Our Orthodontic Services

Orthodontic treatment is a journey, and it can come in several different forms. Dr. Simon is proud to offer a comprehensive variety of options at our orthodontic office on Skillman Street, so she can help each unique patient or family select the care that best fits their circumstances and priorities. These offerings span from traditional metal braces for all ages to image-friendly Invisalign® aligners (no metal wires or brackets!) to even advanced surgical care, which includes the correction of airway issues that may be causing sleep apnea in children. We hope to welcome you in for a dedicated, one-on-one consultation in the near-future.

How Do I Get Emergency Orthodontic Care?

Anytime you’re experiencing an orthodontic emergency, the first thing you should do is call our office. You can explain your symptoms over the phone, and we’ll provide your next best steps on how to handle the situation until your appointment. If needed, we can pencil you in that very same day to get your treatment back on the right track as soon as possible.

If you’re experiencing a life-threatening emergency, make sure you call 911 right away. You can also head to the nearest hospital and seek medical attention.  

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Orthodontic Work Done?

First things first, you need to identify which factors are most important to you when it comes to orthodontic care. It can help to ask yourself the following questions:

Once you figure that out, you can begin searching for an orthodontist that meets your criteria. It’s a good idea to read up on patient reviews and staff bios to ensure the practice is right for you. Don’t forget to look at custom photos and videos for more insight!

What Is the Difference Between a Dentist and an Orthodontist?

While both dentists and orthodontists specialize in oral healthcare, there’s a notable difference between the two. Dentists diagnose and treat conditions like tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, and many other issues. Additionally, they’re capable of taking dental X-rays, filling cavities, treating gum disease, and prescribing medication to address multiple dental problems.

An orthodontist can perform many of the same tasks as a general dentist, except they’re also specially trained to focus on the alignment of your teeth and jaw. When looking for an “orthodontist near me”, make sure they’re well-qualified to diagnose malocclusion and provide proper treatment.

How Much Does It Cost to Receive Braces?

There is no one-size-fits-all price when it comes to orthodontic treatment. Several factors must be taken into consideration when calculating the overall cost, such as the type of braces you receive and the length of your treatment. Rest assured – we’ll work closely with you to help you better understand how much you can expect to pay for your new smile. Our practice will also review your dental insurance policy to determine your level of coverage and help you sign up for third-party financing if needed.
