You deserve high-quality treatment options that help you feel confident throughout your transformation.

The AAO advises that children receive their first orthodontic screening by age 7. Early screenings are crucial for detecting problematic orthodontic conditions before they progress. 

Through early detection and early intervention of orthodontic problems, we can effectively minimize the need for future treatment. Conditions that are left untreated can be more challenging to correct in the adult years and may require a more complex treatment, like corrective jaw surgery. 

Early orthodontic screenings enable our experienced orthodontists to intervene with problematic conditions and take the necessary steps to establish a healthy foundation for a beautiful set of permanent teeth to grow.

There is no fixed cost of braces; the cost of treatment will depend on the length of your treatment period and the type of treatment you choose.

We’re proud to offer modern braces options and personalized treatment plans at an affordable price. Our team will work with you to create a custom financial plan that makes you happy!

We also offer a family discount and accept almost all insurance plans to help you manage the cost of braces. We’re here to help you achieve the smile of your dreams in any way that we can!

Yes! Dental cleanings are still extremely important. We want to ensure that your teeth and gums are clean and healthy throughout your treatment. Visit your dentist for professional cleanings every 6 months or however often your dentist advises.

We’re happy to coordinate with your dentist on any needs throughout your treatment as well!

No matter your age, you’re never too old to achieve the smile you’ve wanted your whole life. We treat adults who are 90 years young! You have the option of braces or Invisalign at any age.

This is why we perform a complimentary exam! During your complimentary orthodontic exam with Dr. Morejón or Dr. Andrews, we’ll thoroughly assess your condition (including complimentary X-rays and diagnostic photos) and discuss any orthodontic-related symptoms you may be experiencing. Through this assessment, we can determine whether you need orthodontic treatment.

In the meanwhile, here are some signs you can look out for to determine whether you need treatment:

  • You have crowding or spacing
  • You’re not confident in your smile
  • You have difficulty breathing, or you mouth-breathe often
  • You have difficulty sleeping
  • You feel pain when opening or closing your mouth
  • Your jaw pops or clicks when opening your mouth
  • Your teeth overlap
  • Your top teeth overlap your bottom teeth
  • Your bottom teeth overlap your top teeth
  • You experience persistent soreness in your teeth or gums
