We know you have questions. Check out our FAQs to put your mind at ease.

There’s not a “one size fits all” for orthodontic treatment. Depending on the scope, severity, length, and appliance of your treatment, fees may range. Our orthodontic office offers low down and monthly payments to help our community achieve the smile of their dreams.

To get more information on the anticipated fee of your treatment, talk to our treatment coordinator at your free consultation.

According to The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), it is recommended that children get looked at by an orthodontist no later than age 7. Although it is unlikely that your child will begin treatment that young, this gives our orthodontist time to map a course of treatment for best results. Early treatment helps our orthodontist guide jaw growth and catch problems early.

On average, orthodontic treatment lasts around 22 months, but this timeline isn’t guaranteed. Depending on the severity of your case and the orthodontic appliance used, treatment could go longer or be shorter than 22 months. Talk to your orthodontist at your consultation to get an approximate timeline of treatment.

At Precision Orthodontics we offer several different high-tech treatment options for you to choose from! Our treatment options include traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligners from ClearCorrect and Invisalign. There are different benefits to each option.

Fortunately, a loose wire can be fixed at home until you are able to see your orthodontist to fix it. Simply try poking the wire back in place with the tip of an eraser. If it is still uncomfortable, place orthodontic wax over it and call the office to make an appointment to fix the issue.

Absolutely not! You will be able to go through your normal routine with little adjustments. It is recommended that you wear a mouthguard while playing sports in order to prevent any injuries.

Yes! There is no age limit to receiving orthodontic treatment. According to The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), about 20% of orthodontic patients are adults. Most adult patients choose Invisalign, but traditional metal and ceramic braces are great options as well!
