How much is self-confidence, a proper bite and a beautiful smile worth?
The fee for orthodontic treatment will depend on many factors, including how severe the problem is, how complex the treatment is, and how long the treatment lasts. Orthodontic treatment is an individualized service. It is not like buying a TV or car where you can choose your model and bargain shop for the lowest price. Just as you would not automatically choose the contractor for your home based on the bottom line, you should not automatically choose your orthodontist based on the bottom line. Instead, you need to consider the level of service you will be receiving, the technology and materials used, the expertise and the quality of education received by your practitioner. All orthodontic offices are not created equal. Straight teeth and a winning smile is a gainful investment that will yield immeasurable returns.
Please keep in mind that orthodontic treatment is not merely cosmetic. In many cases there is an underlying medical dysfunction. Therefore, financing for treatment is usually available. The cost of orthodontic treatment may even be completely covered for eligible patients. (Please see: How can I get free braces?) Moreover, our office offers various payment plans to accommodate your financial situation and will even tailor a payment schedule to fit your needs. Well timed orthodontic treatment to correct a problem is often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat the more serious problems that can develop years later.
