How much do braces cost?

The new trend among teenagers and adults is orthodontic treatment. People are looking for straight, healthy and beautiful smiles.  Since orthodontic treatment has become so popular, let’s dive into types of braces and costs associated with them.

Metal/Traditional braces:

These are the most noticeable, and the most popular braces. Traditional braces can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $6500, price variation depending on complexity of treatment. Traditional braces also require frequent visits to the orthodontist, usually every 4-6 weeks.

Damon braces

These braces do not require a ligature tie (color tie) to hold the wires between the brackets, instead the brackets hold the wires in place with a special closing clamp. Damon braces are lot smoother and gentle and do not require frequent activation by the orthodontist. Cost on these braces can usually run from $5500 to $8500, depending on treatment duration and complexity

Invisible aligners

Clear aligners have become extremely popular as of late. They are almost invisible and the patient is able to eat or drink normally while in treatment.  Invisible aligners are removable and can be taken out to eat, drink and during brushing of teeth.  Invisalign technology is very efficient and effective and most malocclusions can now be treated by clear aligners with help of an experienced orthodontist. Cost of invisalign (clear, removable aligners) can range from $4000-$7000

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces except the brackets are made from tooth-colored ceramic material. Ceramic braces are less noticeable than traditional braces but can stain easily if not cleaned properly. Cost on these type of braces are slightly higher than metal braces

Lingual braces

These braces are placed behind the teeth.  Lingual braces are invisible and are least noticeable of all the braces discussed.  However, they are more difficult to clean and maintain with cost ranging from $8500 to $12000
