At Select Dental Office Torrance our expert staff and doctors offer consultations to all of our patients prior to undergoing any procedure. We make sure all of their dental needs are met and exceed expectations – especially when it comes to teeth alignment.
Anyone who has undergone the treatment for straightening misaligned teeth can tell you how costly it can be and the importance of choosing the right dentist to help with this procedure. Due to poor results paired with high costs, hundreds of thousands of patients have adopted the “do-it-yourself” procedure, which is not a recommended method of teeth care.
One example is Sharon Snowdale Plymouth, a mother and caretaker of three kids. She started a teeth alignment program through SmileDirectClub, and after 3 months had seen little to no results. According to Boston News 5 she said “ you are always the last individual for the dental treatment when your children’s (the youngest son and eldest daughter) treatment of braces are in progress.” It turns out Sharon had been receiving the same aligner every month after spending thousands of dollars with the program. After months of frustration and no response from the teledentistry company she gave up wearing the aligners and her teeth care routine. Research by Boston 25 News revealed many members of congress, attorney generals, and public health boards, believe in passing more regulations to prevent pricing abuse.
Like Snowdale, there are many patients who have experienced similar situations. Now more than ever it is important to choose a dentist that makes patient care their number one priority. Below are 3 important questions you should ask your dentist before starting a teeth alignment program.
Not all teeth alignment methods are the same or recommended for every issue. Talk with your dentist to make sure he is recommending the right treatment for your specific needs.
Before starting your teeth alignment treatment plan, make sure you ask you dentist how long the treatment will take. Certain treatment plans might take longer than others and with this information, you should be able to track your own progress and change in your teeth.
The actual cost of a dental treatment can vary depending on a variety of factors, but you should know how much the procedure will cost before starting a teeth alignment program. Ask you dentist for a quote before starting a alignment program. This will allow you to compare the cost with your expected results.
