Orthodontic Myth #2. Orthodontists are so expensive.
(Explanation provided by the American Association of Orthodontists)
"AAO orthodontists are unique health care providers who carefully customize their patients' treatment plans and as a result, their fees directly reflect the complexity of each case. From simple cases which only take months to treat, to very difficult ones which may take a couple of years, the benefits of having an expert provide your orthodontic care will be well worth it. Most AAO orthodontists offer free consultations and flexible payment plans, and are willing to work with their patients in order to help them achieve a beautiful smile. Trust your smile to a specialist who will safely straighten your teeth and closely monitor your progress to ensure that your bite is the best that it can be."
