Is Going to an Orthodontist More Expensive?

Meta description: It’s a misconception that going to an orthodontist is more expensive. Find out why investing in your smile is key.


At Britton Orthodontics, we get it – picking the road to your dream smile is a big deal. Let's talk about a common myth that's been floating around: that getting your teeth aligned by real-deal orthodontists in a specialized clinic is going to break the bank compared to other options like your regular dentist or those at-home DIY treatments. Well, we're here to set the record (and your teeth) straight!


Consider the Full Package

When it comes to choosing an orthodontic provider, take a minute to consider the full package – the personalized care, the pro-level knowledge and training, and the lasting benefits that come with choosing Britton Orthodontics for your smile journey. It's not just about the dollars; it's about making a savvy investment in your grin that pays off in the long run!


Avoid Complications

Without the personalized care and attention from a specialized orthodontist, the risk of complications and the need for further treatment can increase – which means costs increase as well. Most often, it is significantly more expensive to fix complications than to treat issues properly from the start. We focus on delivering tailored treatment plans that address your unique needs, potentially saving you from unforeseen expenses in the future.


Expertise Matters: Trust the Pros

Orthodontists go through significantly more schooling than general dentists to become masters of the art and science of tooth movement. While general dentists are fantastic partners in keeping your teeth healthy, they don’t have the specialized training required to navigate the complicated world of orthodontics. When it comes to precision and expertise in the intricate details of alignment, you want orthodontic experts like us. Your smile deserves nothing less!


Problems from Self-Guided Treatment

Recent trends reveal a growing number of individuals attempting at-home orthodontic treatments or opting for generic solutions. However, the repercussions often involve complications, leading to a higher likelihood of re-treatment. Research indicates that many individuals end up seeking orthodontic specialists after attempting alternative methods, ultimately paying more for correction and additional procedures.


Affordable Treatment Options

Orthodontists also have access to the technology, tools, and treatment options that you want – like Invisalign. This means achieving your dream smile with state-of-the-art clear aligners becomes even more affordable as we offer a variety of treatment options to meet your needs, regardless of the treatment option you choose. We never want finances to be the reason you don't get the orthodontic care and beautiful smile you deserve!
