We at BracesPlus near Waxhaw, NC understand that our patients will have questions about their orthodontic treatment. And top orthodontist, Dr. Richard Graham, loves taking the time to address each of our patient’s questions and concerns about the treatments we offer and their results. For our current and future patients, here are some of the most frequent questions we get asked:

Q: What kinds of treatment options do you offer?

DR. RICHARD GRAHAM: Your consultation is the best time to ask which treatment options are available to you, that will ensure the best outcome for your individual needs. Some of your options here at BracesPlus include: traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, and alternative treatments like Invisalign clear aligners.

Q: What is Invisalign?

RG: Invisalign, made of a clear thermoplastic material, is the alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is customized for each patient’s specific needs and treatment goals, and when worn, the aligners exert a gentle pressure on the teeth to help orient them to a new, more effective, and attractive position.

Q: What kind of preparation is needed?

RG: It’s always a good idea to ask questions like these to ensure that you’re comfortable with undergoing orthodontic treatment, and to ensure that it fits into your schedule and budget. For example, you may find that you may need to make a few changes to your daily routine to have a faster, more successful treatment outcome. Also, during your consultation we will discuss with you any recommended diet so that you’ll be prepared and ready by the time your orthodontic treatment begins.

Q: Should I expect any pain while undergoing orthodontic treatment?

RG: This is a common concern for many patients, and a lot of people who could readily benefit from orthodontic treatment shy away from the idea because they fear it might be a painful process. At your consultation we will explain exactly what to expect and how to treat any discomfort you may experience.

Q: What is the Cost?

RG: Cost varies due to the process of the type of appliance, fitting and installing the appliance, the cost of materials, length of treatment, and our office fees. Many of our patients choose alternative options like Invisalign because the span of treatment can be shorter.
