Orthodontics

If you feel self-conscious or have jaw pain due to misaligned, crooked teeth, orthodontic treatments may be right for you.

By shifting your teeth into alignment, orthodontics can straighten your smile and improve oral health over the course of about 18 months.

I have been going to Sandcreek Dental for years now. They have cared for our family for years-both my brother and myself have gotten our braces from them. We love that we can visit one office for our orthodontist and our dentist. Tina, and Mark are great and always take care of anything we need.

How Long Does the Procedure Take? Is It Worth It?

18 to 24 Months

You should plan on making a commitment of at least 18 to 24 months to straighten your smile, in addition to after-treatment maintenance with retainers. However, the actual procedure length can be shorter or longer depending on your individual alignment goals.

Totally Worth It

Dr. Tall believes that the personal investment his patients in Idaho Falls make in orthodontic treatments is totally worth it. Why? Because a straight, properly functioning smile can improve your health and your self-confidence.

The Orthodontics Timeline

Orthodontic Treatment

Planning

Dr. Tall and his experienced staff will perform a comprehensive oral exam at his office in Idaho Falls. This typically involves taking digital x-rays, 3-D jaw imaging, and precise impressions. With this information, you or your child's customized orthodontic device and treatment plan can be created.

Orthodontic Placement

Dr. Tall will bond the orthodontic aligners to the teeth. You'll come back to his comfortable office for occasional check-ups and adjustment. 

Completion

When Dr. Tall has determined that your dental goals have been reached, your aligners will be removed. More x-rays, impressions, and 3-D images will be taken to make sure no decay or damage occurred during treatment.

Retainers

Dr. Tall recommends wearing retainers after treatment is done so your misalignment does not gradually reoccur over time. This will be discussed prior to aligner removal.

Costs and Insurance Coverage

We're sure you know that braces, whether for an adult or a child, can be an expensive, but necessary, investment. Insurance coverage is different from plan to plan, so what might be covered for a child under 18 may not be covered for an adult. Our trained, knowledgeable Sandcreek Dental staff can help you with your financial and insurance questions. Dr. Tall proudly offers CareCredit® financing to assist patients with out-of-pocket expenses.
