I’ve been blessed with triplets. I love them to pieces, but based on how their adult teeth are coming in I can already tell all three are going to need braces. Is there any way to make this more affordable?
You are one busy mamma. When you have three that need braces simultaneously, it’s imperative you plan carefully in order to find the most affordable way to get their braces. Here are some options for you.
Affordable Braces Through Timing
Much of the cost of orthodontic work is based on how long they’ll be in braces and will need to be seen. There’s generally a timing when they’re young enough for their bite to be malleable but not so young that it will actually be counterproductive.
Affordable Braces Through Precision
Another option, if you need to wait until they’re a little older is to use Invisalign. With traditional braces, it’s mostly guesswork as to how long their treatment will take. Invisalign is precisely planned by a sophisticated software program. You’ll know exactly how long the process will take and what the total cost is from the beginning. If you’re talking about younger teenagers, make sure they’re responsible. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is removable. It’s up to your children to wear them the prescribed amount of time as well as not lose them.
Affordable Braces Through Payment Plans
Some dentists offer in-office payment plans. Those that don’t almost always offer Care Credit. It’s a medical “credit card” of sorts, which offers low and even no-interest payment plans to patients getting medical and dental care. It can only be used for health/dental procedures.
In addition to their more than fair interest rate, they also don’t penalize patients for paying extra or even paying it off early. It’s a fantastic way to get your work done and pay it off in more do-able chunks of money.
