Learn About What to Expect from Bandeen Orthodontics in Kalamazoo

Bandeen Orthodontics offers patients in Kalamazoo and the surrounding areas with a full range of orthodontic services to help transform misaligned teeth into beautiful smiles. Whether you need orthodontic services for your child or for yourself, you can count on us to work closely with you, so you are fully informed about the options available to you. We know that many patients may be hesitant about the orthodontic or dental work they need to restore their healthy smile, which is why we take extra efforts to make sure that your experience with us is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. In today’s post, we will discuss our process, so you know what to expect throughout your orthodontic treatment from start to finish.

Consultations, Examinations, and Appointments

Your treatment process begins with your free initial consultation. During this consultation, we will thoroughly examine your teeth, taking pictures and x-rays as necessary to get a full understanding of your tooth alignment. From there, you will have a chance to discuss your situation and the treatment options available to you with the doctor and the treatment coordinator, including insurance and financial options. In some cases, you may be able to begin your orthodontic treatment that day; otherwise, we can schedule your first appointment at a later date. Each 30 to 45 minute appointment, whether a regular check-up or other procedure, is scheduled every 4 to 8 weeks, depending on what you need done. Note that you do not require a referral from a dentist to schedule an appointment for treatment.

Payment Options Available

Bandeen Orthodontics has a number of payment options available for your convenience. We can bill your insurance, but we will work with you to put together a payment plan, including a family discount if you have multiple family members who require treatment. We can work out a flexible payment plan with 0% financing available for most of our patients. We will work with you to formulate a plan that fits well within your budget, even if it means extending it past the completion of your treatment plan. We can also help you with insurance claims, and we have active military discounts.

Great Orthodontic Options Depending on Your Situation

No two sets of teeth are alike, so no two orthodontic treatment strategies are alike. This is why we work diligently to make sure we get a full overview of your teeth and understanding of your expectations, so we can determine which of our systems is the best for your specific situation. We have the Damon System which allows us to adjust your smile without any of the unnecessarily painful procedures like palatal extenders. The Insignia Custom Smile Design allows us to plan out the entire orthodontic treatment process before the braces are put in place. We also offer the Invisalign system, which can produce excellent results without a mouthful of unsightly metal; however, this process is not possible for all patients, so please ask the doctor about Invisalign during your initial consultation.
