Orthodontics is a well-known popular option for kids, teens, and adults worldwide who want to achieve a better-looking smile. But, the cost is still extremely present and acts as a deterrent for people getting braces. At Gentle Dental Care, our hope is that we’ve eliminated the issue of cost by instilling multiple payment options for you to explore. Still, many of you may be wondering if the cost is worth the punishment of metal braces plastered among your teeth. We’re here to tell you they can be.
Braces: Not just for aesthetics
Braces are mostly known as a purely cosmetic appliance; crooked, gapped, or out-of-place teeth are the most common reasons people get braces. But braces aren’t just purely cosmetic; they are most often used to fix a common mouth problem known as TMJ or temporomandibular joint dysfunction. If you have TMJ, then you know how intense the pain can be. If you don’t suffer then, you should know the pain can be excruciating and make daily activities, like eating, a painful chore.
So, while most people turn to the metal bracket for cosmetic reasons, many of our patients turn to them for a different reason: pain. What does this mean for you? Well, if you’re in pain, then braces are most definitely worth the investment considering the pain you succumb to from TMJ or other jaw disorders. If you want braces for a purely cosmetic reason, then we’re the team to trust. We’ll provide you with a free consultation and evaluation.
Payment options that benefit you
At Gentle Dental Care, we offer premier financing to cover the cost of your braces through CareCredit. Care Credit works just like your average credit card and can be used for most medical services. This option can extremely alleviate the burden of paying for braces.
Finally, we offer most major insurance plans, including CHIP and Medicaid dental plans. Our other insurance options include Blue Cross Blue Shield, Dentemax, Delta Dental, Humana, Metlife, and so much more! At Gentle Dental Care, we don’t want you going without treatment no matter the reason you need it. We work with you, and we’re sure to provide you with multiple options that’ll meet your needs. You can even combine Care Credit with your premium insurance options.
