Affordable OrthodonticsHow much do braces cost? That’s the question you’re left with once you’ve determined with your dentist that the best treatment for your smile is orthodontic treatment. And, while you’re on board with improving the appearance and health of your smile, another important aspect when accomplishing this is the cost.

Let’s be honest. The cost of braces is not small.  In fact, the average cost of conventional braces in the United States can be anywhere from $3,000-$6,000.  Cost can vary depending on your dental insurance coverage, but the question is: Does affordable orthodontics exist? The short answer – yes!

Types of Orthodontic Treatment

Although we often think of conventional metal braces when we think orthodontic treatment, there are more corrective orthodontic treatments available.  And, with choices, there are variations in price. Typical costs for orthodontic treatments fall in the ranges below at private dental practices:

  • Metal Braces: $3,000-$6,000
  • Invisalign: $3,000 – $8,000
  • Ceramic Braces:  $4,000 – $8,000
  • Lingual Braces:  $8,000 -$10,000

The reality is that the cost varies depending on the type of treatment used, the duration of the treatment, dental insurance coverage, the orthodontist, location, and any other varying types of restorative dentistry involved before the initial treatment begins. So the question remains – is there somewhere you can turn to for affordable orthodontics? And the answer is Penn Dental Medicine!
