It’s so important to have a clear understanding of orthodontics if and when you are considering starting your journey to a beautiful smile. You would be amazed at some of the beliefs that people have about the entire orthodontics and braces experience. So, in the spirit of accuracy let’s take a look at some common misconceptions.

Common Misconceptions Only children wear braces. While you may see children in the Mark Feinberg Orthodontics reception area, adults of all ages often seek orthodontic treatment with us, as well. Typically, 15-20 percent of orthodontic patients are adults. There are various factors that can cause your teeth or bite to be misaligned, and it’s never too late to seek orthodontic treatment to address them. Aligning the bite can be vital to preserving teeth and preventing them from wearing down. We see so many patients that have this problem and orthodontic intervention is invaluable.

Braces have to be obvious or even unsightly This couldn’t be further from the truth. Adults and teens often care deeply about their appearance. Many adults don’t want to go to the office or even socialize with a mouth full of metal braces. For some teens, peer pressure may come into play and they might be self-conscious and concerned about what their peers might say. The fact is that metal, while still available and an excellent choice for many, there are other options to align crooked teeth. One of those is a clear plastic solution like SureSmile or Invisalign aligners. These plastic trays are can be virtually invisible to others.

At your orthodontic office in Shelton/Stratford/Trumbull/Monroe/Fairfield in addition to clear aligner therapy, we offer clear cosmetic braces that are a terrific choice for many of our patients as well. Our orthodontic practice is also one of the select few that has the experience and expertise in treating patients with SureSmile lingual braces(braces behind the teeth). These are robotically, precision wires that make personalized care the ultimate differentiator from other orthodontic offices. At Mark Feinberg, we can help make the right choice for your needs.

Orthodontics is too expensive With the many orthodontic options and payment plans available, orthodontic treatments have become an affordable option. A comprehensive consultation at our office can help you make your preferred orthodontic choice fit within your budget.
