A Look at Braces Cost and Types

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

Today, braces go beyond the traditional metal brackets and there are many different options that let you customize your care. To discover the various types and the costs that come with each, check out the following braces basics. Then you will be closer to answering the big question, “How much do braces cost?”

The Original: Metal Braces:

Traditional metal braces are the original and have remained the most common, but they’re now much smaller and more comfortable than ever. They use stainless steel brackets and wires to shift the teeth to a better position. They may be more noticeable than other choices, but traditional metal braces can be used for all types of dental corrections and they are the most affordable braces available.

The Hidden Weapon: Lingual Braces

These braces are metal, but they are attached to the back of the teeth so they are hidden from view. These offer the strength of metal braces, but are more inconspicuous. However, not all orthodontists offer these braces because their placement involves special training. Also, lingual braces cost more than traditional metal on the front of teeth, but their unnoticeable placement often justifies the higher cost for those seeking inconspicuous correction.

Camouflage Masters: Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces range from tooth-colored to nearly translucent, so they are significantly less noticeable than traditional metal braces. It’s important to be aware that the ceramic brackets are stain-resistant, but the elastic ties stain easily. Ties are replaced regularly at adjustments to eliminate this problem. Ceramic braces are popular among adults who want less noticeable braces, but they also have disadvantages. They are not as strong as the metal type, and these braces cost more, but their aesthetic and cosmetic benefits make them very appealing.

Are They Even There?: Invisalign® Invisible Braces:

Invisalign braces are invisible plastic aligners you remove while brushing and eating. This distinguishes them from other braces that are attached to the teeth and are more noticeable. Because they lack sharp metal brackets and wires, Invisalign braces are extremely comfortable and ideal for people who are self-conscious about wearing braces. However, Invisalign is mainly for adults and for people without severe dental problems. With all of the benefits, how much do these braces cost? Invisalign braces cost more than other options, but many people feel that the discretion and comfort make them worth the extra expense.

Affordable Braces: Two Solutions

The braces cost depends on each case and the location of care. The cost of braces ultimately depends on the extent of dental correction needed, the braces selected, and even the site of treatment, since big cities and some states have higher overhead costs. Dental insurance plans may help cover the costs, but coverage is often restricted to medical necessity or people of certain ages. Luckily, there are two programs for handling the cost of braces.

  1. DentRite®: A dental savings plan that delivers significant savings on dental treatments. It offers both individual and family membership options, unlimited use, and everyone is accepted in the plan.
  2. CareCredit: A personal healthcare credit card that allows you to finance healthcare treatments. It offers exclusive financing options, monthly payments, and more than 175,000 U.S. healthcare providers accept it.
