Owens Orthodontics’ experts — Dr. Mark Owens and Dr. Newsom Baker — work with patients of all ages to develop unique treatment plans to resolve various alignment issues. Our team will work with you closely to determine the best approach for your situation.
For children, our orthodontists assess each situation over time to see how growth changes their mouths before determining if braces are necessary. We’ll apply the appropriate treatment and provide all the information you need for effective at-home care.
Your treatment will start with a consultation appointment, where our orthodontists will assess your smile and determine your treatment needs. We’ll then schedule a time to install your braces. Most patients wear their braces for 18 to 24 months. Some patients may require additional rubber bands or headgear, depending on the situation.
You’ll come back to the office every few weeks so we can check your progress and tighten your archwires if necessary. You’ll receive a retainer to wear after removing your braces for lasting results.
Traditional braces are one of the most affordable teeth alignment methods. The total cost of your metal braces will vary based on your treatment plan and the amount of time you need to wear the braces. Your insurance may help to cover the cost in some instances.
