How Much Will Braces Cost?
Our patients frequently ask, “How much do braces cost?” To provide you with the most accurate estimate, you would have to come in for a consultation first since there are a number of factors that will affect your cost. The type of braces you select, the severity of your alignment issues, and whether you will need extractions all contribute to your total cost. If you have dental insurance, check your policy to determine your coverage for orthodontics.
Consider braces an investment in your future oral health. Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss and good dental hygiene helps prevent cavities. Additionally, you will feel self-confident every time you smile. We like to see our patients with a smile they can be proud of, so we offer financing options to help ease the cost burden. Call our office to schedule a consultation or to learn more about your payment options.
Will I Have to Wear a Retainer Afterward?
Yes, people who have worn metal, ceramic, or clear aligner trays will have to wear a retainer for several years afterward to keep their teeth in their new position. Without the retainer, teeth would shift back into their original position. While each case is unique, patients generally wear the retainer day and night as first, and then only at night. Ask your orthodontist about clear aligners, which are barely noticeable.
