Kids may have reservations about braces, and as a parent, you may have concerns about the price. But rest assured, Kool Smiles is dedicated to offering affordable dental care.
At Kool Smiles, we accept most insurance plans, including Medicaid and TRICARE, allowing you to have options when affording your child’s braces.
On average, braces can cost around $5,000 without insurance. However, this number can slide up or down depending on a few factors, such as:
Basically, the more straightening that needs to occur or the more teeth that need braces can affect the overall price.
Metal braces are generally the most affordable type of braces. There are a few alternative forms of braces, such as ceramics, that are usually a little more pricey.
The amount of time braces stay on teeth can differ from one child to the next. The longer braces are on the teeth, the more adjustments may be needed from the orthodontist and the more appointments you may have to pay for.
Also, ceramic braces have been known to crack or break more often than other braces, so any repairs that are needed can also drive up the cost.
After braces come off, a retainer may need to be worn for a period of time. While the cost of the retainer is often included in the total price of the braces, this can sometimes be an additional cost.
Like most dental services, prices can vary based on location and experience of the dentist. You can set up a no-cost, braces consultation with a Kool Smiles orthodontist to determine if your child needs braces and what the expected cost could be.
