Why is orthodontic treatment important?

 

There is no doubt that orthodontic treatment enhances self-esteem and can actually improve your quality of life. However, there are also other important reasons for considering orthodontic treatment for what may appear to be minor problems because, if left untreated, they can affect the health of the gums and teeth.  

 

Orthodontics is growth related and it is important that treatment is carried out at the appropriate stage of physical development if the optimum treatment outcome is to be achieved. Most people are very aware of how teeth look and an adult or child who feels unattractive because of crooked teeth or unaligned jaws may become self-conscious and preoccupied with his or her appearance.

 

Orthodontic treatment also plays an important role in improving overall oral health and we, Orthodontic House, can benefit you or your child by giving you a lifetime of healthy, attractive smiles.

What will it cost?

 

Dr Rumbak will make a careful evaluation before prescribing any treatment or discussing cost. Having made the assessment you will be given a confidential written quotation for the treatment.


Once treatment begins patients will be seen on a regular basis to ensure proper progress and in many cases small problems can be corrected over a short period of time. Most payments may be spread out over the length of the treatment. Treatment costs have actually risen very little over the years because of advancements in techniques and improvements in materials.
