Dr. Couto’s treatment philosophy is simple. She wants to give you
the nicest smile and healthiest bite possible, but at the same time,
minimize the costs involved.
Financial costs are certainly very important, but there is also the
cost of time and the ‘hassle’ factor involved in the various
orthodontic devices. Some orthodontic devices are bigger and bulkier,
while some are smaller and more comfortable.
Dr. Couto works very hard to stay on the leading edge of
orthodontic technology, so she can offer you the fastest, most
comfortable, and least expensive options possible. After discussing
your treatment goals with Dr. Couto, she can generally provide you
with several customized treatment options to meet these goals and
discuss with you the pros and cons of each option.
