Smile for Life with Dr. Petrous


What’s the Right Age for Orthodontic Treatment?

The right age can be any age. Early examination in our office allows us to determine when your child should be treated for maximum improvement – in the least amount of time and at the lowest cost. Certain treatment techniques provide significant benefits for patients between 7 to 11 years old. Treatment during these growth stages can achieve results not possible once the face and the jawbones have finished growing. Full orthodontic treatment with braces generally starts after all the permanent teeth are in place, usually at ages 12 or 13.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Dr. Petrous understands the commitment required for anyone considering orthodontic treatment. Invisalign costs are comparable to the cost of traditional braces. However, only Dr. Petrous can determine the final cost of invisalign for your situation. Factors that impact cost can include treatment goals, how long treatment may last, and the difficulty of your specific orthodontic case. Also, it’s worth it to check with your dental insurance — a portion of your treatment may be covered by your dental health plan.

Does Orthodontic Treatment Hurt?

Orthodontic treatment quality and comfort have improved significantly over the years. For the first 3-4 days, braces may leave you a bit sore, but they shouldn’t be painful. Whatever soreness you experience can be relieved with simple over the counter pain relievers. Today’s orthodontic tools are smaller, more precise, and more comfortable thanks to technological improvements. Petrous Orthodontics uses the latest in braces technology and materials to provide the best treatment possible.
