If you’ve been thinking about starting orthodontic treatment, there are a few things you should know before you schedule your first appointment.

You’ll Want to Come in for a Consultation from an Orthodontic Specialist

At Star Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry, we offer a free consultation to help answer any questions that you have and to cover the treatment options with you. During the consultation, you will be able to meet our incredible team, see our amazing office, and explore the best options for you. This initial consultation sets the tone for what you can expect during your treatment.

The Treatment is Customized to You

Treatment will depend on you and your individual needs. When you come to our office for a consultation, Dr. Davis will be able to give you an idea of how long your treatment will last, as well as what your treatment will entail. Your consultation will help us provide you with the quality treatment you desire to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

There are Different Options

With a clear idea of your budget in mind, you’ll have the opportunity to select the treatment plan that would be the most ideal for you. There are different orthodontics treatments that can be selected, including Invisalign or braces. Invisalign is the revolutionary, nearly invisible, alternative to braces. We will let you know if Invisalign or braces is a better option for you.

Some Discomfort Can Occur

Throughout your orthodontic treatment, your teeth will be moving and shifting, this means mild discomfort can occur. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the discomfort, including eating softer foods such as: soft fruits, yogurt, steamed vegetables, applesauce, tender meats, etc. Second, you can take over-the-counter medications to help lessen the mild discomfort such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. The mild discomfort usually goes away after a few days.
