The 6 Benefits of Seeing an Orthodontist In Your Local Community

Have you ever wondered which kind of orthodontic treatment would be best for you? There are so many different treatments out there, as well as easy options where you can just order your orthodontics online. While that might sound simple, it’s only one approach to getting a dazzling smile. Thankfully at Thacker Orthodontics, you have an entire team of professionals to help you determine which treatment works best for your needs and get you started right away. 

Don’t mistake an ‘easy’ online option for the healthiest and best option! Let us share with you our top 6 reasons why we think you’ll love seeing an orthodontist near you. And if you’re in the Cincinnati or Hillsboro areas, Thacker Orthodontics could be the right place for you!

1. Choose From Multiple Treatment Options

As we mentioned before, there are many treatments available now, some of which just can’t be ordered online. From metal braces and ceramic braces, to Invisalign and sleep apnea treatments, Thacker Orthodontics has what online sellers don’t. 

We consult with each of our patients as they determine whether they need braces, want more discreet braces, or choose Invisalign retainers instead. Each option works well and will fit with some patients more than others, so don’t hesitate to share your questions and concerns about each treatment therapy when you talk to Dr. Jim or Dr. MaryEvan

2. Focus on Health and Cosmetics

Having beautiful and healthy teeth go hand in hand when you choose to do our treatment at a local orthodontist office versus an online retailer. It’s important to have a board-certified orthodontist oversee your treatment every step of the way to ensure that every part of your teeth, gums, jaws, and nerves remain healthy while shifting and aligning during treatment. 

Even if your goal is simply to have straighter teeth, you need to know the risks of straightening them with mail-order aligners rather than an orthodontist. Some patients have reported damaged nerves, chronic jaw pain, and even tooth loss as a result. We say it just isn’t worth the risk, and instead, head to a local office to meet with an orthodontist and their trained professional staff. This will help keep you safe and healthy while still crafting the smile of your dreams. 

3. Support a Local Business

It’s no small thing to invest your dollars in a local business. Local businesses are often the heart of communities big and small, and when people commit to paying for their services locally, they are boosting the economy and making it possible for even more people to get the vital dental healthcare services they need! 

4. Early Interventions

The idiom that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure is certainly true when it comes to orthodontics. Many problems that persist for adults would have easy solutions for children. This is because when bones and teeth are still growing, they are easier to shift and align. That means if a child has a jaw malocclusion or a misaligned bite, then an orthodontist can often adjust their bite as it grows! For an adult, it sometimes comes down to surgery or other more drastic interventions to solve these kinds of problems. 

All of this to say, start bringing your child in to see Dr. Jim or Dr. MaryEvan starting at age 7! Though this might seem young, this will give them plenty of time to get started on a treatment plan that will save your child some serious issues later on. If you have your own dental issues that were never addressed as a child, don’t worry. We can still work with you to help get your teeth into the healthiest alignment possible. 

5. Enjoy Our Convenient Location

One of the excuses that some people give for avoiding the orthodontist is that they don’t want to make the drive over to the office. After three years of pandemic measures and stay-at-home orders, it’s no wonder that we have all gotten used to ordering things to us rather than going out to do things!

That’s why Dr. Jim and Dr. MaryEvan have set up their practice with two convenient locations in Cincinnati and Hillsboro! A short drive is well worth it to experience their excellent level of care and support. If you don’t try, then you won’t know just how convenient it is, so call and set up your own free consultation appointment today to come in for a visit.

6. Personalized Financing

Last but certainly not least, it’s important that orthodontic treatment is affordable for you and your family. While the overall cost of treatment might seem daunting, when you break it down into affordable monthly payments, you will see just how easy it is to pay for the care your family needs. We work with each patient to create a plan that works just for them, so don’t expect a one-size-fits-all approach. Talk to our professional office staff who have been working with patients and insurance companies for years to make payments possible.
