A teeth retainer can help straighten a child’s teeth. Sometimes they are used alone, and other times they are used in addition to other orthodontic treatments, such as braces. The cost of a teeth retainer can range anywhere from $100 to $1,000.
In order to fully understand what influences the cost of a teeth retainer, read through the information below.
Retainers are typically removable, custom-fit, orthodontic appliances made from plastic and metal. They are designed to help straighten teeth and correct minor bite issues, and are often used in place of, or in addition to, dental braces.
If used after braces, they can help keep your child’s corrected smile straight. They can also be used to correct minor problems like a single crowded tooth.
Retainers come in several styles which can affect the price paid for the treatment.
The severity of your child’s crowded teeth and the type of retainer used will determine how much the retainers cost you.
If your child has crowded teeth and you’re not sure whether they need braces or a retainer, bring them in to Kool Smiles for a no-cost orthodontic consultation.
