Do You Want to Improve the Aesthetics of Your Smile? Our Orthodontist in Woodstock Can Help!
Orthodontics is a specialized type of dental treatment designed to correct issues with the alignment and positioning of the teeth and jaw. The treatment is performed by a specialized dentist known as an orthodontist and typically involves devices such as braces or aligners that gradually shift the position of the teeth and jaw. If you are unhappy with the aesthetics of your smile or are suffering from jaw or tooth pain, schedule a consultation with our orthodontist in Woodstock to find out if orthodontic treatment is right for you.
We offer orthodontic treatment options for a wide range of dental issues, including crooked or crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, and gaping teeth. If not corrected, these issues can cause significant pain and even make you more prone to cavities and gum disease.
No two patients have the exact same orthodontic issues. Our orthodontic specialist will perform a comprehensive assessment of your teeth and jaw issues to help you determine which treatment option is best for you. Orthodontic treatment has evolved significantly in recent years, so patients have more types of braces to choose from than ever before in terms of appearance and cost.
If your primary dentist has referred your child to our orthodontist for braces, there are a couple of things that you should keep in mind. First, it is extremely common for children and teens to undergo orthodontic treatment, so they should not feel embarrassed or that they are being singled out. In fact, early orthodontic intervention can help set the stage for a lifetime of better oral health. Our team will ensure that your child understands and is comfortable with each step of the treatment process.
Orthodontic treatment for children has also improved significantly in recent years. Today’s treatment options are made from sophisticated materials that can shorten treatment time and come in styles that allow your child to express their unique personality. Of course, some of the new options may cost more, so you should verify that they are covered under your insurance or dental plan.
Even if you are well into adulthood, you may still benefit from orthodontic treatment. Thanks to innovations that make orthodontic treatment more discreet, we are seeing an increase in the number of adult patients looking to improve the appearance of their smile or to correct problems causing chronic teeth and jaw pain. We offer adult braces in a wide range of materials and styles. We even offer options that are practically invisible, so no one will even know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment if you choose not to tell them. In addition to the orthodontist’s recommendations, you should also consider the coverage limitations of your dental insurance or discount plan to minimize any out-of-pocket costs.
We are committed to making braces in Woodstock as affordable as possible for our patients. We encourage our patients to view orthodontic treatment as an investment in their long-term oral health. If not addressed, orthodontic issues can lead to dental health problems that can be painful and expensive to treat. The average cost of orthodontic treatment varies widely from area to area. The cost can also vary from patient to patient within the same practice. Following your consultation, we will provide you with a personalized treatment plan and an outline of the cost. The cost will take into consideration the severity of your dental issues, the type of treatment, the materials used, and the duration of your treatment. Before deciding on a treatment option, we recommend that patients talk with their insurance or dental discount plan provider to verify the details of their benefits. We are proud to partner with many of the most popular dental insurance plans, and we will work with you to find a treatment option that will help you maximize your benefits. Even if you do not have insurance, orthodontic treatment may still be within your budget. Call today to find out how our dental discount plans and flexible financing options can help you manage the cost of treatment.
