Orthodontist vs Orthodontic Specialists

A regular orthodontist that is available at a general dentist’s office can usually handle simple cases.

When they come across a more difficult case an orthodontist might refer you to a specialist. They might also suggest that your case requires surgery. 

It is important that at this point you consult with a specialist. Dr. Kanaan is famous for resolving these types of cases without the use of surgery.

After assessing your case he will give you the best possible personalized treatment plan.

  2. The length of the treatment: 12 months cases or phase I usually cost half of the regular cases.

What is the process to get braces?

During the initial consultation, we will take some pictures and X-rays. Dr. Kanaan will perform a visual exam and he might ask for a 3D X-ray which will be taken at our office.  

Your teeth have to be clean and cavity-free. If you need teeth cleaning, we will refer you back to your dentist.

We also have our awesome hygienist to do a professional cleaning for you. 

Dr. Kanaan can place your braces the same day if you choose Metal, clear or gold braces.

If you choose Invisalign or Incognito, then it takes 2-3 weeks to have them back.
