Question: I will be needing orthodontic services and was told I would need to have a panorex x-ray done as part of them providing me a treatment plan and estimate on orthodontic services. I do not have insurance and I need to know much this is all going to cost me.
Reply: The cost is going to depend on the type of Insurance Plan you have. Sometimes the cost of X-rays for Orthodontic treatment is not covered at all so you need to review your plan benefits. If you do not have Insurance then the cost of any X-rays would depend on what the dentist is charging. Dentist to dentist cost varies and would be hard to say what one charges and why. That would be something you would need to shop out.
A discount plan would be able to help you off set the cost of your orthodontic treatment most discount plans will save you about 20% for that type of service. You do need to go to a dentist in their network. There is no out side network so if you are trying to stay with a current dentist make sure they are in the plan before buying one.

I have a girl friend that say she has an overbite and she feels she very unattractive because of it. She is 16 and is upset that her parents will not let her have braces to correct her bite. I do not see it myself. I really try and tell her no one can see that she has an overbite but she said she looks like a rabbit.

This may seem odd but about three years ago I had braces put on. At the time I had them on I had dental insurance However a year into the treatment and I lost my job and had to get a new one that did not offer me dental insurance.
I started having problems with the Orthodontic dnetal office since they started charging me full price and back charging me saying they never go the money from my insurance. It was many phone calls and much hassle but I prove them wrong. However, they would not continue with my brace care unless I pay them in full for the remaining cost which I did not have.
Little to say I left and never went back, but had these braces on me ever since and never had them adjusted. Now I have dental insurance again but they will not cover me for my braces either since this is preexiting to them. I am at the point that I just want them off. I just not sure where to go to get them off?
