Orthodontist Harwood Heights

Orthodontic Experts consist of professional orthodontists who never compromise on the oral health of patients. They are all board-certified having years of training and experience to shape the best-looking smiles on each patient’s face.

The braces our clinic uses are fixed and removable. The suitability of the application of these braces is better guided by the orthodontist after the initial check-up of the patient.

The braces cost is the most irritating aspect that brings a barrier to the treatment process. To cope with this, the orthodontist in Harwood Heights accepts many discounts and payment plans that reduce the overall treatment cost.

A little irritation is caused in the mouth on the first day as the braces are totally new to our mouth environment.

The average time is based on the circumstances of the patient’s teeth and their need for crowded teeth correction.

This is determined by the case correction for severe overbites, it takes a longer time. On the other hand, for minor overbites, the clear aligners works fastly.

Following the doctor’s precaution plan helps the braces process to speed up including; Avoid restricted food with braces, carrying your braces care kit with you, in case of an emergency visiting your orthodontist is best, and most importantly maintain your daily hygiene routine properly with braces.

Not at all! The first visit is simply the consultation visit, where the orthodontist fully examines the patient’s teeth situation and checks the future problems to further suggest the possible treatment.

At Orthodontic Experts, the metal braces cost on average is $4,000-$6,000, clear aligners is $2,900-$7,000, and the Iconix braces on average are $4,500-$6,500.
