Can you go straight to an orthodontist for braces?

Can you get braces on front teeth only?
What Are Partial Braces? Partial braces go on the upper or lower front teeth to provide early minor correction to crooked teeth. Instead of putting brackets on every tooth, partial braces consist of brackets on the front four or six teeth.
Can braces be paid monthly?

Can a 10 year old get braces?
There are some discrepancies about when orthodontic work should begin. The Academy of Orthodontics recommends that an orthodontic evaluation is done before age 7. Confusingly, most children are not getting braces until a later age between 11 and 13 years old as opposed to 8-10 years old.
Why are braces so expensive?
The intricate details of the brackets and the expertise of the orthodontist allow the teeth to move at the proper pace. Higher quality orthodontic materials also increase the price, and the quality of appliances used does significantly impact the results of your treatment.
What age is best for braces?
Some children start their orthodontic treatment as young as six. However, most agree that the best age to get braces or another form of treatment is between the ages of 8 and 14, which is when the head and mouth are most conducive to straightening.
Can you get braces for no reason?
There aren’t many people who would get braces just for the fun of it (and probably not many orthodontists who would let people get them just for the fun of it). But there are other reasons besides the obvious one of a mouth full of crooked teeth. The most common other reason for braces is to realign the jaw.
How long is the waiting list for braces?
Waiting times for orthodontic treatment can range from 6 months to 2 years or more.
Can you get braces if you have cavities?
Yes, you can get braces if you have fillings. In fact, often cavities and misaligned teeth are linked to one another, and there’s no fixing one without the other. It’s not uncommon at all for a dentist to recommend braces or similar treatment after the cavities are addressed.
Do they put braces on the first visit?
Yes! You will be able to get braces or aligners during your first visit. But before we recommend treatment, we will need to perform an orthodontic evaluation and determine the best treatment for your smile.
Do orthodontists check for cavities?
Because your orthodontist is not in charge of cleaning your teeth or checking for cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, or managing tooth aches, you still need to see your dentist twice a year at least. Orthodontists and dentists specialize in different things. You need to see both to take care of your teeth.
