In the spirit of transparent pricing, Orthodontic Specalists will provide any potential patient a general estimate of their fees before an in-office consultation!

If you are eager to learn more about how we design care specifically for each patient, contact us (by phone, text or email) for an in-office consultation. At your initial visit, our doctors will review your complimentary photographs and x-rays, complete a clinical examination, develop treatment options specific to your desires and needs, and direct our treatment coordinators to review fee information and payment options with you.

The investment necessary in any level of orthodontic treatment depends upon multiple factors: the patient’s/family’s desires, the complexity of the case, the patient’s age, the type of appliances chosen by the patient, and the anticipated treatment duration. Below find more information regarding pricing in our offices.

Drs. Michael and Emily Koufos can design a treatment plan specifically for you that best matches your desires.

The first role of an ethical orthodontist is to evaluate your entire dental health and determine the overall best orthodontic options for you.

complete/comprehensive treatment

The goal of this plan is to manage every aspect of the mouth to achieve optimal facial balance, jaw function (TMJs), dental appearance, gum health, and dental health, hence the name “comprehensive.”  Every tooth will be positioned in that effort. 

Improving bite relationships in growing patients offers more choices for correction than in adult patients due to the ability to modify growth with orthodontic treatment.  

After orthodontic treatment is completed, retainers are provided for patients to preserve the outcome of treatment. Retainers work best when worn part-time for as long as you desire to preserve your excellent orthodontic results! Teeth are an adjustable system of our body and are subject to the changes related to our lifestyles and the changes aging imposes upon our bodies.

limited/minor treatment with invisalign

For patients who have an interest in improving only their front teeth alignment, limited treatment is an option. Limited treatment maintains the existing bite relationships while improving the alignment of the front teeth. Limited treatment times can range from a few months to a year.

Whenever possible, limited treatment will be offered as a choice.

On occasion, previous orthodontic patients will inform us their teeth are no longer straight since they stopped wearing their retainers. They are hoping for a simple solution to “touch up” their tooth alignment. Limited treatment is ideal for these patients.

As the years go by . . .

If a person stops wearing retainers, changes to the teeth are inevitable due to lifestyle choices, wear of teeth, and aging.  Increasing crowding of the lower/upper front teeth is common when retainers are discontinued.  The ability to “tune up” the alignment with limited treatment depends on several factors.   To answer this question with accuracy, we will digitally simulate the specific tooth movements for someone to determine if limited treatment can be successful. 

At Orthodontic Specialists, limited treatment is almost exclusively performed with Invisalign appliances.  This technique allows us to control which teeth move and which teeth do not.  In this way, only the problematic teeth and/or a few adjacent teeth are corrected. In contrast, all teeth that have braces on them will move and may complicate the desired correction additionally. 

It is important for the patient and the doctor to share a clear understanding of goals by simulating the outcome generated when only a few teeth are changed.
