Do you need Recommendations for your Kids to get their Teeth straightened?
Many people will only have to see a general dentist in their lifetime, but for some, they may also need to see an orthodontist, especially Kids!
When looking for the Best Orthodontist (near me) usually your favorite Kids Dentists often provide referrals when they think the time is right for your child to move onto orthodontic treatment
While many people believe that orthodontics is just a cosmetic thing this is not the case. Sometimes treatment options vary. Beautiful smiles are a result of orthodontic treatment, but they can also correct other issues, which is why insurance plans may cover more of the cost than you may expect.
We’ve found that a good dental coverage policy may cover up to 50% of the cost, so we recommend you factor that into your decision. Of those Orthodontists that we highly recommend, most if not all, do offer monthly payment plans and will work with you as needed.
All North Texas Orthodontists are your best friend if you or someone in your family have an overbite, underbite or if there are teeth that need to be realigned to fix crowding or spacing in the mouth.
All of these issues can lead to issues such as:
- Difficulty in Eating or Chewing
- Problems with Speech
- Gum Disease
- Tooth Decay
What types of Braces can I choose from?
Traditional braces were always metal braces, but now they have other options, like clear braces, and colors, so kids can personalize their look some more.
Another option is also Invisalign, which is something our family chose for our youngest. Your child will need to be diligent about wearing their retainers as needed as they can be removed when they brush their teeth or eat and drink during the day.
Here are a few questions to ask a Potential Best Orthodontist near me to help you decide
Advice is crucial when you are making a long-term decision and a financial commitment like this and choosing the best Orthodontist for your child. Making sure they’re board certified is a great first step.
How much does Treatment typically cost?
Budget $2,000 – $5,000 depending on what is needed. Be sure to check Insurance coverage to help with your financial commitment.
How long will the Treatment take?
This depends very much on what is needed. Some Kids and Adults will only need one round of Orthodontic treatment, while others might have phases of different types of Braces and Retainers over a number of months or years.
Can Insurance cover Orthodontic treatment?
Some Dental Insurance companies, like Metlife (as an example) will provide partial coverage with a limit per child on your policy. Usually a cash payment is necessary but most practices have payment plans and will work with you. You can look at your FSA and HSA options as many will allow the use of funds for orthodontics for *MEDICAL NECESSARY* reasons
What happens if the Braces or Retainer breaks or gets lost?
Usually a package is offered which covers Visits and Replacements as needed, but this coverage might lapse after a period of time after the treatment ends.
