What To Expect During Your Initial Exam

Your first visit to our office is the very beginning of your orthodontic journey, and we’re just as excited as you! This will be a chance for us to get to know you, your current orthodontic situation, and your goals in orthodontic treatment.

Generally, the first visit will take about 45 minutes, although we’ll always leave time for extra questions if necessary. During this time, we’ll perform a thorough examination of your teeth, mouth, and gums, checking for any orthodontic problems that may be present. We’ll also take complimentary photographs, x-rays, or other measurements of your mouth. Please be sure to remove any jewerly from the neck up, as this helps us complete the most accurate exam possible. Based on your initial exam, SmileLife Orthodontics will provide a preliminary diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

You will be asked at the initial phone call, if you have orthodontic insurance. If you can provide us with this information, we can also calculate your estimated orthodontic benefits during the course of your first visit, helping you better understand what the costs of treatment will look like.


Common Questions We Will Discuss

Your first appointment is a time for you to get as much information as possible about treatment, so we encourage you to ask any questions you may have. We’ll review over the following points during the appointment:

  • Is there a condition that can be treated effectively with orthodontic care?
  • Should we start treatment now or wait until later?
  • What treatment options will I be able to choose from?
  • Do I need to have any permanent teeth removed?
  • How long will I be in treatment?
  • How much will treatment cost?
  • What are my payment options? What does my insurance cover?

Are you moving to the area for school or military duty? Are you planning on moving in the next year so you are hesitant about starting treatment? You can find a lot of information on our website, but you can always call our office with any questions before scheduling your first appointment.


How Much Do Braces Cost?

After reviewing the results of the initial X-rays and photos, our highly trained and skilled orthodontist, assisted by our treatment coordinator, will explain your dental malocclusion, collaborate as an orthodontics “team” to determine the best treatment plan and options for your specific situation then review it in full detail with you.  Our treatment coordinator will also discuss your insurance benefits and present you with an estimate of costs.

Although every orthodontics case is different, we’re proud of our ability to provide affordable, high-quality care to all our patients and we offer financing almost anyone can afford.

Depending on your insurance, your out-of-pocket expenses may be even less.  Our essential braces treatment cost does not include tax or special appliances.  There may be additional charges in cases requiring surgery or involving other special circumstances.

SmileLife Orthodontics understand the cost of orthodontic treatment is a significant and necessary investment for many people. To help make Orthodontics and Braces financially available to everyone who walks in our door,  SmileLife Orthodontics offers different payment options that are flexible and affordable.  The majority of our patients, just like you, are taking advantage of this excellent financing flexibility every day!

Juanita T.Google Review

Everyone was very friendly and gave more than one option for braces and payments. My son was very nervous about getting braces but Amanda had him smiling the whole time we were there and it helped him relax. She explained what she was going to do before doing it. I am so happy I decided to take my son here.
