ask that you please come to your appointment on time. If you need to reschedule, please let us know as soon as possible.
The cost of orthodontic care depends on your individual needs and the treatment you receive. During your initial appointments, we will discuss the cost of treatment and the payment plan options you available to you, so that you are always informed and can make a decision that works best for your family Our team is dedicated to working with each patient to create a payment plan that works for their smile and budget and with three payment plans available we’re certain you’ll find one that works for you!
Our staff will work with you and your insurance provider to handle claims and paperwork and make sure you are aware of your insurance benefits.
