Top Questions to Ask Your Orthodontist
Posted on 04/30/2019

Many people put off going to the orthodontist for fear of pain, expense or simply not knowing that their oral problems can be improved. At Dr. Ross Taddeo Orthodontics, we want you to be fully informed about all of our treatments and what outcome you can expect. We’ve prepared answers to some typical orthodontist questions that you may have, and invite you to learn more.

How Do I Know if I Need Braces?

Misaligned teeth can make proper cleaning tough, which may lead to cavities or gum disease. See an orthodontist for any of the following:

  • Crowding: Overlapping teeth; wisdom teeth crowding is a common problem
  • Overbite: Upper teeth protrude well beyond bottom teeth
  • Crossbite: An upper tooth falls behind the lower, opposing tooth
  • Underbite: All upper front teeth fall behind lower front teeth
  • Open bite: When front teeth don’t meet

Some of these conditions can also make it hard to chew and speak clearly. Take action to keep your mouth healthy.

Do Braces Hurt?

While there is minimal pain in applying braces, you should expect some pressure and discomfort when after applying braces and at each adjustment. Most people find that the discomfort is easily managed with over-the-counter or topical medication until it subsides after a few days.

Are Braces Expensive?

Are you worried about braces and Invisalign cost? We offer no-interest, in-office financing and other payment options to help make treatment more affordable. Depending on your needs, choice of braces and length of treatment, you may be quoted anywhere between a few thousand and several thousand dollars. That cost usually covers the application of braces, as well as in-office visits for adjustments during treatment, which may be as long as two years.
