Do braces hurt?

No, braces do not hurt! Typically, the teeth are most uncomfortable 12-24 hours after an orthodontic adjustment, but this discomfort will disappear within 3 to 5 days. 

During this time, you can use orthodontic wax to cover any brackets or wires, as well as Orajel® numbing gel for greater comfort. Before long, you’ll forget what it was like before you had braces! Braces become unnoticeable relatively quickly.

How long will I need braces or Invisalign?

On average, adult orthodontics may be completed within 15-18 months. It’s important to note that your treatment may be shorter or longer than average, depending on your unique case.

During your complimentary consultation, your experienced orthodontist will give you an estimated length of treatment.

Cost of Adult Braces

There is no one-size-fits-all cost with orthodontic treatment. Your costs will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of the problem, the complexity of the correction, the appliances used, and the length of time needed to correct your condition.
