Learn the Cost of Braces with Insurance for Your Child's Teeth
When your child’s dentist suggests correcting your child's teeth with braces, you may be concerned about the cost of them. Even with insurance, the cost of braces can be higher than your plan may cover.
At Kool Smiles, we make paying for braces affordable with a variety of payment options.
The Cost of Braces with Insurance
With insurance, your child’s braces treatment can still end up costing you in out-of-pocket costs (e.g. copays, deductibles, and coinsurance). Here are the typical costs of different types of braces:
- Traditional metal braces can cost an average of $3,407 in out-of-pocket expenses.
- Ceramic, plastic brackets, and self-ligating braces can cost an average of $4,572 in out-of-pocket expenses.
Even with coverage, many families may still be faced with expenses for their children's care. They may also get a different estimate from their children's dentist or orthodontist depending on a number of factors.
What Factors Affect the Cost of Braces?
The best way to get the most accurate estimate for your child’s braces treatment is by consulting with your child’s dentist or orthodontist about:
- The type of braces your child needs
- How long your child will have to wear braces
- The current state your child’s teeth are in
Typically, if your child requires serious dental work (e.g. under/overbite correction or crowding), your child may need a longer braces treatment, which can cost extra.
When you visit Kool Smiles, you won’t have to worry about the high cost of braces with or without insurance. The health of your child’s teeth is important to us, which is why we specialize in affordable, high-quality dental services for children across the country.
