While orthodontic treatment improves the look of your smile, the long-term health benefits of properly aligned teeth can’t be overstated. Crowded and crooked teeth are harder (or even impossible) to clean, can cause serious discomfort, and often result in tooth decay and gum disease among many other oral health issues.
At My Smile Orthodontics, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options to improve your smile and your overall oral health. With proper care and adherence to our treatment plans, it’s possible to straighten your teeth and achieve your dream smile in as little as 6 months!
How do I know if I need orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatment may be right for you if you experience any of the following issues:
- Overbite: Upper teeth sit too far forward.
- Spacing: Gaps or spaces between the teeth.
- Underbite: Lower teeth sit too far forward.
- Crowding: Teeth overlap.
- Crossbite: Bite that doesn’t mesh comfortably.
- Pain: Chronic headaches, jaw pain, or upper back and neck pain.
If you experience any of these issues, it’s important to schedule an orthodontic consultation at our Richmond Hill orthodontic office at your earliest convenience.
Orthodontic Treatment Options
My Smile Orthodontics offers customizable orthodontic care options to address almost any orthodontic condition. The following are a few of the treatment options we provide:
Braces have come a long way since the days of bulky metal brackets and wires. Modern dental braces are smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable than ever. Plus, the effectiveness of braces cannot be denied. The time-tested technology allows us to manipulate teeth with greater ease and precision. That’s why we still recommend braces for both general and more complicated orthodontic issues.
For those who want the strength and precision of braces without all the metal, clear brackets are an elegant, low-profile solution. With clear brackets, most people won’t even realize you’re wearing braces. This option is most popular with older teens and adults.
In recent years, clear aligners have rapidly gained popularity as an effective, convenient, and low-profile orthodontic treatment option. Among the many clear aligners that have emerged onto the market, Invisalign is one of the most popular and most trusted.
The treatment plan involves a series of clears trays that fit snugly over your teeth and gradually shift them into place. These trays can be easily removed when eating and brushing and for special occasions. This makes Invisalign a clear choice for patients in need of a flexible and convenient orthodontic treatment option that won’t alter their appearance.
The Cost of Orthodontic Treatment in Richmond Hill
With a typical insurance plan, orthodontic treatment usually averages between $3000 and $5000+ out-of-pocket. After an oral exam, we would be happy to provide you with an accurate quote so you can find out how much your insurance plan will cover and what your actual out-of-pocket expenses would be. Without insurance, orthodontic treatment typically costs about $4000 to $6000+.
When considering the cost of orthodontics, there are a few things to consider:
- The current condition of your oral health including teeth and gums.
- How much your teeth need to move.
- The kind of orthodontic treatment you choose.
- The length of your treatment.
Because every smile is so different, the only way to find out which treatment is the best solution for you and how much it will cost you out of pocket is to schedule a consultation at our Richmond Hill orthodontic office for a consultation.
