Dental braces are designed to correct a number of common issues with the alignment or spacing of teeth, gradually guiding them into a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing position. Most braces are made from metal brackets fused to your teeth and connected with thin wires and small rubber bands. Over time, these wires will be tightened to shift your teeth until they’ve reached their optimal position. With proper follow-up care, your teeth should remain in their new and improved positions for decades to come.
WHEN DO I NEED BRACES?
You may be a good candidate for braces if your teeth are too close together to allow you to comfortably floss, overlap each other, or don’t align well when your jaw is clenched. Even if the aesthetics of your teeth don’t bother you, untreated malocclusion (or imperfect alignment with a closed jaw) can affect the way your teeth wear and cause you to suffer jaw pain or headaches.
The longer you wait to have orthodontic treatment, the longer you’ll likely need to wear them (and the more frequently they may need to be adjusted), making time of the essence when it comes to seeking braces.

HOW MUCH DO BRACES COST?
Because braces are highly individualized — being custom-fitted to every patient’s mouth — it can be just about impossible to quote an accurate price without an in-person examination. Fortunately, the cost of this treatment is generally covered by insurance. Even if the cost of your braces ends up exceeding your insurance coverage, you’ll be able to work with our treatment coordinators to find the best possible prices for you.
HOW CAN YOU PAY FOR YOUR BRACES?
Our flexible payment plans and helpful staff can make financing your braces a simple and painless process. From third-party financing to in-house payment plans, we can help you find a way to pay for your treatment, even if you don’t have dental insurance or have already exhausted your coverage for the year.
