Frequently Asked Questions
How much do braces cost?
Treatment costs vary from person to person depending on the length of treatment and treatment needs. Typically speaking, orthodontic treatment in CT is around $5500 - $7500 and we tend to fall somewhere in the middle. During your New Patient Exam, your Treatment Coordinator can go over exactly what the cost of treatment will be so there are no surprises before you begin.
Do I have to pay for everything upfront?
Nope! Unlike other orthodontic practices that require you to pay for your entire treatment upfront, we ask for a down payment that suits your abilities. From there, we can set up a 0% interest payment plan for the duration of your treatment. Need to extend the payment plan out further than your length of treatment? We can do that too for up to 6 months post-treatment and at a very low-interest rate. We never want finances to stand in the way of getting a healthy, confident smile.
Why do you prefer to use Spark Aligners?
Spark Clear Aligners are a top alternative to metal braces. Like Invisalign, Spark Aligners are a series of removable, clear aligners. Unlike Invisalign, Spark Aligners are clearer, more comfortable, and faster working.
How long will I be in treatment?
Treatment times vary from person to person depending on the doctor's recommendations and your needs. Either Dr. Jeff or Dr. Mike will give you specifics at the time of your New Patient Exam. We always do everything we can to give you the smile of your dreams in the most efficient way possible.
What does getting braces feel like?
While the answer to this question can be different from person to person, most people only feel some discomfort for the first week of wearing braces. After that, you may often forget they are even there. That said, anytime your braces feel uncomfortable, give us a call and we will be happy to take a look. Your comfort is extremely important to us!
How quickly can I get started?
You can start as early as the same day of your New Patient Exam. After your exam, if you decide to start right away, we can typically have you leaving the office with either your braces on or a clear aligner scan completed within an hour.
