Frequently Asked Questions

Please see the answers to some of our more frequently asked questions. If your question isn’t answered here, please contact our office and let our orthodontic professionals help.

Am I too old to visit the orthodontist?

Absolutely not! Orthodontic patients vary in age from children and teenagers to patients in their 80s. No matter what age you are, it’s always a good time to visit our office to learn about orthodontic treatment.

How long do I need to wear braces?

 The amount of time spent in braces will vary based on each individual patient. Because each smile responds differently to orthodontic treatments, our orthodontist will be able to provide you with a more accurate timeline after a consultation.

Do braces hurt?

Braces do not often hurt, but you may feel some small discomfort as your teeth get adjusted to your new braces. If you are experiencing pain, speak with our orthodontist right away.
