Congratulations on taking the first step towards a healthier, brighter smile! Dr. Beckstrom will create a braces treatment specifically designed for you!
When should I see an orthodontist?2017-07-21T21:17:21+00:00

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends a check-up with an orthodontist no later than age 7. Many patients won’t need treatment at this age, but certain issues are more easily treated if addressed early. Our adult patients should also schedule a free consultation to take a look at the options available to them. There is no age limit to achieving a beautiful smile!

What can I expect on my first visit?2017-08-07T19:14:37+00:00

At your free consultation, Dr. Beckstrom provides you with an x-ray and a complete examination. He will then discuss any recommended treatment. Our treatment coordinator will then go over all payment, finance and insurance options with you.

Are adult braces different than teen braces?2017-07-21T20:55:46+00:00

Adult braces work the same way that teen braces do. However, because an adult’s mouth is not growing, the process may take longer than it would for teens.

How do braces work?2017-07-21T20:57:56+00:00

Braces work by applying small amounts of pressure to slowly move your teeth. An arched wire also puts pressure on the brackets and teeth as it moves back to its original shape.

What do braces look like?2017-07-21T21:07:39+00:00

Braces are smaller and lighter than ever before and we offer either a metal or clear bracket option.

Will I need a retainer?2017-07-21T21:18:57+00:00

Yes. A retainer will keep your teeth straight after your treatment is over. It is very important to wear your retainer as instructed so your teeth don’t move out of place.

Will my insurance cover braces?2017-08-07T19:57:28+00:00

Please provide us with your insurance information at your free consultation and we will answer any questions you may have about cost and your orthodontic coverage.
