  2. Attend your appointment: When you arrive, we’ll quickly get to work; after examining your situation, we’ll determine if it’s an orthodontic emergency or something that needs to be handled by a general dentist (such as a broken tooth or infection).
  3. Get the care you need: The majority of orthodontic emergencies can be handled quickly during your appointment. You may need to come back for a follow-up appointment if new parts were ordered, such as a new aligner.

Simply put, orthodontic emergencies can vary greatly from patient to patient, meaning that we won’t be able to give you a precise cost estimate for your treatment until we’ve inspected your situation.

That said, we’ll always provide you with an estimate before we begin any treatment so that there aren’t any surprises when it’s time to pay your bill. We’re also more than happy to discuss your insurance coverage with you, as well as possible financing options, so that you’re minimizing your out-of-pocket expenses wherever you can.
