What is Orthodontics?
Also known as dentofacial orthopedics, orthodontics is a subspecialty of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial abnormalities. Orthodontic treatments work by using special appliances to slowly shift the position of the teeth and jaw. Orthodontic treatment options include traditional, metal braces and clear aligner therapy such as Invisalign®.
What Is an Orthodontist?

How Much Does Orthodontics Cost in Greensboro?
The cost of orthodontic treatment varies for the treatment options. We offer complimentary initial exams to all new patients considering orthodontic treatment and will provide specific pricing and payment options based on your individualized treatment plan.
Dr. Alan Irvin is committed to providing multiple options so that families can afford quality, orthodontic treatment. We accept most insurance plans, major credit cards, and cash as forms of payment on orthodontic procedures. Insurance coverage can change, so be sure to check with our office to confirm current coverage. Irvin Orthodontics also offers payment plans including in-house financing and CareCredit® to help make the cost of your orthodontic treatment an affordable investment.
Orthodontic treatment is effective in all forms, but the way it is effective varies among procedures. Most orthodontic treatments involve using specialized brackets, trays or devices to gently guide crooked teeth into a new position over time. In some cases, all of the teeth need to shift slightly, and in others, only a few teeth need to shift. Your orthodontic treatment options will vary based on the degree of correction needed for an optimal smile.
