  • Will my child need braces again when they're older? Will my insurance cover a second treatment?

    It’s possible, though not always necessary, for some children to need orthodontic treatment later in life, especially if they experience changes in their dental structure or if not all issues were fully addressed initially.

    As for insurance coverage for a second treatment, it varies by policy. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to understand your coverage. At Westhill Dental, we offer various external financing options to make treatment accessible.

  • Will my child have braces the entire time or will there be a period where we wait for adult teeth to come in?

    Orthodontic treatment is highly individualized. In some cases, treatment is phased, with an initial phase to address specific issues and a waiting period before a second phase to correct alignment after all adult teeth have erupted. Our goal is to ensure effective treatment while minimizing the time your child needs to wear braces.

  • How do I take care of my braces?

    Taking care of metal braces involves certain actions to ensure they function properly. This includes proper cleaning and maintenance to prevent damage or discomfort. Ways you should care for your braces include:

    • Regular brushing and flossing to remove food particles and plaque.
    • Avoiding hard, sticky, or chewy foods that can damage braces.
    • Attending all scheduled orthodontic appointments for adjustments and progress checks.
    • Using protective gear during sports to prevent damage to the braces.

    Our team at Westhill Dental will provide detailed instructions and support throughout the treatment process.

  • How long does treatment last?

    The duration of orthodontic treatment with metal braces varies, typically ranging from 18 months to 3 years. The exact time depends on the complexity of the dental issues being corrected and how well the treatment plan is followed, including maintaining good oral hygiene and attending regular appointments. Rest assured, we strive to achieve the best results in the shortest possible time, keeping you informed of your child’s progress every step of the way.
