Not at GO Orthodontics! We provide different types of braces, including traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, Iconix™ gold braces, and Invisalign for kids, teens and adults

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.

Orthodontic treatment is completely personalized with us! No cookie cutters here. 

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

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 and your wallet happy.

We also offer discounts 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!

Just like the cost of braces, the cost of Invisalign will be based on your custom financial plan that we create at your first visit!

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 82 years young! You have the option of braces or Invisalign at any age. 

This is why we perform a complimentary exam! During your free orthodontic exam with one of our orthodontists, 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

 

Toward the end of your treatment, once your teeth have shifted into the desired position and you enter the retention phase, your teeth will stabilize and stop wiggling. 

If any of your teeth are wiggling considerably and it concerns you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us! We want to calm your fears and ensure that you’re working toward the best possible results from your treatment.
