Braces Better Than Ever
Faster – More Discreet – Damon Braces Certified

This place is great. I took my 7 year old daughter here. The office is extremely kid friendly and fun. They even give their patients a free ice cream cone before they leave. Lucky to find such a good place!

Great place to get your teeth straightened. It’s been less than a year, and I’m almost done. Holy moly Batman, that was fast. I’m no longer embarrassed to show my teeth when I smile. Dr. D is an awesome guy. I didn’t feel judged once, even though my teeth were so bad.

How much do braces cost?
We’ve got a straight answer for you right away: quality braces treatment in the United States typically will cost you about $6,000 – $7,000.
Each case is different, and no orthodontist can give a diagnosis over the phone. The length and type of treatment determine the cost. That’s why when you search online, you might see an estimated range of costs for braces as large as $1,800 – $8,000. In theory, that’s true, but it’s not very helpful to you.
Most of our braces patients at Dickerson Orthodontics get treatment for between $6,000-$7,000. For all the answers to the cost of braces and what it might cost you elsewhere, read our complete guide here.
When treatment is started at the appropriate time, it is often less costly than the dental care that may be needed to treat serious problems in the future. Most people wait too long to start treatment and end up paying the cost in money, time, and health.
Sign up today for a free consultation with us and we will walk you through a customized braces treatment plan and give you clear answers as to how much braces cost for you.
How long does braces treatment take?
At Dickerson Orthodontics, many of our patients finish treatment in closer to 12 months. Yep, that’s right – just about 1 year of braces total.
That might sound even more exciting when we tell you that the industry average treatment length for orthodontic treatment – including braces somewhere else – is about 22-24 months. That’s nearly twice as long as it would take you with Dickerson Orthodontics.

What’s the right age for my child to see Dr. Dickerson?
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a check-up with an orthodontist for children no later than age 7.
There are very important reasons for your child’s immediate and long-term health to see an orthodontist by age 7 – it’s far from random. For everything you need to know about why age 7 is so key, read this guide.
What’s a braces consultation with Dr. Todd Dickerson like?
Whether the consultation is for you or your child, we believe a trip to the orthodontist ought to make you smile.
At Dickerson Orthodontics, we’re committed to making every part of your experience remarkable, enjoyable, and simple.
With young patients who still have some baby teeth in, we often use a ‘wait-and-see’ approach. There are only a few orthodontic issues that require correction around age 7. BUT – catching these issues early is extremely beneficial because they’re also the easiest to treat at this age. Wait longer and it may cost you.
For patients with all of their adult teeth, the initial consultation is for getting to know you and your smile.
You’ll get 1-on-1 care from Dr. Todd and our amazing team. We’ll take orthodontic-specific records to evaluate and track your growth, and use those to develop a customized treatment plan right there with you during your initial consultation.
By the time you’re done, you’ll have clear answers about your treatment plan, cost, length, and anything else that’s important to you – like insurance coverage. All for free – sign up today to get confidence and peace of mind from your initial consultation.
What are the eating restrictions with braces?
Braces have come a long way thanks to modern technology. Current braces are much more durable than those of even 10 years ago. But it’s still important for your smile (and your wallet) to avoid damaging them.
Certain hard, sticky, or chewy foods can damage braces – or a component of them. Generally speaking, you’ll want to avoid any food that fits those categories and stick to softer foods that are gentler on braces. Here’s some of the foods that are recommended to avoid:
- Hard taco shells
- Sticky and hard candy
- Hard cookies or crackers
- Sticky or hard chocolate
Try to avoid biting into hard foods with your front teeth. When possible, cut up these hard foods into smaller pieces:
- Raw vegetables
- French/Italian bread
- Some fruit
- Thin crust pizza
- Corn on the cob
Are braces uncomfortable? How much pain should I expect?
Modern braces are not like those in the past. Thanks to technology, today’s are smaller and more comfortable.
As a patient, you may experience some discomfort after certain visits. However, pain relievers such as Tylenol or Advil can help alleviate the pain.
