Learn About the Cost of Braces for Your Kid’s Teeth

If your child’s dentist recommends getting braces for his or her teeth, it’s important to consider whether the cost will be affordable. While insurance can help with some of the costs, there are many factors that can make some braces more affordable than others.

Call your local Kool Smiles dentist today to learn more about your options. 

The Average Cost of Kids’ Braces

Based on the type of braces your child receives and how much insurance coverage you have, the cost of kids braces can vary:

  • The cost for traditional metal braces is estimated to be $4,937 without dental insurance, or $3,407 with insurance.
  • The cost for ceramic or plastic bracket braces is estimated to be $4,572 without dental insurance, or $2,570 with insurance.
  • The cost of lingual braces (or braces behind the teeth) can cost between $5,000 and $13,000 without dental insurance. These types of braces aren’t typically covered under dental insurance.

In addition to the type of braces or insurance coverage, the cost can also depend on your child’s unique dental situation.

Why Should My Child Get Braces?

The purpose of braces is to correct your child’s teeth and align the jaws together. Braces allow for proper cleaning in the future and prevent pain from misaligned teeth or jaws.

Here are some reasons why your child’s dentist may recommend braces:

  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Missing or extra teeth
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Misaligned jaw position
  • Problems with jaw joints

No matter what problem your child may have with his or her smile, Kool Smiles orthodontists are ready to help.
