Are Braces Best for Your Child Despite the Cost?

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

Have you noticed that more and more younger kids are wearing braces today? Since braces can be a costly choice, learn whether the care is worth the braces cost and how to make care more affordable.

Why Braces Can Benefit Children

According to orthodontists, 45 percent of children require braces to fix functional problems; but up to 75 percent of kids could use them to improve the health and appearance of their smiles. Braces can provide a variety of advantages, including:

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

How Much Do Braces Cost?

You want the best for your kids, but covering what braces cost can be challenging. However, you should remember that braces cost less during childhood because treatment time is shorter than for teens and adults. If you are wondering—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. Certain treatments are only effective for minor problems, which limits braces options. Traditional metal braces placed on the front side of teeth are more affordable than more discreet options, including invisible braces, tooth-colored ceramic braces, or lingual braces on the back of teeth. After the orthodontist evaluates your child for braces, you can discuss which cost options meet your budget.

Two Ways to Get Affordable Braces for Your Kid

It’s important to understand that dental insurance may cover some of the costs, but what if you don’t have insurance or need more financial assistance? Well, most orthodontists offer other options to help parents without insurance or in need of more assistance handle the cost of braces. One popular payment method is DentRite®. This dental savings plan delivers sizable savings on major dental procedures and offers:

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

Another option is CareCredit, a personal healthcare credit card that allows you to finance healthcare expenses. CareCredit provides you:

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

Both options can help your child benefit from affordable braces.
