Nearly 20% of the U.S. population doesn’t have a bite that’s ideal. You may be one in the 20% that have avoided orthodontic treatment. Many people fear having their teeth worked on, especially getting braces. Once upon a time, orthodontics was considered to be a terrible ordeal that was painful and embarrassing.
That’s in the past. Today, orthodontics has been improved in exciting ways within a generation. Braces, including adult braces, are more appealing to look at with treatments including Invisalign and gold braces.
There are also advances in performance which means you will endure less physical pressure along with shorter treatment times. Ultimately, there is more flexibility and better treatment options that give you a more satisfying and pleasant treatment experience with Imagine Braces. Below are the top reasons to smile about modern orthodontics.
A modern advance many orthodontists use that increases comfort and decreases treatment times is digital technology. Special software is used to create digital impressions of your mouth. Your orthodontist will be able to see improvements at every stage and specify the exact movements of your teeth. This ensures that aligners and retainers are perfectly molded and work more efficiently too.
Many orthodontists don’t want you to worry about the cost of braces. The focus should be on getting the treatment you need to make your smile healthy. In order to best help patients, initial consultations with Imagine Braces are free. A flat fee for your entire treatment is an option you don’t want to pass up. Orthodontic treatments for a flat fee typically include the following:
Traditional metal braces now have thinner wires and smaller brackets that make them more comfortable and easier to clean. Food choices are not as restricted as they were before advances in orthodontics either. Modern orthodontic enhancements also free up more time in your schedule.
If you’ve opted to use Invisalign, convenience is paramount. The aligners can easily be removed to enjoy restricted foods and to brush and floss. If you have an important meeting, presentation, date, or you play sports, you can easily remove your aligners and put them back in later. Convenience doesn’t get any better than that.
Braces in the past were clunky, chunky metal, typically stainless steel. Today, wires and brackets are lighter but still just as effective. Brackets are still attached to the front of your teeth, but now there are more options. One of those options that are very attractive is gold braces. You can also add color. Switching bands to different colors during treatment makes braces a colorful and fun experience.
Would you like to be able to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist at Imagine Braces and get braces immediately if you’re a good candidate? Now you can. Orthodontic treatment is much faster, especially when you can get same-day treatments. Being able to get started right away means you will experience the health benefits of straightening your teeth faster.
In the past if retainers were lost it was a timely and expensive trip back to the orthodontist. You can protect yourself with retainer insurance that offers a 6-year program starting the day your braces are removed. It can cost up to $400 to replace your set of retainers without insurance in place.
You may be asking yourself, “What’s the big deal? I can just go without retainers.” That’s not true. Your retainers are the only way to keep teeth straight after your treatment.
In a 6-year program you get 24 new sets. The cost of the insurance upfront ends up being more affordable. Do your teeth and wallet a favor and get retainer insurance.
