Your first orthodontic visit with Dr. Mike Miyamoto will be a clinical examination to address any questions or concerns and to discuss how braces may benefit you or your child. A complimentary exam at Southside Orthodontic Center includes a careful examination of the teeth, jaws and facial structure in order to reveal a variety of potential orthodontic problems.
The cost of your orthodontic treatment in San Antonio, Texas, will vary depending on the severity of the problem and the estimated treatment time. We accept a variety of insurances and have several payment options to help make orthodontics affordable for you.
If it is determined that braces may benefit you, Dr. Miyamoto will recommend taking diagnostic records, which include photos, X-rays and digital models of the teeth. These diagnostic records will then be used by the orthodontist to form a more complete diagnosis and treatment plan.
The time taken for placing your braces or appliance usually lasts about an hour and a half. After that, we will see you every four to eight weeks for shorter adjustment appointments, lasting about 30 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. Please call 210-775-0312 to schedule a visit with our caring, professional orthodontist.
