Know What Determines Braces Cost to Find Affordable Orthodontics

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

Braces may be a one-stop solution for many dental problems, but they aren’t a one-price-fits-all option. In fact, there are many factors that contribute to the cost of braces and cause it to vary widely. The following are the most popular and prevalent.

Patient’s Individual Situation

When answering the question, “How much do braces cost?”, the extent of your dental problems plays a significant role. Minor dental problems will require less treatment and cost less than major dental corrections. Age has an impact on cost. Children’s braces cost less than braces for adults because their treatment time is often shorter. And, of course, any dental preparation needed for braces will also add to the cost.

Choosing the Right Braces Style for You

Braces have come a long way from the bulky metal models of the past. Today, the four major kinds are:

  1. Traditional metal brackets—now much smaller than ever before
  2. Tooth-colored ceramic braces
  3. Lingual braces, which are attached to the backs of the teeth
  4. Invisible braces that are removed when eating and brushing

Traditional metal brackets are generally your most affordable orthodontics option, but if you want something a little more discreet, the other types of braces may be worth the higher cost. Talk to your orthodontist, because certain types of braces are only advised for minor dental problems.

Treatment Duration

The length of treatment time will also help determine the braces cost. The cost is related to the amount of correction you need. Since children tend to require less treatment, their braces cost is usually more affordable. Talk to your orthodontist before treatments begin to get a braces cost estimate and how long you will need to wear them.

How Follow-up Factors In

For many people, treatment isn’t over when their braces are removed. They require additional treatment, such as retainers to keep teeth in place and surgical procedures to correct ongoing issues with the jaw and mouth. Ask for these to be included in the total braces cost, so you’re not surprised by any unexpected expenses.

Location, Location, Location

Did you know that the site of your orthodontist’s practice is part of the equation of how much braces cost? In certain cities and states, the average price of treatment is greater because the cost of living is higher. This affects the orthodontist’s operating expenses, which are passed on to the patient. If possible, compare specialists in different cities to find the most affordable orthodontics.

How to Accommodate the Cost of Braces

Certain dental insurance plans may help cover what braces cost. But for people without this insurance coverage or who need help with figuring out how to manage the cost of braces, there are two simple solutions to getting affordable orthodontics.

One choice is DentRite®, which is a dental savings plan that gives enrollees automatic savings on many dental treatments. Perks of the plan include:

  • No one gets declined, everyone is accepted,
  • Membership options for families and individuals
  • Unlimited use

Another choice is CareCredit, a personal healthcare credit card lets you finance numerous health treatments. The card features:

  • Convenient monthly payments
  • Special financing options
  • Accepted by 175,000 U.S. providers
