The Cost of Wilckodontics and Your Options for Payment
By Kellyn Hodges on July 07, 2015
Dr. Kellyn Hodges is proud to offer patients in the greater Philadelphia area Wilckodontics, a fast orthodontic alternative to traditional braces. Thanks to Wilckodontics, patients are able to have straight and beautiful smiles in three to eight months.
The speed of Wilckodontics treatment is attractive to many patients, though it does come at a cost. Let's take a moment to consider the cost of Wilckodontics treatment and what that means for patients.
What is the Average Cost of Wilckodontics?
The average cost of Wilckodontics can vary to a certain degree based on a number of factors, which is why offering an average cost or even a general price range may paint an inaccurate picture about the nature of treatment. In general, though, Wilckodontics will cost about twice as much as a traditional orthodontic treatment.
With this in mind, we will be more than happy to provide you with a personalized price quote for Wilckodontics treatment during a consultation, including a breakdown of the various costs involved.
Why Does Wilckodontics Cost That Much?
Wilckodontics costs twice as much as traditional orthodontics because of its speed and effectiveness. Since the procedure is more involved than traditional orthodontics, the cost reflects the level of care that is provided to patients.
Factors Determining the Cost of Wilckodontics
Some of the factors that determine the cost of Wilckodontics treatment include the following:
- The geographic location of the practice
- The orthodontists at the practice and their credentials
- The complexity of the patient's case
- Special promotions unique to individual practices
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Wilckodontics?
Wilckodontics is considered an elective procedure by most insurance providers so it is typically not covered. Since insurance providers and their policies vary, it's worth checking directly with your insurance provider to find out if you happen to qualify for coverage.
Monthly Financing and Payment Options for Wilckodontics
Given the costs associated with Wilckodontics, it's not uncommon for patients interested in the procedure to consider monthly financing to cover the cost of the procedure. These monthly financing options function much like a traditional loan or a credit card. A trusted third-party lender covers the total cost of the Wilckodontics procedure. The patient will then be responsible for paying back the lender on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply to the total cost of care.
Weighing Your Treatment and Financial Options
Wilckodontics is a worthwhile investment for a number of patients given how effective and quick it is, but it may not be the ideal option for you and your needs. During your consultation at our practice, we will be more than happy to go over all of your options for advanced orthodontic care, helping you make a smart and sound decision with regard to your overall dental health and wellness as well as your financial situation.
