The cost of traditional metal braces for children can range anywhere from $3,000 to $7,500 if not covered by insurance. Although this seems expensive, there are ways to find affordable treatment with a low-cost orthodontist.
At Kool Smiles, we provide affordable braces and low-cost dental care to kids, as well as a no-cost orthodontics consultation to determine if your child needs braces.
Several factors determine how much braces will cost including insurance coverage, the type of braces chosen and your child’s dental condition.
Insurance will typically cover the cost, or at least part of the cost, of braces if they are needed for medical reasons. If they are needed for cosmetic reasons, then insurance will not likely cover them.
If they are needed for medical reasons and you don’t have insurance or they are not covered under your policy, the cost is usually tax deductible.
Orthodontists may recommend several alternatives to traditional metal braces that can vary in price. Damon braces, invisible aligners, ceramic braces and lingual braces can run anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000.
Depending on your child’s dental condition and how severely the teeth are crowded, the overall cost of braces can rise if your child needs to wear braces for a longer period of time.
We always keep our prices affordable so that more kids have access to quality dental care. Find a location that offers orthodontics near you, or call us today to schedule a no-cost, orthodontic consultation.
