Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q:How long have you been in business?

    A:Koch Orthodontics was opened in 2011. That means we have been satisfying customers and creating beautiful smiles for ten years now.

  • Q:What do you recommend: braces, Invisalign®, or self-ligating braces? What would you suggest to friends and family?

    A:Every orthodontic option we provide comes with a unique set of pros and cons. Some options are less visible or intrusive but require more time to get your smile perfect. Some are more effective or uniquely applicable to certain oral conditions. What you can expect from Koch Orthodontics is expert and honest advice that is tailored specifically to your situation. We will lay out the choices that pertain to your orthodontic situation and let you decide which is best for you.

  • Q:What am I supposed to do if brackets fall off? What about when my retainer breaks?

    A:Give us a call or contact us online and we will schedule an appointment to analyze your specific situation. If urgent repair is needed, we are prompt and act with time-sensitive speed. If you need a replacement, we can order a new product right away and we will do everything in our power to expedite its arrival.

  • Q:Do you specialize in orthodontics, or do you do general dentistry?

    A:Orthodontics is our specialty, but we team up with a general dentist who helps patients with cavities, tooth cleaning, and dental hygiene needs.

  • Q:What treatment options do you offer?

    A:We provide all sorts of services, including invisible braces, self-ligating braces, Invisalign®, and Invisalign® Teen. Find out if you need one of our many orthodontic solutions today by scheduling an appointment.

  • Q:What is the Kids Club?

    A:At Koch Orthodontics, we stand by the American Association of Orthodontists' recommendation to have an orthodontist evaluate your smile by age 7. That is where our amazing Kids Club comes in! This exclusive club is for proactive families who wish to give their kids early orthodontic treatment for best results.

    Kids Club members receive regular smile checks as we monitor the development of teeth and jaws to ensure optimal results later. Although members often do not need treatment just yet, this observational phase allows Dr. Koch and Dr. Gass to track key changes to provide stellar orthodontic treatment when necessary.

  • Q:Are there any other Kids Club benefits?

    A:Absolutely! Each appointment will assess numerous factors, including the loss of baby teeth, jaw growth, and the eruption of adult teeth. This way, we can solve orthodontic issues before or as they emerge. We can proactively create space between the crowded teeth to eliminate the need for later extractions. We can expand the jaw to its proper width to promote healthy development and cleaner airways. We can adjust protrusive front teeth. We can encourage good oral habits at an early age. And we can greatly reduce severe underbites and overbites.

  • Q:What does the Kids Club cost?

    A:This is the best part! All observation appointments are completely complementary so long as your child is a member of the Kids Club.

  • Q:Do you have orthodontic cases that mirror my own situation?

    A:Every set of teeth is unique. Orthodontics entails well-established methods, but subtleties and variations are ever present. That is why it is important to be flexible, and not rigidly impose a single template on every client. By using the latest technologies and techniques, we assess, diagnose, and execute orthodontic plans that are customized just for you. Contact us here for a free consultation today.

  • Q:I have dental insurance. Do I have orthodontic coverage too?

    A:If your dental insurance covers any amount of the orthodontic treatment we provide, we can assist you in gathering the requisite paperwork and insurance claims.

  • Q:What are your financing options?

    A:We have many different financing avenues that can work with nearly any budget. We do not require full payment before a treatment begins. If needed, we can set up a payment plan that consists of a down payment and a remaining balance that is paid monthly, interest free.

  • Q:Will my credit be checked?
