If your child needs braces, your biggest question is likely, “How much do braces cost for kids these days?”
Today, kids have more options than ever when it comes to straightening their teeth, and the average price of braces depends on the type they choose. Below, you’ll find a breakdown of the different types of braces and their pricing.
There are four main types of braces, and all vary in price. Below are price ranges for each option:
1. Metal braces—Still the most common braces option, metal braces range from $3,000 to $7,000.
2. Invisible braces—Invisible braces are best for kids who have minor alignment issues and can cost between $4,000 and $7,400.
3. Ceramic braces—These are similar to metal braces, but their brackets are made of teeth-colored or clear ceramic rather than metal to help them blend in with teeth. The average cost of ceramic braces ranges from $4,000 to $8,000.
4. Lingual braces—The least common (and most expensive) type of braces, lingual braces, are secured behind teeth and are almost invisible. Currently, few orthodontists offer lingual braces and few insurance policies cover them. On average, lingual braces range from $8,000 to $10,000.
How do I know if my dental insurance covers braces for kids?
Every policy is different when it comes to coverage for braces, so it is recommended that you speak with your insurance agent to find out specifics.
If you receive Medicaid, your child’s braces may be covered, especially if they are considered medically necessary. Kids who have severely misaligned teeth often have trouble eating, talking, and swallowing, making braces a necessity.
Your local Medicaid office can provide you with more information about your benefits, what is covered under your insurance, and an estimate of how much braces will cost for your child.
