The Cost of Orthodontic Treatment

Every smile is as unique as a fingerprint, which means every treatment plan and its total cost will vary from person to person. Depending on your orthodontic needs, the type of treatment the doctor recommends, the length of time you’ll spend in treatment, and how well you take care of your appliances, your cost could vary. While we can’t give you an exact price until your full complimentary consultation and exam is completed, we’re happy to provide you with an estimate – just remember that your insurance policy and flexible WOW! Smiles payment plan will reduce the amount after you start treatment.

The Hidden Costs: What You Pay When You Don’t Get Braces

It’s true. Getting braces costs money, but not getting braces may cost you more in the long run. Here’s how: 

Future Health Problems

It may not be common knowledge, but your oral health is undoubtedly linked to your overall health, which means your teeth play a major role in how good you feel. When your teeth are misaligned, you could experience a wide range of problems that could potentially put you at risk for further health issues in the future. 

To start, crooked teeth are harder to keep clean than straight teeth. With more cracks and crevices for plaque to build up, individuals who skip out on the orthodontic treatment they may end up with an overgrowth of bad bacteria or even gum disease. Misaligned teeth may also cause other health issues, including headaches, Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), and heart problems. Medical bills from these issues add up quickly, but many of them can be avoided with the help of orthodontic treatment.

If your eyes are the window to the soul, your smile is the window to your happiness – and that counts for a lot! Studies show that even the act of smiling can cause genuine happiness, but if you’re afraid to show off those pearly whites, you may miss out on some of life’s greatest pleasures.
