The average cost of braces for children ranges from $3,000 to $7,000 depending on a number of factors—but there are many ways to cut down on the cost and keep you and your child smiling.
Call Kool Smiles today for a no-cost, braces consultation, and we’ll help your find the most affordable option for your child’s needs.
The average cost of braces for children can vary based on how much straightening their teeth need, where you live, and the type of braces your child chooses.
Children’s braces are often a little cheaper than adult braces because less material is needed for their smaller mouths. But how can you stay below the average cost for your child’s braces?
Here are three ways to keep orthodontic costs down:
1. Use Medicaid Coverage
Medicaid coverage can vary from one state to the next, but Medicaid will often cover at least part of the cost of braces.
Find out if you’re eligible for Medicaid and speak with someone at your state’s Medicaid program to find out if braces can be covered.
2. Find a Discount Program
A discount program allows you to pay for dental services at a fixed, low monthly rate. Call Kool Smiles to speak to one of our friendly staff members about your discount program options.
3. Choose Traditional Metal Braces
There are a few different types of braces that vary in price range, but traditional metal braces are the least expensive. For the most affordable option, bypass the other options and go for traditional metal braces.
Braces can seem expensive, but by taking a few careful measures you can cut down on the cost and afford the healthy smile your child deserves.
