Orthodontics does not know an age limit. While many adults feel embarrassed or overwhelmed by the thought of having to undergo orthodontic treatment, the truth of the matter is that adult orthodontics is very common. In fact, statistics have shown that one in every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21! American River Orthodontics believes in granting a beautiful smile to patients of any age. And while adult braces may seem like a scary idea, consider some of the following before ruling any adult orthodontics treatment in Sacramento, CA out.
Braces can help your future. The age old saying “when you look good, you feel good” certainly applies to your smile. How many times have you been told to dress to impress on an interview? What about on a date or at a social event? Dressing to your best ability means wearing your best accessory, your smile. A smile can change everything about your look, your confidence, and therefore your future Dr. Michael Payne can help you get your best smile in Sacramento, CA today. Braces will straighten your teeth, realign your smile, and help you put your best foot forward in the world.
It doesn’t have to be noticeable. Many adults shy away from treatment for fear of how they will look while in treatment. Adults often associate the idea of braces with traditional metal appliances, the ones that come with adolescent memories. However, in addition to traditional metal braces, American River Orthodontics offers a variety of more fashionable options. These include Invisalign, the clear plastic aligners, and ceramic braces, which are similar to traditional though clearer and less visible. These two alternative take the “awkward teenager” idea out of braces, and put the “glowing smile” in.
The cost won’t kill your wallet. Of course, in today’s economy, cost is important to consider. However, depending on how severe the case, the cost of orthodontic treatment can and will vary. Often, traditional braces will cost upwards of $4,000 (with some less expensive options). Invisalign or clear braces will most likely be a bit higher in price (ranging from about $5,000 to a possible $10,000), but depending on how extensive the treatment may be relatively equivalent. Dr. Michael Payne can assess your case individually and match the price that is right for you. The American River Orthodontics team are eager to make your experience as cost effective as possible. These prices may seem like a pretty penny, however braces will increase your confidence and your overall look for the rest of your life; something that could be defined as a priceless investment. Moreover, your personal health care plans may cover some of the costs. Ask your insurance provider and Dr. Michael Payne for more details.
It is never too late to start straightening your smile. After all, braces can help your job and personal life, without costing too big of a budget.
