Am I too old for braces?

The simple answer is no! While you may be used to seeing braces on teenagers, there’s no reason why you can’t get braces as an adult. The fact is, our teeth continue to shift over time, so even if you didn’t need orthodontics when you were younger, it’s possible you may benefit from it now. It’s also possible that you wore braces in the past but now your teeth have shifted and you might want to correct their positions to get back to a beautifully straight smile.

How long do braces take?

The length of treatment with braces varies between patient to patient since every case is unique. Those who have more severe teeth misalignment will understandably need to wear braces for a longer time to get their teeth into their perfect positions. Generally speaking, however, the average treatment time is one to two years.

How much do braces cost?

We’d love to give you an exact answer here, but once again, the number varies. First off, it depends on what type of braces you’re getting. For example, the cost can differ between traditional metal braces and ceramic braces. It also depends on whether you have dental insurance and if your plan covers orthodontic treatment. Some insurance plans cover teeth straightening procedures if it’s determined there is a medical need.

To get an accurate cost estimate, we invite you to come in for an orthodontic exam at one of our practices in Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, or Hayden.

Braces VS. Clear Aligners

Overcrowded, unevenly spaced, and misaligned teeth are only a few things orthodontic treatment with braces or clear aligners can correct. When comparing braces and clear aligners, similarities are abundant. One main difference is the visibility of the orthodontic appliances. Braces traditionally have been associated with bulky brackets, but with modern advancements, even traditional braces are now sleek and comfortable for effective alignment. Clear aligners are sleek, comfortable, and virtually invisible but require slightly more responsibility as they are removable without the help of a dental professional. Our team at Riverstone Dental Care is here to help you decide between braces and clear aligners!
