Top 5 Orthodontic Myths:
1. Braces are expensive. It’s hard to put a price on a beautiful smile that you’ll keep for the rest of your life. However, we will work hard to create a plan for you that maximizes your insurance benefit and makes treatment as affordable as possible.
2 .Braces are painful. There may be some minor discomfort and sensitivity directly after an adjustment, but the majority of the time you won’t even notice the braces are there. And if you choose Invisalign, you won’t even see them!
3. Braces are ugly. Modern advances have brought braces a long way. From customizable bands to the Invisalign system, braces can now be colorful or even invisible!
4. Braces needed only to straighten teeth. Orthodontics isn’t just about pretty teeth. Improper bites aren’t always obvious, but can negatively affect the way you chew and more. Getting your teeth and jawbone in the correct position will create harmony and better function.
5. Braces are for kids. There is no age limit for orthodontics. The nature of how your teeth move and shift is the same in adults as it is in children. Most importantly, it’s never too late to use a great smile.
