I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lucas and his staff. I came to him 10 years ago as an adult patient. It was a great and, yes, FUN experience! My teeth are now straight, I have no more TMJ and I love my new smile!

FAQs About Braces
- What’s the best age to get braces?
The American Association of Orthodontists…Open a new window to the AAO website… recommends all children should get examined by an orthodontic specialist no later than age seven.
The earlier we can identify problems, the better chance your child will get to prevent serious problems later on.
You’re never too old for braces!
We treat kids, teens, and adults alike.
- What type of braces do you offer?
- Stainless steel braces: Modern technology has made braces smaller and less noticeable. You can even color customize your braces.
- Ceramic braces: We use clear ceramic wires and brackets that produce the same results as traditional braces while making treatment more discreet. They’re more fragile and require more care.

- How long is the treatment?
This can vary from patient to patient, depending on you or your child’s case complexity.
On average, treatment may last anywhere between 12 to 36 months.
We also offer retainers to keep your smile straight.
- Do braces hurt?
You’ll be happy to know many patients report that braces don’t hurt.
You or your child may experience some discomfort when you first begin your treatment. This is because your braces will put pressure on your teeth to move them to optimal position.
