Getting braces for your child can seem costly. However, they’re more affordable when you know your options and your child visits the orthodontist early.
Your child’s smile is important, and braces can correct major issues with your child’s bite and jaw. It’s important that you know what to look for and what to expect so you can find the best and cheapest braces available.
Always check with your local orthodontist first, and ask about fees and payment options before getting braces for your kid. There are a number of ways to cover the cost of braces.
Some practices accept Medicaid, but it depends on the state you live in. Usually, Medicaid will not pay for braces unless they are considered medically necessary. You can contact a local dentist or orthodontist to see if braces are covered by Medicaid in your state.
You can sometimes find reduced rates through dental schools. In this case, the dental students practice under the close watch of professional orthodontists.
The Affordable Care Act offers dental assistance plans for children. However, the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight notes that in most cases, braces that are not medically necessary are not covered under the Affordable Care Act.
Check with your child’s dentist to see what is covered in your state.
Orthodontic treatment with dental braces costs approximately $3,000 to $7,000. Some insurance providers will help cover the cost, but if yours doesn’t, you need an orthodontist that accepts multiple payment methods.
The dentists and orthodontists at Kool Smiles have years of experience working with kids and know what it takes to make your child’s smile healthy and happy. Every Kool Smiles location accepts many payment options including cash, credit card, or CareCredit.
We also accept most insurance providers, Medicaid, and TRICARE for general dental care.
Kool Smiles braces begin at $3,400 for an 18-month treatment, though the cost depends on your child’s teeth. When your child visits Kool Smiles for an exam, we can give you a better estimate of the cost.
