Orthodontic treatment can be a truly life-changing process, but to get the result you deserve, it's important to know how to ask the right questions. At Oubre Orthodontics, we're proud to offer convenient, affordable orthodontic treatment from our father and son team of orthodontists who have treated patients throughout the greater Lafayette area, making it easier than ever for patients to get the smiles they truly want. We strive to be a comprehensive resource when it comes to orthodontic care, so here are 8 questions you should ask your orthodontist at your next consultation or appointment. 


The Best Questions to Ask an Orthodontist


As an orthodontic patient, it's important to advocate for yourself, and that includes asking questions to get the information you need. Here are 8 helpful questions you can ask your orthodontist to help you get the best possible smile: 


  1. What treatments do you offer?: Before committing to treatment, you should understand the full spectrum of options they provide. We offer several options of treatment ranging from traditional braces to a clear aligner treatment like Invisalign, with other options in between.
  2. What orthodontic conditions do I have?: Understanding your situation is critical to successful treatment. At your new patient examination our orthodontist will evaluate and diagnose your bite and discuss treatment options with you pertaining to your specific case. 
  3. What happens if I don't get treatment right now?: Asking this question will help you get a clear picture of the consequences of delaying treatment. 
  4. How long will treatment take?: Remember to factor in both the active phase of treatment and the retention phase that comes afterward. 
  5. How much will treatment cost?: Orthodontic treatment ranges in cost on a case by case basis depending on the severity or simplicity of your case. We can, however, give you an exact fee work up after your new patient exam with one of our orthodontists.
  6. What are my financial options?: Whether it's insurance or an orthodontic financing plan, it's important to talk over all the potential financial options at your disposal. 
  7. Which treatment would you recommend?: Sometimes, choosing your treatment method comes down to personal preference, while other times it may be dictated by your condition. Make sure to ask your orthodontist which method they recommend and why. 
  8. How can I protect my teeth during treatment?: It's vital to take proper care of your teeth during orthodontic treatment, so make sure to ask your orthodontist for tips and recommendations on how.
