When do I need to see an orthodontist?

Adults can see an orthodontist any time they want to straighten their teeth. A child’s dentist may recommend seeing an orthodontist after permanent teeth have erupted, especially if he or she has noticed any misalignment. This is generally when children are between seven and 10 years old.

Should I still go to the dentist after I get orthodontic treatment?

Yes, you should continue seeing your dentist every six months for routine checkups and cleanings.

What is an initial visit like?

On your first visit to our office, our friendly staff will greet you, and you’ll be able to speak with the orthodontist Dr. Namay. The orthodontist will perform an examination to identify any issues and determine a treatment plan. Depending on your needs and the plan you choose, you may be able to start treatment the same day as your appointment.

Can I get braces if I have a metal allergy?

Yes, we make braces with multiple different types of metal including stainless steel, nickel titanium, full titanium or gold-plated stainless steels. If these options don’t work for you, we have other options available such as clear braces made of ceramic or Invisalign® aligners made of BPA-free polyurethane resin.
