Five ways to make braces affordable for adults in Los Angeles

I have been caring for the people of this city since 1992. Each day I see the tremendous impact that healthy, attractive smiles have on their emotional and physical wellbeing. It is never too late for a patient to have that experience. That is one of the reasons I encourage them to consider orthodontics. Cost is naturally a concern, but here are five ways to make braces more affordable for adults in the Los Angeles area.

1 – Choose Invisalign

I recommend Invisalign for a number of reasons including appearance, comfort, and hygiene. It also makes sense from a financial perspective. This system of transparent aligners is efficient. Each case is different, but a typical treatment plan is about 12 months. That reduces overall cost, and minimizes missed time from work for progress checks.

2 – Dental insurance

Many dental insurance plans cover a portion of the cost for Invisalign treatment. Our helpful front desk staff will assist in obtaining a coverage estimate from your insurance carrier.

3 – Credit card deals

Many credit cards offer cash back on purchases, typically ranging from one to five percent. That can take a noticeable bite out of the total cost of Invisalign treatment.

4 – Flexible spending accounts

If you are eligible for an FSA at your place of employment, take advantage of it for a straighter smile. These plans generally cover Invisalign, allowing you to use several thousand pre-tax dollars toward treatment. For most Americans, that’s a savings of about one-third!

5 – Payment plans

The Downtown Dental team will assist you in applying for third-party financing, such as CareCredit or Lending Club (formerly Springstone). These programs have flexible repayment options, often with zero interest.

I want you to feel the confidence of a gorgeous, straight smile. Call Downtown Dental at 213-620-5777 to discuss the options.

Success Stories

I actually owe a debt to Downtown Dental because they caught my oral cancer. I went to them because I had a bump on my tongue and thankfully they ordered a biopsy immediately (same day). The staff has been wonderful to me (even sending me a get well card during my cancer treatment). They do great work - the crowns are made in the office to save you time - and they are very upfront on pricing. You know exactly what you will pay. They are also very flexible on appointments. And they validate parking! They also have taken COVID precautions very seriously. Very professional and well-organized. Highly recommend them.
The staff here on its own deserves the five stars. Everyone is so friendly and take there time to get to know you as a patient. There very easy to work with on what’s best for you in the long run with insurance and dental care. On top of them making you feel comfortable, you can tell that they actually care about you and your dental health. The parking is also super easy and they validate so you don’t have to pay. I’d highly recommend coming here!
I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
Best experience I have ever had in 40 plus years of Dentist visits. Crazy friendly people, every last one of them. Such a pleasant experience. If you need a Dentist this is the place to go. The Doctor is awesome as well.
This place has been my dentist my whole life and I won't consider going anywhere else. Everyone is nice and accommodating and the doctor knows his stuff.

Oral Cancer Screening Video

Oral Cancer Screening Video
Every patient at Downtown Dental undergoes a thorough check for oral cancer and other dental health issues. This video shows how it’s done. Transcript
Here at downtown Dental, we take oral health and cancer screenings very serious. This month is November and it's the month of oral health cancer awareness and screenings. Every patient we examined thoroughly, we look and we check their lips, tongue and we check for any abnormalities or bumps. At home you should also check to make sure that everything looks okayLeava is going to demonstrate what in oral health cancer screening is and what we examine. So, we first start off by checking all the lips. We make sure that the lips look healthy and that we palpate them, which is touching them and making sure that there's nothing anormal. Then we go into the mucosa and check the cheeks. We're going to look and check the hard palate as well as the soft palate. This might tickle a little. We checked the posterior of the tongue. Do you, Viola, go ahead and say, aaaaaa. We check the lateral sides of the tongue. Go ahead and sit your tongue showed up great. And we also check the floor of the mouth. Get the tongue to the roof of your mouth. Good all clear. Oral cancer is especially important to check the patients who are smokers, alcohol drinkers and we thank you for watching the video.
