Orthodontics certainly aren’t just for teens!
Myth: Orthodontics are way too expensive to afford. If you’ve been hesitating to visit your local orthodontist because you are afraid that you won’t be able to pay your bill, you should know Center for Implant Dentistry offers payment plans, membership plans , and discounts for cash pay to help you get the service you need at an affordable price.
Myth: Orthodontics are just for cosmetic fixes. When most people think about orthodontics, they usually imagine the use of braces to fix issues like overcrowding or shifted smiles. While orthodontics are certainly used for cosmetic purposes, there is much more to orthodontics than what you can see on the surface level.
