Like many topics in the health care industry, Orthodontics has many myths! At Unionville Orthodontics we are here to help clear the air and debunk these myths.
#1: Anyone who provides braces or aligners is an orthodontist.
This myth is certainly false! Some general dentists or online companies can offer braces or aligners as a service. However, an orthodontist has additional years of education and training at an accredited residency in order to call themselves an “Orthodontist” or “Orthodontic Specialist”.
#2: Orthodontists are so expensive.
At Unionville Orthodontics we work to customize our patients’ treatment plans for the best possible outcomes. Fees are a result of the complexity of each case. Some cases are more simple and take a few months to treat. While more difficult cases could take a couple of years. We work to offer payment plans to make treatment affordable for our patients.
#3: Orthodontic treatment is purely cosmetic.
Orthodontic treatment goes beyond just cosmetic appearance. The most obvious result is an improved appearance, but there is more to it than meets the eye! A better function (biting, chewing and speaking) is also improved!
