When should a child first visit an orthodontist?
Dr. Brandon, along with the American Association of Orthodontists recommend a child have his or her first visit at the age of 7. This allows for your doctor to ensure no problems are being created or step in and rectify any existing problems before they worsen.
Do I need a referral from my dentist before visiting with Dr. Brandon?
No! While your dentist may refer you to an orthodontist, most patients are self referred and schedule an appointment with us themselves.
Can treatment begin while a patient still has baby teeth?
Yes! Sometimes it is necessary to begin treatment while a child still has baby teeth. Call us today to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Brandon to see if early intervention is needed.
How much will treatment cost?
Orthodontic treatment can vary so much and takes many things in to account. To get a proper estimate, please visit us where we can do a proper examination and create a treatment plan for you or your child.
How long is treatment?
Treatment varies depending on the severity of the issue(s) but usually ranges anywhere from a few months to a few years. A proper timeline will be given to you upon your initial examination with Dr. Brandon.
As an adult is it too late for me to seek treatment?
There is a common misconception that orthodontic treatment is only for children and teens. However, that is not the case. Dr. Brandon treats adults helping them get the smile they have always wanted!
