Orthodontics FAQs

Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about braces and orthodontic treatments. If you have any questions that aren’t answered here, please contact us today.

Treatment time varies based on the severity of the bite correction, growth during treatment, and patient compliance. Treatment time ranges from 6-36 months, with an average treatment time of 24 months for a typical patient.

The cost of treatment varies based mainly on the severity of the bite correction, how complex the correction is, and how long treatment is projected to be.

We give you a complimentary set of retainers after treatment is finished. The bone holding the teeth are continually changing which allows the teeth to shift. Retainers will keep your teeth stable after treatment, so get used to wearing them for as long as you want your teeth straight (Dr. Han still wears his retainers every night!)

Contrary to popular belief, many studies show that wisdom teeth do not contribute to teeth shifting. We will routinely ask our friendly dentists and surgeons to take the wisdom teeth out but not because we think the teeth will shift. That doesn’t mean that teeth will be stable forever – teeth will shift throughout your life as the bone holding the teeth continually changes.

A board-certified orthodontist is an orthodontist who has voluntarily and successfully passed the certification process administered by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO).

ABO is the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists.

When an orthodontist completes board-certification, they demonstrate a commitment to providing the highest standard of patient care and treatment.

Dr. Han is a board-certified orthodontist who is committed to providing you the highest quality of patient care with the latest technology and most contemporary clinical skills.
