Dr. Alsaadi is a General Dentist with 16 years of experience who also enjoys offering Braces treatments to his patients for the convenience of complete dental treatments under one roof. He has and continues to invest hundreds of hours in orthodontics and general dentistry continuing education while operating his dental practice. He completed a hands on course of one year entitled “Mastery in Advanced Orthodontics” with the American Orthodontics Society under the guidance of Dr. Larry W. White, a world renown Orthodontist in Dallas with 50+ years of experience.
During the initial braces consultation, Dr. Alsaadi will take all the proper records such as a digital panoramic x-ray, a digital cephalometric x-ray, digital bite wings x-rays, impressions & bite registration, and digital photos along with the clinical exam. He then performs a virtual treatment objective and presents it to the patient and their parents along with written consent forms prior to start of any treatment. Also all costs and financial arrangements are presented to the patient and their parents prior to start of any treatment so they are fully aware. The patient is always given the option to seek treatment at an Orthodontist office if they choose to. However many of our patients prefer the convenience of having their cleanings and braces done in the same office under one roof and our price is a lot more affordable for $2500 ($100/month).
The type of braces you get depends on a number of factors:
- The severity of your condition
- The recommendation of your dentist
- How much you are willing to pay
- How long you will be in braces
- Your own personal preference
Metal brackets are made of metal brackets along with an elastic rubber band called a ligature to hold the wire onto the bracket. These types of braces are very strong and can withstand most types of treatment. They also tend to be the most inexpensive and can treat the most severe cases. Metal braces also tend to have the least amount of treatment time when compared with other orthodontic solutions.
Some of the drawback to having metal braces is that they cause irritation to the cheeks and gum but patients often adjust to the feelings after a few weeks. Metal braces are a solution to nearly all patients who need braces. Schedule an appointment with us today to find out more about braces today.
