Choosing the Right Orthodontic Practice

Lady with clear braces - perfect for adults and teens who are not candidates for Invisalign or ClearCorrect, but still want a more cosmetic option in regard to straightening their teethPicking the right orthodontic office is just as important, if not more so, as selecting the right dentist.

The Selection Process

Most orthodontic practices offer free consultations to give patients an idea of the nature of the treatment required as well as the cost. When you have such a consultation, take a good look around to see how you feel about the office environment and the staff. Once you’re locked into treatment, you’ll be in this place for quite some time.

When searching for a quality braces provider, be prepared to compare a lot of prices. The cost of treatment in a particular location is usually about the same, but it can vary based on the options you’re offered.

It’s Not Just About the Money

However, cost alone shouldn’t be the determining factor. Orthodontia is an area you shouldn’t go too cheap with. If you get it wrong the first time, you could be stuck needing a lot more help later on.

Orthodontic treatment is a complex task requiring both experience and patience. A rushed job can cause damage that will eventually take more time to correct. You need a specialist who will take the time to answer your questions and help you reach your smile goals.

You’ll also want a provider who:

  • Comes with plenty of positive references
  • Works with a variety of patients and orthodontic techniques
  • Is forward-thinking and progressive
  • Takes the time to see each patient personally to follow up on treatment

Ask your dentist and other orthodontic patients in the San Marcos and Oceanside areas to see who everyone is talking about.
