How Do I Know if I Need Orthodontics?

You might benefit from orthodontic treatment if you experience any of the following:

  • Overbite: Upper teeth that sit too far forward.
  • Spacing: Gaps or spaces between teeth.
  • Underbite: Lower teeth that sit too far forward.
  • Crowding: Overlapping teeth that are hard to floss.
  • Crossbite: A bite that doesn’t mesh comfortably.
  • Pain: Chronic headaches, jaw pain, or upper back and neck pain.

Orthodontic Treatment Options

We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to fit your unique needs and budget. Here are some of the options available:

Traditional Braces

When you think of braces, you might picture bulky metal brackets and wires. However, modern braces have evolved significantly. Today’s dental brackets are smaller, less noticeable, and just as effective as their predecessors. They are easier to clean and much more comfortable, making them a great option for straightening your teeth.

Clear Brackets

For those seeking the benefits of conventional braces with a more discreet appearance, we offer clear brackets. Popular among our adult patients, clear brackets blend seamlessly with your teeth, making them barely noticeable at a quick glance. They provide the effectiveness of traditional orthodontics while maintaining a subtle look.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, have become increasingly popular for their convenience and discretion. These custom-made, transparent trays gradually move your teeth into their ideal positions. Clear aligners fit snugly and precisely, and you can remove them to eat, brush, and floss like normal. They’re also perfect for special occasions like important meetings or dates.

The Cost Of Orthodontic Treatment In Drayton

Orthodontic treatment costs can vary depending on several factors, but with a typical insurance plan, you can expect to pay between $3,000 and $5,000+ out-of-pocket. After an oral exam, we will provide you with an accurate quote, detailing how much your insurance plan will cover and what your actual expenses will be. Without insurance, the cost typically ranges from $4,000 to $6,000+.

How Do We Determine the Cost of Your Orthodontic Treatment?

Several factors influence the cost of orthodontic treatment:

  • Current Oral Health: The condition of your teeth and gums.
  • Extent of Movement Needed: How much your teeth need to shift.
  • Type of Orthodontic Treatment: The specific treatment option you choose.
  • Length of Treatment: The duration of your treatment plan.

Because every smile is unique, the best way to determine the appropriate treatment and its cost is through a consultation. Visit us in Drayton Dental to discuss your options and start your journey to a healthier, more confident smile.

Contact us today

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Orthodontic treatment is ideal for younger patients, typically before most adult teeth have emerged. We recommend bringing your teen in for a consultation. However, it’s never too late—there are effective orthodontic options for adults too!

Braces do not hurt when they are first applied. As your teeth begin to shift, you might feel some discomfort, which most patients describe as annoying rather than painful. If you experience any pain or discomfort, let us know—we have solutions to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.

Avoid food that might damage your braces (like candy apples, caramel, or corn on the cob) or may be difficult to clean out of braces (like caramel, gum and popcorn). You may also want to avoid sugary or acidic foods which will be more difficult than usual to clean off your teeth. Clear braces can become stained by some foods like beets, curry and kraft dinner.

Call us right away! Don’t wait until your next appointment. We’ll schedule a repair to keep your treatment on track.

Use floss threaders or super floss, which are specially designed for flossing with braces or permanent retainers. At your next appointment, we’d be happy to show you how to floss effectively with your braces.

For minor adjustments, orthodontic treatment can be as short as six months. However, most patients will need braces for six months to two years. We can provide a more accurate estimate after an oral exam.

Excellent care! I needed a dentist for an emergency repair to a veneer 2 yrs ago and my dentist had retired. They were super helpful and helped me to get in for appointment quickly to repair and took me on as a patient as well. The staff are all so kind. Rhonda Neabel

As a naturally anxious person, I’ve never done well at the dentist. After a few years of avoidance, I had some major work that needed to be done and the team at Drayton Dental took amazing care of me. Their kindness and professionalism made me feel completely at ease from start to finish and I’m already looking forward to my next cleaning appt with Nicole! Thanks everyone!
