If you’re considering braces for straighter teeth, then we know one of your first questions will be how much they will cost. But straightening your teeth doesn’t have to break the bank, like many people think it will.
In fact, orthodontist clinics like ours here in Elmhurst and Forest Park, IL, are in the business of truly flexible financing, offering payment plans for braces and aligners. Below, we’re covering some of the common questions asked about the price of braces.
Are Aligners More Expensive Than Braces?
Aligners are typically more expensive than traditional metal braces, because of the process and materials involved creating the aligners. In many clinics, this is also why they charge extra for the after-care retainers.
Here at Advanced Orthodontic Specialists, our costs are all-inclusive, meaning that your upper and lower retainers are included. Plus – you’ll get a model of your teeth so reordering is easy, if ever needed.
Are Braces Cheaper For Children?
Braces for children are typically slightly less expensive than the adult version, but that’s really only because of the complexity of the care needed.
When we approach adult orthodontic treatment, we have to contend with fully developed teeth and jaws. This means that the patient’s bones are harder, and the tissue surrounding the teeth has settled – requiring more work to move the teeth.
When the treatment lengthens, or requires additional brace accessories and tech, the cost will increase. But regardless of age and treatment needs, here at Advanced Orthodontic Treatment, we work with our patients to ensure your treatment is affordable for your circumstance.
Are There Payment Plans For Braces?
Absolutely. The specifics will vary depending on the office that you go to, but payment plans are an option in orthodontics.
We believe in making orthodontic care affordable. That’s why we offer in-house financing with 0% interest, with a customized down payment and billing frequency. Not only that, but we also offer family discounts – so if multiple family members come to us, you’ll receive a 5% discount.
