board certified orthodontist oxfordIf you’ve been considering braces for yourself or your child, you may be wondering about the average costs of orthodontic treatment. However, there’s not one flat price for all treatment; your health insurance, the severity of the orthodontic problem, and type of braces you choose will determine how much your treatment will cost. Our board certified orthodontist in Oxford explains the different types of treatments and possible costs associated with each below! 

What Determines Cost?

The main factors that determine the cost of braces are the type of braces you choose, the length of time the braces need to be worn, and any extra treatment steps needed, such as tooth extractions. Generally, braces vary in cost based on the above factors, and what our orthodontist determines is needed to get your perfect smile.

Adults may have a higher cost of treatment than children in general, since treatment usually takes longer and is more likely to require other steps, such as surgery. 

Types of Braces

Traditional braces. The cost of traditional metal braces is determined by the length of time needed, generally between one to three years, and your specific orthodontic case. This can be discussed with our orthodontist at the time of your consultation.

Invisalign. This treatment involves multiple plastic aligners given over a period of time, and tend to cost slightly more. However, with plastic aligners, the cost depends on how many aligners are needed to correct your smile. 

Your Specific Orthodontic Issues

We understand that the cost of treatment is a big consideration. However, it is important to take care of any serious orthodontic issues as soon as you can. Over time, orthodontic issues only worsen and can cost even more down the road. Crowded teeth, underbites, and overbites can all affect the shape of the face and jaw, causing pain, discomfort, and abnormal movement of the teeth. Consider talking with our orthodontist to determine your cost of treatment and payment plans, if necessary!
