How to Research Your Orthodontic Treatment | Buchart + Wachs Orthodontics

Orthodontist Lexington


Beginning orthodontic treatment is a significant decision, both in terms of time and finances. Researching your options ensures you choose the right orthodontic treatment plan. As you prepare for your consultation with Buchart + Wachs Orthodontics, here are some key considerations:

Types of braces
The days of only traditional metal braces are over. Alongside metal braces, you may have options like:

  • Ceramic braces: Less noticeable than metal, but require diligent maintenance.
  • Lingual braces: Invisible from the outside as they are attached behind your teeth, but can be challenging to clean.
  • Clear aligners: Popular with adults, removable for eating, but may not be suitable for children and require high compliance.

Treatment time
Many wonder, “How soon can I get them off?” The answer depends on factors like age, teeth condition, and treatment type, with most plans lasting 12 to 24 months.

Out-of-pocket costs
Check your dental insurance benefits before your consultation. Ask about coverage for the braces you’re considering and inquire about potential additional costs for retainers and aftercare.

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Research your options, but meeting with our experienced orthodontist is the best way to find the right braces for your confident smile. Schedule your consultation with Buchart + Wachs Orthodontics today and start your journey to a new smile.
