Thinking About Adult Orthodontic Braces?

Feb 29, 2008
Braces have usually been considered only for children or teenagers. It was a good option to help those who were a bit younger, to improve their teeth.

Now, a new trend is forming where it is becoming more and more common place for adults to use them as well. With straight teeth coming at a premium, many have decided to join the metal mouth ranks. If you feel that you too would like to join the others, there are a few things you should know.

Find A Good Orthodontist

If your current dental providers do not include orthodontists, you should first try to locate one that will be a good fit for you. Speak with your dentist about this and ask him if he can recommend any. If he doesn't have any recommendations, you can always talk to friends and family of those who have agreed to be metal mouths.

Get a couple of opinions from a couple of Orthos. This will give you a better feel for the doctor. It shouldn't cost you anything for the initial consultation so make sure to find one that you feel good about.

Finding A Lower Price On Dental Work

Usually, the average cost for braces for both the lower and upper teeth comes in at around $5,000. Obviously this price varies depending on the level of experience of the orthodontist and the location. Make sure that you find out the price before you act on anything.

This price might be a bit much for the average patient to pay, and in most cases will not be covered by dental insurance unless there is a health related issue involved. This can leave some wishing to have treatment, left behind.

Some Health plans might cover you, but make sure that you check that out before you agree to the treatment. You can end up paying out of your pocket if you don't do your due diligence beforehand.

There is an option for those who still would like to have the work done. Dental schools usually offer a low-cost orthodontic treatment. The down side to this is that it is done by an Orthodontist in training, but is closely monitored by an experienced practitioner. If the inexperience does not bother you this option might suit you best. If it does you might want to search out a different option.

Another such option is sometimes offered by dental chains. They might have specials that will reduce your costs. The downside to this option is that the list of dentists available for this treatment is very small and they are usually the newer inexperienced ones.
