What Affects the Price Range for Your Child's Braces?
Many kids need dental braces to straighten their teeth and help with alignment issues. Because each child's teeth are different, the cost of your child's braces treatment will vary.
The price range for dental braces depends on a number of factors, like type of braces and how long they are needed for, so keep reading to understand them all.
Average Price Range for Kids Braces
There are many factors that can affect the cost of braces—some of which are in your control and some that depend on your child's current oral situation.
No matter where you look to find a price range for braces, you'll find different numbers and reasons for a particular estimate.
However, you can at least get a general idea of the price range for each type of braces:
- Traditional metal braces can range between $3,000–$7,000
- Ceramic or plastic bracket braces can range between $4,000–$8,000
- Lingual braces can range between $8,000–$10,000
- Invisalign can range between $4,000–$7,400
Three Key Factors that Affect Braces Cost
In general, there are three important factors to consider when estimating a price range for your child's braces treatment:
- Type of braces
- Insurance coverage
- Your child's dental situation
Your child's dental situation can only be assessed by a dentist or orthodontist. Only after that assessment can you really know how long your child will need to wear braces, or what other treatment is necessary.
