Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the next steps of treatment now that I’ve had a consultation?

A: Congratulations on completing the important first step in your smile journey by meeting with us for an orthodontic consultation! To move forward and get started with treatment, you’ll need to sign all applicable paperwork and pay the down payment we discussed. We also require our patients to have a professional dental cleaning within six months of starting treatment. If you need a dental cleaning, book a visit with your general dentist.

Once your dentist has ensured your teeth and gums are healthy and has gotten your pearly whites sparkling clean, schedule an appliance delivery appointment at Aura Orthodontics. This is the visit where you’ll receive your Invisalign or Invisalign Teen aligners or get your braces put on.

Q: How much will my monthly payments be for orthodontic treatment?

A: Do you want to see what the monthly cost of treatment would be if you decide to change your down payment amount or the number of monthly payments for your interest-free financing? Wondering if it would make more sense to take advantage of our paid-in-full discount as opposed to paying for treatment over time? Use our payment calculator to weigh your options and decide on a plan that works best for your budget and needs. Simply plug in the total treatment cost we provided you at your consultation and try different scenarios to arrive at a number you feel comfortable with.

Q: Why should I choose Aura Orthodontics?

A: Well, aside from our sparkling personalities 😉, the team here at Aura Orthodontics has the experience and knowledge to address a wide range of orthodontic issues, ranging from simple to complex. Dr. Sharma, Dr. Lin and Dr. Koo are certified specialists in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.
