Braces are an investment in the future for patients of all ages. In particular, parents want to find the best orthodontic care to help improve the dental health of their children. One of the most commonly asked questions by prospective patients is, “How much do braces cost?” There are a number of variables factoring into the cost of braces, including the type of treatment, age of the patient, complexity of the case and sometimes types of braces patients opt for.
Every patient is unique and each requires a treatment based on their specific dental needs. The treatment required to address your particular issue greatly affects how much your braces cost. The age of the patient also plays a factor, as braces are less expensive for children. This is due to differences in bone adaptation between children and adults, and in general longer treatment time required repositioning their fully entrenched permanent dentition.
There are price differences between metal, ceramic and clear braces.
Ceramic braces are less visible in the mouth than metal braces, making them slightly more expensive. With their near invisibility, clear braces are among the most expensive and popular types of braces.
The most popular alternative to traditional braces can be found with innovations in the Invisalign system. Instead of using wires, Invisalign employs cutting edge technology to produce removable aligners that are nearly invisible and gently reposition your teeth. The cost of Invisalign is usually comparable to standard braces, making them a popular option for adults who want to improve their smiles without anyone noticing their treatment.
