How Much Do Braces Cost?

Traditional braces can be used in a variety of ways to help patients achieve a straighter smile. The cost of treatment varies accordingly. For example, a case involving only minor misalignment will likely cost less than a case that requires significant tooth movement. Dr. Kellyn Hodges and her team can provide an estimated braces cost when you visit one of our Philadelphia, PA-area offices. Your doctor will assess the state of your smile and determine the extent of treatment you need. Meanwhile, our staff can speak to your insurance provider to determine how much coverage applies to your treatment.

Your insurance plan and the severity of your dental misalignment will have the most significant influences on the cost of your treatment.

How To Calculate the Cost of Braces

Before placing your braces, your orthodontist will conduct a thorough review of your dental health and alignment to design an effective, personalized treatment plan. Through this process, your practitioner can also provide an accurate estimate for the cost of your braces, considering:

  • The expected length of your treatment: In most cases, braces will stay on your teeth for 12 to 24 months. However, seriously misaligned teeth may require braces for a longer period. During this time, you will need to make routine visits to our office so that we can tighten the wire and observe your progress. Therefore, a longer treatment will result in higher costs.
  • The complexity of your procedure: If you have complex orthodontic issues, we may need to take additional measures to achieve your desired results. Advanced options like extractions or a TAD (temporary anchorage device) will increase total costs.
  • Additional treatments required: Aside from orthodontic care, you may require restorative treatment, such as a filling, before you can receive your braces. In other cases, you may want teeth whitening after your braces come off. These options are priced separately.

The Importance of Investing in Traditional Braces

Braces are an investment that many have found worthwhile due to the improved oral health and self-confidence this treatment can provide. With straighter teeth, brushing and flossing become easier, which means you will likely face a lower risk of tooth decay and gum disease. If suffer from overall bite misalignment, braces can reduce your risk for developing TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. In the long run, you could save a significant amount of money on restorative care thanks to the results braces can provide. Braces will also dramatically improve your appearance, with priceless benefits for your confidence and overall quality of life.

How Much Will Insurance Cover?

Depending on your insurance plan, you may be eligible for some coverage of your orthodontic treatment. Our doctors and staff will work together to illustrate your need for braces, and we have vast experience working with insurance companies to secure the maximum coverage available. Meanwhile, if any out-of-pocket costs remain, we offer convenient financing options that can help you comfortably afford orthodontic therapy using traditional braces.
