Here to Answer Your Questions

  • Why see an orthodontist for braces?
    Orthodontic treatment is a professional, medical service that should be directed and supervised by a licensed orthodontist. There are many risks associated with direct-to-consumer products. If the procedure or treatment is not done correctly, it could lead to extensive damage that may be irreversible. Orthodontists have the proper training, experience and credentials to ensure that patients receive the best medical care and the best smile.
  • What is an orthodontist?
    Orthodontists are dental specialists whose sole focus is to align the teeth and jaws. Through intensive dental school and orthodontic school training, orthodontists are equipped to diagnose, prevent, correct and treat dental and facial irregularities in patients of all ages.
  • What is the appropriate age for braces?
    The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive an orthodontic check up around age 7. During this developmental stage, most children have a mix of permanent and baby teeth, which allows orthodontists to evaluate how the face and jaws are growing and to identify existing or developing problems that may require treatment.
  • When Should I Consult an Orthodontist?
    Orthodontic treatment is a long-term solution for many functional and cosmetic dental issues. If you have an overbite, underbite, jaw pain, chewing difficulties, gaps, overcrowding or other common dental concerns, it may be time to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist.
  • Are Braces Affordable?
    At Bates Orthodontics, we offer flexible financing through OrthoFi. This convenient resource allows patients to design payment plans that fit their overall lifestyle and budget.
