Getting adult braces is a life-changing decision. Having a straight, beautiful smile is an amazing thing, but it’s going to take a little time and some commitment on your part as well. The best thing that you can do, of course, is to arm yourself with knowledge so that you know what you want and what you’ll need to do to get it.
Here are 4 questions to ask orthodontists before getting adult braces so that you are prepared and ready to win your own perfect smile!
What treatment options do you offer?
People always assume that braces mean you are about to get a mouthful of metal and that’s not always the case. For instance, there are clear aligners that may be used in some cases, which no one would see. The modern orthodontic laboratory can create a number of personalized options and standard braces might not even be required.
So, ask your dentist about your options. You might just be pleasantly surprised.
How long is my treatment going to take?
Your orthodontist can give you a general estimate on how much time your particular treatment may take. Mind you, this is a ‘ballpark figure’, but they can certainly give you a good idea of the time involved.
Braces do take time, as they will be slowly moving your teeth into their perfect positions, and this can generally take anywhere from 18 months to 3 years. When you consider that the results last a lifetime, however, that doesn’t seem like a poor trade at all!
What will my braces cost?
The cost of your braces is going to depend on a number of factors. For instance, if any tooth extractions are required to prepare you for braces, that will need to be factored in. Your insurance provider may cover quite a lot more than you think, but you will need to consult with your orthodontist to know which items will qualify.
Orthodontists realize that braces can be costly and most will offer payment plans to help ensure that you can get the smile that you want, so be sure to get a consultation so that you know all of your options.
How will treatment change my daily routine?
Getting braces is a big commitment. You will have some responsibilities that will change your daily routine that you need to be aware of. Generally, this is going to amount to a little more daily cleaning to help to keep your teeth pristine during the straightening process and you are going to need to commit 100%.
Don’t worry, it’s not difficult, and your smile is worth it!
