Our team is serious about smiles and we understand just how important it is to make a well-informed decision when seeking orthodontic treatment.

We will always answer your questions in a respectful and efficient manner and also offer the following educational material to help guide you through the process:

Orthodontics Overview

A straight smile can enhance your appearance, your oral health, and your overall quality of life. In addition to a stunning smile and an increase in self-confidence, properly aligned teeth will help you eat, chew, and speak more efficiently. And because straight teeth are easier to clean, orthodontic treatment can help you reduce the risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

Braces are no longer just for kids, either. You are never too old to take advantage of the treatment options we offer at our practice. In fact, about one in five of today’s orthodontic patients are adults.

Our highly skilled orthodontic team of specialists can help you enhance your smile. We use the latest in state-of-the-art equipment as well as advanced treatments in the industry to gently restructure your bone and move the teeth into more favorable positions.

Our innovative techniques can significantly reduce tenderness, shorten your treatment time, and provide you with an assortment of options to choose from.

Orthodontic treatment uses steady, gentle pressure to move teeth into proper alignment.

We believe in specialized and precise treatment for each patient that’s individualized for your exact needs.

Our in-office treatment plans will start with X-rays, dental impressions, and photos. The length of treatment will always be dependent upon age, the severity of the orthodontic condition, and patient compliance. So times could vary from 12 to 36 months.

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile and a boost in confidence.

 We also strive to make our patients feel at home and welcome throughout their treatment process. Our team is dedicated to ensuring you receive high-quality care from the first moment you walk through our door.


The cost of your orthodontic treatment will be just as individualized as you are.

To learn more about your treatment costs, please schedule a no-pressure consultation with us today.

By thoroughly examining your unique situation, Dr. Righellis can answer all of your questions about orthodontic services, prices, and our payment and financing options.

Our knowledgeable and helpful team will review your dental insurance coverage to maximize your benefits.

At Righellis Orthodontics, we not only care about your smile but your finances too. We realize that orthodontic treatment can be a large financial commitment but it’s also a huge investment in improving you or your child’s quality of life and future.

 It’s important to us that nothing gets in the way of you having the smile you have always dreamt of. We don’t want the cost to be the reason you decline the treatment you need. Please review our many payment options here.
