Braces are a time-tested, proven and reliable solution for a wide variety of smile concerns that affect both aesthetics and functionality of the bite. If you’ve spoken to a dentist and they have recommended orthodontic treatment, you may be concerned about the price tag that comes with your new smile. While modern dental solutions can often require significant financial investment, braces are a flexible orthodontic solution that will have a different cost for every patient, depending on the severity of their case. It may be more expensive to get braces for some patients rather than others.

However, it’s important to note that more often than not, the benefits of orthodontic treatment far outweigh the cost.

Factors That Influence the Cost of Braces

How much you should expect to pay for your braces is a discussion you will have with your orthodontist. This will occur prior to agreeing to and beginning your treatment plan. The total cost is dependent upon a number of factors, including:

  • The severity of your case
  • Whether you need additional dental work prior to or after braces
  • Type of braces

Your orthodontist will be able to go over your total treatment plan with you. They will ensure you have the chance to ask any questions. All in the aim that you fully understand everything that is involved in achieving a natural, healthy smile. If you have financial concerns, talk to the appropriate contact at their practice to determine what may be able to work for you.

If your treatment plan is financially impossible for your situation, consider enrolling into a dental insurance plan. You should talk to a representative to verify exact coverage information. However, some plans will help reduce the costs of your braces by as much as 25 or even 50 percent.
