Your first visit is just
the beginning. Get excited!

We love meeting new people – especially new patients. That’s why we’ve created a fun office environment that feels like your smile’s home away from home. A place where you feel like a VIP the moment you walk through our doors. It’s also why all of our new-patient consultations are 100% complimentary. Meaning it’s absolutely free. See? We thought you’d like the sound of that. In addition, during this initial consultation, we’ll examine your smile, listen to your smile concerns and goals, and walk you through your different treatment options. Then, when you decide on a treatment plan, we’ll work with you to make sure your wallet will love the plan as much as your smile will. This entire visit takes about 1 hour.

Customized treatment plans. Affordable payment plans. Two plans that’ll make you smile.

Treatment costs can vary widely, depending on the patient and the case. All treatment plans are customized for each individual and associated costs depend on the severity of necessary treatment. Specified treatment costs will be discussed at your initial consultation.

We make getting a great smile affordable.

Before beginning your treatment, we’ll discuss treatment fees, insurance coverage, and financial arrangements in full detail. In addition, to help make getting treatment more affordable, we’re proud to offer several different payment options, including zero-interest financing. Plus, we also offer a discount for those wishing to pay in full at the start of treatment.

With insurance, we’ve got you covered.

To make things easier, we not only accept most major insurance companies but we also provide each patient with a complimentary benefits check at your initial consultation. This helps us determine your orthodontic coverage so that the cost of treatment won’t be as expensive.

At what age should orthodontic treatment begin?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child first visit an orthodontist by the age of seven. Many orthodontic problems can be solved more easily at a younger age, before jaw growth slows, to avoid the need for more complicated procedures. That being said, treatment can be sought out at any age, and there are many attractive treatment options available to adults today that ensure an efficient, aesthetic, and comfortable orthodontic experience.

How long does orthodontic treatment take and how frequent are appointments?

Treatment duration is dependent on the severity of the case and the compliance of the patient. A patient who maintains good oral hygiene, keeps appointments, and follows instructions throughout treatment will complete their treatment on or ahead of schedule. Dr. Sellers is proud to reveal that our typical cases are roughly 8-12 months shorter than the national average of 29 months.

We average 3-6 weeks between visits, though it depends on the case and treatment plan. At the beginning of treatment, we usually start seeing patients every 4-6 weeks, some we wind down to 2-3 weeks. As we get closer to finishing your treatment, appointments become more frequent. When we factor all visits together, we average about 4 weeks between appointments.

Is orthodontic treatment painful?

It is 100% less painful because we don’t do tightening appointments anymore.

How will my life be affected by Invisalign?

The quick answer is that your daily life will be basically unaffected by Invisalign. The clear, light material of the aligners ensures that they are virtually unnoticeable. And since the aligners are removable, you can eat and drink whatever you want! That being said, you will need to wear your aligners for 20 hours a day, so you should only remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing.

What if I have already had braces?

Teeth can shift with age, and it is a very common occurrence. Retainer wear is much different today than it was many years ago. Both Invisalign and Damon Brackets are excellent treatment options for adults. We now know that retainers are life-long and worn indefinitely.

How often will I need to see my Invisalign orthodontist?

Dr. Sellers will schedule your appointments according to your specific case. Usually, patients visit our office every 6 – 8 weeks for Invisalign treatment.
