Improve the Health and Aesthetics of Your Smile with Our Orthodontist in Annapolis
An orthodontist is a dental specialist dedicated to correcting irregularities in the alignment of the teeth and jaw using braces, aligners, and other dental devices that change the position of the teeth and jaw. Our orthodontist in Annapolis treats children and adults with a wide range of orthodontic issues, including jaw misalignment, crowded or gaping teeth, buck teeth, open bites, crossbites, underbites, and overbites. If you have been asking yourself, “Where can I find an orthodontist near me?” give our office a call to schedule a consultation with our experienced orthodontic specialist.
Braces do much more than simply improve the appearance of your smile. Orthodontic treatment can also improve your overall oral health. If left untreated, orthodontic issues can cause jaw and tooth pain, earaches, and headaches. You are also more prone to cavities and gum disease if your teeth are crowded or misaligned to the point that you cannot brush or floss properly. In extreme cases, untreated jaw problems can even make it difficult to speak or chew properly.
Orthodontic treatment has evolved significantly in recent years. Today’s innovative treatment options are not only more aesthetically pleasing than the traditional metal brackets and wires, but they also give the orthodontist more control over the treatment, which means better results and, in some cases, shorter treatment times. Clear, ceramic, and invisible are just a few of the types of braces available at our office. Our orthodontist will help you choose the right orthodontic appliance for your dental issue, appearance preferences, and budget.
Braces and other types of orthodontic treatment are extremely common for children and teens, and early treatment can help set the stage for a lifetime of good oral health. It is natural for children and teens to feel unsure or even embarrassed about orthodontic treatment. Our team is experienced in providing young patients with the compassion and support that they need as they go through their treatment.
Today’s orthodontic appliances are made from sophisticated materials ranging from virtually invisible to bright and colorful. This makes the treatment process more fun and allows your child to express their individuality. Of course, some of these treatment options do cost more than older versions, so you should consult your insurance or dental discount plan provider to determine if there are any coverage limitations.
Orthodontic treatment is not just for kids anymore. A growing number of adults are turning to orthodontic treatment to alleviate painful conditions involving their teeth and jaws or to improve the appearance of their smile. We offer adult braces in a variety of materials and styles, including versions that are hardly noticeable. If you are an adult suffering from orthodontic issues, our specialist can help you find an appropriate treatment option that will work with your insurance or dental discount plan coverage as well as your lifestyle and aesthetic preferences. Call today to schedule an appointment.
You may be wondering if orthodontic treatment is worth the cost. It is true that orthodontic treatment requires an investment of both time and money. Treatment, however, may help prevent painful and even more expensive dental issues in the future. Since each patient’s dental issues are unique, the cost of treatment can vary significantly from person to person. Prices can even vary from location to location. The severity of your dental issues, the type of materials used to make your orthodontic appliance, and the length of your treatment are just a few of the factors that will determine your braces cost. Once our orthodontic specialist has assessed your dental issues, we will work with you to find an appropriate treatment option that is covered under your insurance or dental discount plan. You may also qualify for one of our flexible financing options that will allow you to pay for your treatment in affordable installments.
We believe that everyone deserves a smile that they can be proud of. Regardless of your age or the extent of your orthodontic issues, our orthodontic specialist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. We want you to be comfortable with your treatment choices from start to finish, and we are always happy to answer any questions or concerns that you might have throughout the process. There is no better time than the present to start your journey toward a healthier and more beautiful smile. Call today to schedule a consultation with our experienced orthodontic specialist.
