Frequent Questions

There is currently no age limit to obtain the benefits of orthodontic treatment. In children the ideal age for consultation is 7. This will help prevent future problems related to growth.

On average, an orthodontic case takes between 18 to 30 month to be solved. However, treatment time can vary depending on individual requirements, severity of the problem and patients age. An on-time consultation will contribute to a better treatment planning.

We currently work with high-tech materials that remain active for several weeks. For this reason, and depending on the treatment phase, visits are carried out at intervals that can vary between 2 to 6 weeks.

The value depends on the severity of the problem, which affects the type and time of treatment. We provide payment facilities that allow you to receive an efficient and timely health service at a reasonable cost. 

In some cases it is required to extract teeth to obtain an aesthetic and functional result. A good diagnosis will allow you to make the best decision and define whether extractions will be part of the treatment plan. 

Colored braces don't exist. The colors are provided by rubber bands that are placed around the brackets to activate them. We use self-ligating brackets which do not require the use of this type of accessory. Elastic ligatures increase friction and therefore the treatment proceeds more slowly.
Absolutely not! There are some malocclusions that need to be solved before all teeth are changed, especially those that have to do with growth and prevention. Sometimes if you wait a long time the correction may be more complex.

An increasing percentage of adults request orthodontic treatments. No one is “too old” to begin orthodontic treatment. At all ages it is important to solve functional and aesthetic problems that can generate feelings of discomfort and low self-esteem.

The orthodontist, through postgraduate studies of 2 years or more, obtains a training that qualifies him for the resolution of cases of skeletal anomalies and dental malocclusions of high complexity.

A malocclusion can generate both functional and aesthetic problems that can significantly decrease your quality of life.
