The Remarkable Return on Your Orthodontic Investment Milton, GA
girl with metal braces

It’s easy to complain about the cost when talking about braces for your child. Metal braces, clear aligners and other orthodontic treatments and oral appliances do carry a notable expense. However, don’t dismiss the return you will be getting on that investment. Orthodontic treatment offers far more than a beautiful smile. Beyond aesthetic goals, you are also improving your child’s health, development and well-being by choosing to straighten their teeth.

Orthodontic treatment in Georgia is a small price to pay when you consider what properly aligned teeth can help your child avoid in their future. While every case and treatment plan is different, those “expensive” braces can prevent your child from the following:

  • Persistent jaw pain
  • An inability to eat or chew comfortably
  • Breathing problems
  • Swallowing and speech problems
  • Embarrassment
  • Poor dental health
  • Low self-esteem
  • Serious physical health problems
  • Freely laughing or smiling
  • Distraction from play and learning
  • Tooth decay
  • Diseased gums
  • Bone destruction
  • TMJ problems
  • Tooth loss

Ways to Alleviate the Burden

Whether it is the cost of treatment, the extra time involved or the dread of wearing metal braces, there are many obstacles that parents and teens face when considering orthodontic treatment. Not only does orthodontic treatment offer priceless benefits in the long-run, but there are also ways to minimize these obstacles in the short-term. Don’t hesitate to ask your orthodontist about flexible payment options and financing plans. There are also many alternatives to metal braces if you want to cut down on office visits or disguise the appearance of your oral appliance, including short-term orthodontics and Invisalign clear aligners.

At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we offer a full menu of orthodontic treatments to help you gain the remarkable benefits of a straighter smile with minimal stress.

Our Patients Reviews

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 Dental 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.
