4 Things You Won’t Get With Mail Order Orthodontics

Here at Central Virginia Orthodontics, we believe that the best patient is an informed patient. You may have seen ads online for quick and inexpensive mail-order orthodontic treatments. It makes sense, as we live online more and more, that a few people out there would see an opportunity to take advantage of the natural inclination to save time and money. But what are mail-order orthodontics? And what are the hidden costs of skipping the high-quality, personalized care found with your local specialist? Dr. Eric Baugher and Dr. Jennifer Claiborne are here to answer your questions. Let’s get to it! 

Why do people choose mail-order orthodontics? 

It’s understandable why you might be curious about mail-order orthodontic treatments. Maybe they seem less expensive, or the idea of not having to go in to see the orthodontist seems appealing. We get it! 

The idea of having your or your child’s teeth and jaw issues straightened out without having to devote the time and money to a series of in-person meetings makes perfect sense.  

 Who doesn’t want to save money these days? And who has time to spare? 

The fact is, there are plenty of essential parts of the process you’re missing out on when you go online for your orthodontic needs. 

Why should you stick to in-person treatment? 

Central Virginia Orthodontics has the trained professionals required to provide you with numerous essential ingredients for a successful orthodontic journey. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why: 

Face-to-face Treatment Plans 

Unlike online, in-person orthodontic care includes personalized visitation with a trained specialist. Dr. Baugher and Dr. Claiborne are board certified by the American Association of Orthodontists. They will quickly put you at ease while providing an individual approach to your process that will ensure a great-looking and healthy smile!

Personalized, Affordable care

While the promise of a cheap and easy solution sounds appealing, the lack of personal and specialized care can lead to more problems than you might think! Central Virginia Orthodontics knows you’re on a budget; that’s why we offer free consultations and will always work with you to find the right payment plan for your needs.

And since every mouth is different, there’s no reason to leave it to chance and a grainy cell phone photo. Make sure you’re being attended to by a caring professional like Dr. Baugher or Dr. Claiborne, who can make the sorts of adjustments that online offerings will miss. 

Moment-to-moment updates 

Oftentimes, treatment plans may need adjusting between visits based on reactions to your realignment procedures, newly-discovered issues, or a variety of other factors. That’s entirely normal and nothing to worry about! 

However, with remote orthodontic options, making the necessary changes is impossible as your teeth shift and move. This can lead to unsatisfactory outcomes or even create new problems. 

Dr. Baugher and Dr. Claiborne are on-hand and ready to make personalized adjustments to your care that you can’t get online. Some things are just too important to leave up to chance! 

Full-spectrum care 

Based on the specific needs of you or your loved one, it may be necessary to use equipment and procedures that aren’t available at all online.  

Traditional braces are often required to deal with more advanced cases of malocclusion of the teeth and jaw misalignment.  

We will always provide you with the least invasive care possible, but never at the expense of ensuring you get the care you need to set you up for success. There’s a reason traditional braces are still around – Sometimes, there’s no substitute.
