Understanding Your Orthodontic Treatment

We know every patient has various thoughts about getting orthodontic work—from fears to the dentist, to worry about cost, to hesitancy about daily life with an orthodontic appliance. As your expert Minneapolis, MN orthodontist, we are here to answer any questions you have about financial cost and your individualized orthodontic treatment plan. Whether you’re in need of early treatment for your family or adult treatment for yourself, we offer a variety of surgical, retention, braces, and Invisalign options to fit your needs. Our office is here to guide you through your treatment, and help you learn more about the appliances that are available, and the benefits of straightening your teeth.

Benefits of Orthodontic Work

Adjusting your teeth can certainly make your smile look healthier and more attractive. But beyond aesthetics and improved self-confidence, orthodontic treatment can offer a number of important oral health benefits. Your doctor may recommend an adjustment to improve oral health and avoid common orthodontic problems, ensuring you have enough room for your regular oral hygiene routine and keep your teeth healthy.

Alternatives to Traditional Orthodontic Appliances

Traditional metal braces can help you improve teeth alignment, but we offer a lot more discreet options like clear braces and Invisalign. These options are popular among teens and adults, as they are virtually invisible and clear aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning, making them much easier to manage compared to traditional alternatives.

Maintenance Between Treatments

We want our patients to understand all the smile improvement options available to them. Once you decide to begin your orthodontic treatment journey, visits to the orthodontist office to adjust braces or pick up new aligners will be scheduled about every 6 to 10 weeks, depending on your individual case, and your orthodontist will evaluate your treatment progress and the health of your teeth and gums at each visit. We also want to encourage patients to keep up with regular dental checkup appointments, avoid damaging foods, and stay dedicated to a regular oral hygiene routine in order to keep your teeth healthy and to avoid common problems or emergencies between visits.
