The cost of orthodontics is certainly a consideration, but it should not limit you from getting the quality of care you deserve. At Lineberger Orthodontics, Dr. Matt Lineberger, Dr. Megan Lineberger, Dr. Claire Fedore and Dr. Bhaven Sayania, offer orthodontics for children, teenagers and adults in Charlotte, Elizabeth, Huntersville and surrounding communities in North Carolina.
What is Orthodontics?
Well, orthodontics is pretty awesome as far as we’re concerned, but we are dental nerds at heart. On a more serious note, orthodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on improving a person’s bite and tooth position. So why does this matter? Straightening your teeth and bite helps you take better care of your teeth. Bacteria can find a lot of hiding places when you have crooked teeth, and any little spaces give bacteria a nice, relaxing place to hang out for a while. Orthodontics help with these problems so bacteria have no place to hide.
What are the Benefits of Orthodontics?
- Corrects misaligned and crowded teeth
- Reduces spaces and gaps between the teeth
- Aligns the bite which can reduce jaw fatigue, pain and problems breathing, swallowing, chewing and speaking
- Addresses disproportions of the face caused by improper bite
- Improves the development of permanent teeth and jaw in children
What is Included in the Cost of Orthodontics?
Once we have a treatment plan, we discuss the cost of orthodontics with you. This will include any periodic appointments for re-checks and adjustments to your braces, as well as the braces themselves.
Does the Cost of Orthodontics Include Emergencies and Repairs to My Braces?
We hope you do not experience any emergencies or damage to your braces, as these types of situations are not included in the original quote. If you do need to have your braces repaired or have any other types of emergencies, we may be able to make these appointments more affordable with our in-house financing.
How Can I Make the Cost of Orthodontics More Affordable?
At L.O., we are proud to offer our patients a tiered treatment plan based on what they can afford each month. This approach does not impact the quality of care in any way, but ensures you are able to complete your orthodontic treatment without interruption.
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Orthodontics?
Most dental insurance carriers do offer lifetime orthodontic services in their policies, but this varies. When you come in for your first appointment, our Treatment Coordinator will review your coverage and discuss the out-of-pocket expenses, such as co-payments, deductibles and co-insurance.
