In the era of convenience, mail-order orthodontics is growing a following and gaining attention. Our team at Lozman Orthodontics believes in patient education so you can make well-informed orthodontic decisions for yourself or your loved one. We want to give you a realistic look at what you won’t get with mail-order orthodontics so you can confidently choose if in-person or online treatment is for you.
What Is Mail-Order Orthodontics?
Mail-order orthodontics is an orthodontic treatment that comes directly to your door. These services typically involve a DIY impression kit sent to your home, which you use to create a mold of your teeth. You then send your mold back to the company, and your online provider creates a series of clear aligners based on this mold. While this process may seem straightforward, it’s essential to understand that orthodontic treatment is complex. When you opt out of in-person care, you lose essential services that impact the quality of your treatment.
Personalized Treatment Programs Without The DIY Projects!
Most agree that receiving orthodontic care without leaving your home is convenient and quick, but truthfully, it makes complicated orthodontic work seem deceptively simple.
Before starting and during orthodontic care, your teeth, gums, and jaw must be healthy. Attempting to move the teeth when they are not ready can cause unnecessary pain and damage your smile. Despite submitting your at-home impressions kit and photographs of your mouth, online providers are still missing a lot of crucial information to ensure your treatment is safe and efficient. Consequently, you are at an increased risk of unwanted side effects and results.
When you become a Lozman Orthodontics, you will not have to complete messy at-home impressions or take photographs yourself. Our fully trained staff will conduct all necessary processes for you, so you can sit back, relax, and feel confident that your assessment is conducted with complete and accurate information. Dr. Michael Lozman and Dr. Robin Lozman will conduct a thorough examination with the aid of X-rays, digital scans, and professional orthodontic photographs, all things that mail-order orthodontics do not offer.
Once we have all the necessary information, our orthodontists will create a personalized treatment plan that will address your concerns and provide results flattering to your unique facial structure. If necessary, they’ll help you improve the health of your mouth before beginning treatment.
We Offer Multiple Treatment Options For All Needs!
All direct-to-consumer orthodontic programs only offer one treatment type (clear aligners) and most exclusively offer treatment to those 18 and older. However, clear aligners, like the industry-leading Invisalign brand we offer, are not the best option for every patient, and sometimes treatment is necessary for younger patients.
At Lozman Orthodontics, we aim to be able to help as many people as possible in Latham and the surrounding communities. We provide multiple treatment options to patients of all ages to reach that goal. In addition to Invisalign, we offer SPEED self-ligating metal braces and Allure Ortho Essence and 3M™ Clarity clear braces to children, teens, and adults. Various options permit us to treat various needs of the teeth and jaw, ranging from mild to severe, and allow patients to have treatment that fits their orthodontic needs and lifestyle seamlessly.
Protect The Piggy Bank!
Providing quality orthodontic care and helping our patients to achieve it is something we pride ourselves on at Lozman Orthodontics. We don’t ever want a community member to feel they cannot pursue life-changing treatment with us because of cost.
We also believe in transparency. After your initial consultation, where we determine what your treatment program will entail, our financial team will break down the cost of treatment with you. You deserve to know what you’re paying for and why! Whenever you’re ready to begin your care, we will submit and communicate with your insurance on your behalf to help you maximize your benefits before you receive a bill.
If your insurance covers only some or none of your total cost, don’t worry! We are happy to work with you. We want your question of, “How can I afford this?” to turn into, “Wow! I can’t believe I thought I couldn’t afford this!”
We Pay It Forward!
Dr. Robin Lozman and Dr. Michael Lozman know they would not be able to go to their dream job every day without their community’s continued and unwavering support, so they make sure to give back.
When you become a Lozman Orthodontics patient, you are not investing solely in yourself but in your community too. Some organizations we partner with and donate to include Mohawk & Hudson Humane Society, All Girls Inc., South End Children’s Cafe, and Folds Of Honor.
