The Cost of Braces Isn’t Just Measured in Dollars…

When you think about braces costs or the cost of Invisalign® or Spark clear aligners, there’s more to consider than the financial aspect! How much money do you think a healthy mind and healthy body are worth? Many people would say they’re priceless! That’s one of the reasons why 9 million Americans undergo orthodontic treatment every year.

Orthodontic treatment at Nth Degree Orthodontics is truly life changing. It improves your quality of life from the inside out. From increased self esteem and improved bite functionality to even possibly increasing your ability to breathe and improving your quality of sleep- aligning your teeth can have so many extensive benefits! 

It’s safe to say the benefits of braces and Invisalign extend much further than the appearance of the smile.  

Measuring the cost of braces and Invisalign means measuring the true impact of orthodontic treatment!

All About Braces and Invisalign 

Braces have evolved from traditional, metal braces! We are always adopting the latest technologies to provide our patients with the most comfortable, effective and convenient treatment options available. Choose from advanced, self-ligating Damon™ braces (clear and metal), as well as two types of clear aligners – Invisalign and Spark

There are several benefits of braces for adults, children and teens. Here are the common conditions our orthodontists can treat with braces and clear aligners:

  • Poor bite conditions (overbite, underbite, open bite, cross bite)
  • Tooth misalignments (crooked, crowded, or gapped)
  • Poor self esteem or lack of confidence 

Once one of our orthodontists (Dr. Nease, Dr. Thomas, Dr. Horvath or Dr. Higginbotham) completes your complimentary exam, we’ll help you decide which treatment is best for you! Depending on your orthodontic condition, your smile goals and your preferences, one form of braces may be better suited for you than another.

The Cost of Not Getting Braces 

Believe it or not, many people who haven’t received orthodontic treatment don’t realize they’re not living their greatest quality of life! There are common symptoms associated with dental misalignments and tooth misalignments that you may not be aware of.

Common symptoms of poor orthodontic conditions include:

  • Mouth-breathing
  • Snoring
  • Popping, cracking, or locking of the jaw
  • Jaw pain or soreness when biting or chewing
  • Clenching or grinding of the teeth

These symptoms may be normal for you, but they can indicate a narrow palate, misalignments of the jaws or teeth, TMJ disorder, or another condition.

The further you allow a problematic orthodontic condition to progress, the more severe the condition becomes. As a condition worsens, it can require a more invasive treatment (like jaw surgery or tooth extractions) to correct. 

If you aren’t quite sure whether you require orthodontic treatment or could benefit from treatment, we encourage you to schedule your complimentary exam or complete a virtual smile assessment without leaving your couch! Your first visit to our office comes at no cost to you, no risk, and no obligation. So why not?
