Options For Every Budget

We understand that braces are a big investment. That’s why we offer a variety of flexible solutions to help you finance treatment on your terms.

The Benefits of Braces

Affordable Treatment

Braces tend to be the most affordable way to straighten your teeth and improve your bite. They also are covered by some dental insurance plans, especially for children under the age of 18.

Extremely Versatile

Braces are more versatile and powerful than alternatives. With the right treatment plan, an experienced orthodontist can correct almost any issue with your teeth and bite.

Prevents Further Oral Health Problems

Misaligned or crooked teeth are harder to clean, which can raise the risk of gum disease or tooth decay. They also may wear down more quickly, and could be more prone to chipping, cracking, or breaking. Misaligned teeth can contribute to problems like tooth grinding and TMJ/TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder). With braces, you can treat and prevent these problems.

The Braces Treatment Process

Orthodontic Consultation & Braces Placement

To begin your treatment, you’ll come to our office for an orthodontic consultation, and your doctor will discuss all of your options for treatment. If they decide on braces, you’ll come back in a few weeks to have your braces placed. This is a completely non-invasive procedure that takes 1-2 hours.

Adjustments & Checkups

Once your braces are attached to your teeth, you’ll need to come back into our office for an adjustment. These are usually done every 6 weeks, and take about half an hour. During this appointment, your orthodontist will check on your progress, then tighten your braces to make sure your teeth keep moving toward the proper position.

Braces Removal & Retainers

Most patients wear braces for about 12 - 24 months. Once your treatment is over, your orthodontist will remove your braces. Then, they will make a set of retainers for your teeth. Retainers help your teeth maintain the proper position after your braces are removed. You’ll wear these at night to make sure your teeth don’t move back to the original position.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

How do braces work?

Blanchard Orthodontics | plus icon

Braces work by applying gradual pressure on the teeth, slowly moving them into the desired alignment. The jaw bone adapts as the braces apply pressure over time, which allows the teeth and their roots to adjust. While all cases are unique, it can take anywhere from six months to two years to correct your smile with braces.

What are the benefits of traditional metal braces?

As a tried and true method, braces are one of the most reliable ways to straighten teeth. Individuals dealing with minor to severe orthodontic issues can benefit from their effectiveness. Unlike clear aligners, you don’t have to worry about removing or losing your braces, setting your smile up for success. This is particularly useful for younger children or those who simply want a hassle-free solution to removable clear aligners.

How do you care for your braces?

Caring for your braces is similar to regular oral healthcare. Make sure to use a soft-bristled brush to keep your teeth, brackets, and wires clean and free from debris. Your orthodontist may provide you with a V-shaped toothbrush to ensure efficient brushing in between brackets. Don’t forget to floss! Stiff-tipped floss picks are perfect for removing food lodged in spots that may be tough to reach. Visit your orthodontist for regular follow-ups to ensure your teeth are adjusting properly and you’ll be braces-free in no time.

Am I a good candidate for braces?

Metal braces are an excellent solution to a number of orthodontic issues. If your teeth are crowded, overlapped, gapped, or crooked, metal braces can restore your smile and shift your teeth back where they belong. Patients struggling with an overbite, crossbite, overjet, or open bite may also be great candidates for metal braces.

How much do braces cost?

Blanchard Orthodontics | plus icon

The cost of metal braces is different for each patient. Factors that may affect the cost of your metal braces include the severity of your teeth misalignment, appointment and visits, insurance type, and more. The best way to find out how much you’ll pay for metal braces is to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist.
