Straight Facts About Braces Cost and Choices

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

When you or your child needs braces, you have a lot questions. You might be wondering about two of the most common concerns: What are the different types of treatments? and How much do braces cost? Find these answers and more in this helpful dental guide.

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the original and have remained the most common, but they’re now smaller and more comfortable than ever. They use stainless steel brackets and wires to shift the teeth to a better position. While they may be more noticeable than other choices, traditional metal braces can be used for all types of dental corrections and they are the most affordable braces available.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are metal, but they’re attached to the back of the teeth so they’re completely hidden from view. These offer the strength of metal braces with the discretion of ceramic and invisible types. Yet not all orthodontists offer these braces because their placement involves special training. Also, lingual braces cost more than traditional metal on the front of teeth, but their undetectable placement often justifies the higher cost for those seeking inconspicuous correction.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces range from tooth-colored to almost translucent, so they are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. It’s important to realize that the ceramic brackets are stain-resistant, but the elastic ties stain easily. However, these ties are replaced at adjustments to eliminate that problem. Ceramic braces are a popular choice among adults who desire more discretion, but they also have disadvantages. Ceramic braces are not as strong as the metal type and these braces cost more than metal, but their aesthetic and cosmetic benefits make them very appealing.

Invisalign® Invisible Braces

Invisalign braces are practically invisible. Unlike traditional braces bonded to the teeth, Invisalign braces are invisible plastic aligners that are removed while eating and brushing. Since they lack sharp metal brackets and wires, Invisalign braces are extremely comfortable and ideal for people who are self-conscious about wearing braces. Yet Invisalign is mainly for adults and for people without severe dental problems. With all of these benefits, how much do braces cost? Invisalign braces cost more than other choices, but many feel that their discretion and comfort make them worth the extra expense.

Getting Affordable Braces

It is difficult to say just how much braces cost because the price depends on the case and the place. Braces cost can vary by the severity of the dental problems, the choice of treatment, and the location of the practice you visit. Orthodontists in big cities and certain states have higher overhead, which means higher prices for you. Some dental insurance may help cover the costs, but coverage is often restricted to medical necessity or certain ages. Luckily, there are two smart strategies for handling the cost of braces.

  1. CareCredit: This is a personal healthcare credit card for financing healthcare treatments. It offers exclusive financing options, convenient monthly payments, and more than 175,000 US healthcare providers accept it.
  2. DentRite®: This is a dental savings plan that delivers significant savings on dental treatments. It offers both individual and family membership options, limitless usage, and everyone is accepted in the plan.
