Use “Ask an Orthodontist” to ask general questions about orthodontic treatment. You will receive an answer as quickly as possible from our panel of practicing AAO-member orthodontists, usually within 2-3 business days. The AAO regrets that this service cannot provide a second opinion, or that questions from individuals who are age 17 or younger, questions about fees, a specific individual’s diagnosis, treatment plan, appliances used, etc. cannot be answered. Please consult an AAO orthodontist.
