The Straight Story on Braces Care and Cost for Children

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

Today, more and more kids are getting braces because early intervention is thought to prevent later problems. But braces can be expensive, so you want to be sure that the benefits are worth the cost. Find out the facts about childhood braces and ways to cover the cost.

Ways Braces Can Benefit Children

According to orthodontists, 45 percent of children require braces to fix functional problems, yet up to 75 percent of kids could use them to improve the health and appearance of their smiles. Braces offer an array of advantages, including:

  • Straighter teeth
  • Proper jaw alignment
  • Easier biting and chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Less stress on gums
  • Decreased dental decay
  • Greater personal comfort
  • Higher self-esteem
  • Fewer dental issues and costs later in life

The Cost of Braces for Kids

While you want the best for your kids, covering what braces cost can be challenging. But keep in mind that braces cost less during childhood because treatment time is shorter than for teens and adults. When asking the question, “How much do braces cost?” there is no single answer because the cost depends on the child’s needs, the type of treatment, and even the location of the orthodontist, since there are higher overhead costs in big cities and some states. Severe dental issues cannot be corrected with certain treatments, but most general cases are fine with any type of braces. And speaking of types of braces, metal brackets placed on the front of teeth are more affordable braces than the more discreet options of tooth-colored ceramic braces, lingual braces on the back of teeth, or invisible braces. After the orthodontist evaluates your child’s case, you can discuss the braces cost and which options meet your needs and your budget.

Tactics for Getting Affordable Braces

Dental insurance may cover a portion of what braces cost, but most orthodontists offer other options to help parents without insurance or who need more assistance to handle the high cost of care. One popular payment method is called CareCredit. It is a personal healthcare credit card that allows you to finance healthcare expenses. CareCredit gives you:

  • Affordable monthly payments
  • Special financing offers not found with other payment plans
  • Acceptance by more than 175,000 U.S. healthcare practitioners

You can also choose to use DentRite®. This is a dental savings plan that delivers sizable savings on dental procedures. DentRite® provides:

  • Individual or family membership plans
  • No limit on usage
  • Acceptance for everyone at any time

Either option is a worthwhile way to help your child benefit from affordable braces.
