The following information is a general guide on the orthodontic process and what to expect should your child require braces.

First Visit

During your child’s first visit, the Cartersville, GA orthodontist will examine your child’s teeth and jaw. This may include X-rays and/or a mold of your child’s teeth. The orthodontist will likely have questions for you regarding your own observations and any complaints that your child may have regarding discomfort, jaw popping, difficulty chewing, etc. The orthodontist will then discuss options and make a recommendation on whether your child may need braces, aligners, headgear, and other options depending on the specific needs of your child’s teeth.

Regular Visits and Maintenance

Depending on the type of device your child has to straighten his or her teeth, you will likely need to go back to the Cartersville, GA orthodontist every four weeks or so in order for the orthodontist to monitor the teeth’s response to the device.

What Happens After Braces?

Typically, braces are necessary for one to two years. After that, your child’s orthodontist may recommend a retainer.


There is no getting around the fact that orthodontic treatments can be quite expensive. Often, insurance plans do not include dental procedures, and if they do, they may not cover 100%. Vargo Orthodontics will go over the details of our recommendation for your child, including cost after the initial visit. We have great respect for our clients and would not conduct a procedure without discussing the payment expectations up front.
