The Top 5 Reasons Why People Avoid Seeing the Orthodontist

Dr. Michael J. Wilson, Durham and Oxford’s favorite orthodontist, is devoted to creating your spectacular smile!

Personally, Dr. Wilson has had braces himself. He noticed his self-esteem and confidence improve greatly after braces and orthodontic treatment. He decided to become an orthodontist in Durham and Oxford, NC, because he absolutely loves helping his patients have a similar transformation.

 Patients are afraid it’s going to hurt.

Pain is the number-one reason most people avoid going to the orthodontist. However, modern technology—and choosing the right orthodontist—can ensure that you or your child enjoys a pain-free orthodontic experience.

Patients are afraid it’s going to cost too much.

Not only are most orthodontic procedures more affordable than ever, but insurance, payment plans and a variety of other financing options make this all but a moot point for most patients. Remember, orthodontists aren’t in this to get rich, they’re here to make sure your child’s teeth, smile, and jaw are aligned to make his or her life better—period!

We’re not going to let something like price get in the way of creating a better, safer, healthier smile for you or your child.

 Patients are afraid it’s going to take too long / miss too much school or work.

Regardless of the type of orthodontic procedure you or your child needs, time is of the essence. Modern technology and ease of access allows us to work around your work or your child’s school schedule with minimal absences. After initial visits, and barring the actual procedure itself, most visits and/or adjustments are routine and can take anywhere from fifteen to forty-five minutes.

Patients do not see the need to take action.

Eroding, crooked or unaligned smiles can take time to happen, but the time to act is now. Orthodontic irregularities don’t just heal on their own or disappear if you ignore them. Your or your child’s smile and overall dental health are too important to ignore out of questions of pain, convenience, or even price.

Patients have been treated in the past with an attitude of indifference.

Let’s face it, not all doctors are created equal. Every profession has its “bad apples,” and to say dentistry is the exception would be to write fiction instead of fact. There is no room for indifference when it comes to your or your child’s healthcare. Find an orthodontic specialist that offers not only state of the art technology but state of the art service as well. Orthodontic specialists know what it’s like to sit in the chair, and should provide every opportunity for patients, especially our younger patients, to feel comfortable, safe, and secure in our care.

“This practice is phenomenal!!! They really put the “patient first/customer service first” philosophy in the forefront of their care. Everyone is so welcoming and you really do feel like you’re a valued customer. This has been an amazing experience and I honestly could not imagine doing my Invisalign at another practice!”
