Childhood Braces Cost Less than Adult Orthodontics

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

Braces used to only be seen on teens, but now they’re worn by people of all ages. And care is beginning earlier than ever—The American Association of Orthodontists advises that children get their first orthodontic evaluation by age seven to get a head start on a healthy smile.

How Much do Braces Cost?

While there may be savings on dental care later in life, the amount that braces cost at any age will always depend on personal needs, treatment type, and location of care. Large metal braces used to be the only option. Today there are many choices including tooth-colored ceramic braces, small braces placed behind teeth, and removable invisible braces. Traditional metal braces are the most affordable orthodontics choice, but remember that they are smaller and more discreet than in years past. You can discuss your options with your orthodontist to help determine which type will suit your needs and budget, and so you can answer that burning question, “How much do braces cost?”

What Are the Merits of Childhood Treatment?

Not every child should get braces early, but they should all get an orthodontic evaluation. This allows orthodontists to develop a long-term treatment plan based on the child’s development and needs throughout their life. In many cases, early diagnosis and treatment can position teeth more favorably and aid in healthy dental development by:

  • Making space for permanent teeth
  • Eliminating thumb sucking
  • Reducing the risk of impacted permanent teeth
  • Guiding jaw growth
  • Correcting problems with speech and swallowing
  • Preventing wear on the teeth
  • Increasing the longevity of natural teeth

Getting early treatment is not the right path for some children because certain orthodontic problems are better corrected in the teen years once permanent teeth have come in and the skull has developed fully.

How Can I Get Affordable Orthodontics?

Dental insurance may help to cover some of what braces cost, but now those who need help making up the difference, or people without insurance, have two options to get affordable orthodontics care. One of those choices is CareCredit. It’s a personal healthcare credit card that allows you to finance and pay monthly for different health treatments. Its advantages include:

  • Convenient monthly payments
  • Acceptance at 175,000 providers nationwide
  • Special financing options not found with most credit cards

There’s also DentRite®, a dental savings plan that provides significant savings on major dental procedures. Its benefits include:

  • Acceptance for everyone
  • Membership options for individuals and families
  • Unlimited usage
