Straight teeth and a healthy bite have a huge impact on your oral health and even affect your overall health, not to mention they boost your self-confidence. The thing is, braces can be pricey. Here at True Smile Orthodontics in Bixby, Ohio, we want to provide you with options that won’t break your budget. Here are some tips:

1. Create a payment plan. True Smile Orthodontics will help you come up with the best plan for your needs. We accept most forms of insurance as well as SoonerCare, cash, check, credit cards, CareCredit, Simple Pay and Ortho Bank. Call 918-364-2222 to discuss your customized payment plan. Here’s some more detailed information about two good options for those with limited funds:

  • Care Credit – This is a healthcare credit card that helps pay out-of-pocket expenses not covered by insurance. There is no interest if paid within 2 years.
  • Sooner Care – This is a health coverage program funded by the state and federal government that helps pay some or all medical bills. It’s free of cost for those who meet the income guidelines, which are available online.
  • 2. Choose traditional braces. While Invisalign and lingual braces are innovative and fashionable ways to correct your bite, traditional braces get the job done and are usually more affordable. They are also lighter weight than they used to be.
