Reduce Your Braces Cost (and get Great Care!) by Finding the Right Orthodontist

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

Braces offer benefits at every age in many ways. Along with straightening teeth, they can correct concerns with the bite and jaw, prevent problems from developing, and make people proud of their smiles. But the only way to get treatment is to visit an orthodontist. Learn how to choose the right orthodontist and make braces more affordable.

Choosing the Right Specialist

Orthodontists are dental specialists whose focus is on straightening teeth, improving the bite, and aligning the jaw. Your child’s pediatric dentist or your general dentist can recommend an orthodontist to you, if they think that care could help you. But if you’d like to compare different types of care—and find answers to the question, “How much do braces cost?”—you may want to visit a few orthodontists to find the best one for you or your child. Set up some initial consultations and consider these key points:

  • Orthodontist’s education and training
  • Number of years in practice
  • References from other patients
  • Estimate of how much do braces cost, including follow-up expenses
  • Length of recommended treatment
  • Affordable braces payment options
  • Frequency of appointments
  • Flexible office hours
  • Friendliness of staff
  • Number of orthodontists in the practice
  • Overall comfort of you or your child

Figuring Out How Much Braces Cost

It’s important to understand that the answer to the question, How much do braces cost?, can vary greatly by personal needs, type of treatment, and location of care. Your orthodontist will discuss all of your options for treatment, but the four basic types of braces are the traditional metal brackets, tooth-colored ceramic braces, lingual braces placed on the back of teeth, and invisible braces. Ceramic and invisible braces may be more discreet, but the traditional metal brackets are the most affordable braces. Happily, they’ve been redesigned to be much smaller and a lot less noticeable.

Making Affordable Braces Possible

The cost may be covered by certain dental insurance, but not everyone has dental insurance and many need financial assistance to cover braces cost. Fortunately, there are two ways to manage the cost. The first is CareCredit, a healthcare credit card that lets you finance various health procedures. It features exclusive financing options, convenient monthly payments and it’s accepted by more than 175,000 providers in the U.S. There is also a dental savings plan called DentRite®, which provides substantial savings on numerous dental treatments. Everyone is accepted and usage is unlimited, plus there are different membership options for individuals and families.

With these savings solutions, you can get affordable braces from the orthodontist you choose.
