How Do I Get Braces?

Step by step instructions.


You're convinced braces are right for you. Now you need to know the steps to get braces.

Your time is valuable. We keep things simple. We keep treatment efficient.

Have you had a dental check-up in the last 6 months?

It's best practice to make sure you don't need any dental work before starting orthodontic treatment. Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is important before, during and after braces. Don't worry if you're overdue we'll give you time between your exam and your bonding appointment to get current.

No referral is necessary.

Referrals from your family dentist are not required for an orthodontic evaluation or to utilize dental insurance benefits.

Digital Records.

We limit our initial exam records to digital photographs and panoramic x-ray. Doctor will order a 3D cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) if concerned with airway or the position of an impacted tooth. Digital impressions and cephalometric x-rays are taken on all patients after acceptance of the treatment plan. No goopy impressions for dental study models!

Start Same Day.

After the doctor reviews the records a treatment plan will be presented. If the teeth look good then we can get you started by putting braces on the same day.

Your smile is one of the first things people notice when meeting you. A smile is a big part of making a first impression. A smiling face tells people that you’re positive, outgoing and worth getting to know.

Emotions are contagious. When you smile your brain releases endorphins and serotonin which improves mood and relieves stress. Smiling makes you feel better inside and appear more attractive to others.
