Did you know about 1.5 million people seek orthodontic treatment every year?
So many people choose orthodontic treatment for themselves and for their children, because the benefits of braces go far beyond the appearance of the smile. Orthodontic treatment can transform your smile and your quality of life!
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to undergo orthodontic treatment and experience the life-changing effects of a new, healthy, beautiful smile. That’s why we’ve put together this short guide to help you understand the true cost of braces in 2021. (You may be surprised how affordable they can be!)
The Cost of Braces
Meeting our patients’ needs (financial needs and treatment needs) is incredibly important to us. That’s why we offer a number affordable payment plans to help you cover the cost of treatment.
When you visit us for your complimentary consultation, we’ll discuss your financial needs and work with you to create a payment plan that works with your budget.
How much do braces cost a month and how much do braces cost in Florida?
There is no set monthly cost of braces, and your geographical location shouldn’t have a significant impact on the cost. All of our treatment plans are 100% personalized for each patient! Your monthly costs will depend on the length and difficulty of your treatment, the payment plan you choose and your insurance coverage (if you have ortho insurance).
Cost of Braces with Insurance
With orthodontic insurance, the cost of braces for adults, teens and kids is even lower. With insurance coverage, your insurance provider will cover a certain portion of your treatment costs and you’ll be responsible for the rest. You can choose one of our affordable payment plans to cover the remaining cost of treatment.
We accept most major insurance plans. If you have orthodontic insurance, our team will help you file your insurance claims and paperwork to ensure that you get the most out of your benefit.
At your first visit to our office, we’ll discuss your insurance coverage and determine your out-of-pocket cost.
How much do braces cost without insurance?
If you don’t have insurance coverage, we’ll work with you to develop a financial plan that makes braces affordable and practical for you.
The Cost of Not Getting Braces
We believe a beautiful smile is truly invaluable. Believe it or not, many people who haven’t undergone treatment don’t realize how their dental condition is affecting their quality of life! That’s because the positions of your teeth and the alignment of your jaw bones have a significant impact on your vital functions (eating, sleeping and breathing).
If you have a dental or jaw misalignment, you may experience:
- Frequent mouth-breathing
- Loud snoring
- Restless sleep, waking up feeling unrested
- Popping, cracking, or locking of the jaw
- Jaw pain or soreness when biting or chewing
- Clenching or grinding teeth
- Difficulty brush or flossing between certain teeth
These symptoms may have become normal for you, but they’re common indications of a narrow palate restricting the airways, misaligned jaw bones (overbite, underbite, open bite, cross bite), TMJ disorder and other treatable conditions.
If you aren’t quite sure whether you require orthodontic treatment or could benefit from treatment, we encourage you to schedule your complimentary exam with us! Your first visit to our office comes at no cost to you, no risk, and no obligation. So why not?
