Even with dental insurance, your current coverage may not include braces treatment, which means the braces will have to be paid for out of pocket.
To determine exactly how much your child’s braces will cost, it’s best to visit a dentist or orthodontist for an honest assessment of your child’s situation.
While it’s difficult to say how much braces will cost without an appointment with your child’s orthodontist, here are some cost estimates for different types of braces:
Though these costs seem high, the dentists at Kool Smiles make braces more affordable than you may think.
Some people may think that braces are just used to make teeth look pretty, but that’s not always the case. While some children get braces to improve their smile and self- confidence, braces are generally used to avoid dental problems.
Crowded and crooked teeth affect nearly 90% of children in the United States, and severe cases can affect the way your child’s jaw grows.
Take your child to your local Kool Smiles today, and one of our dentists or orthodontists will be able to tell you if your child needs braces, what type would be best, and how much you can expect to pay.
Kool Smiles has many locations (including Washington D.C.) that have in-house orthodontists. Typically, we offer 18-month treatment for an average of $3,400. Keep in mind that this price can vary based on your child’s dental situation.
