5 Ways to Make Orthodontic Treatment More Affordable Milton, GA
Orthodontic Treatment Atlanta GA

If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, orthodontics can offer priceless benefits towards your self-confidence, oral health and overall well-bring. Still, orthodontics requires a notable investment which can make many people shy away from the treatment their smile needs to look its best. However, before you assume that orthodontics is too expensive for your budget, you should know that there are ways to make treatments more affordable. In addition, not all treatment options cost the same. The cost of your orthodontic treatment is dependent on factors such as the type and length of your proposed treatment, as well as whether or not you have a dental insurance plan with orthodontic coverage.

Regardless of your estimated cost of braces or aligner therapy, here are some ways you can make orthodontics more affordable:

#1 Take advantage of pre-tax savings accounts.
By contributing your pre-tax dollars to a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account, you can help cover a significant portion of your patient co-payment.

#2 Re-evaluate your budget priorities.
Many patients find that they can move resources around in their overall budget to free up funds for orthodontic treatment. When doing so, carefully consider the purchases that you do not need immediately and recognize braces as a life-long investment towards your self-esteem and dental health.

#3 Check your insurance plan.
If you have dental insurance, it is important that you find out whether or not your plan offers orthodontic benefits, especially when it comes to dependents and students up to a certain age. Next, make sure your orthodontist is an in-network provider for your plan to maximizes your savings.

#4 Consider a Payment Plan
Whether you have insurance or not, many dental offices can help you manage your out-of-pocket costs of treatment with customized payment plans. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we have payment plans that are no-fee and 0% interest.

#5 Ask About Special Discounts
You may be surprised to learn about financing specials and discounts offered at your orthodontist’s office. Many of our patients take advantage of our pay-in-full discount of 5% as a book-keeping courtesy.

Is the cost of braces holding you back from getting the straight smile you deserve? Call Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry. We can make your orthodontic treatment fit your budget!

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
