How Braces in Early Childhood Can Cost Less Than Later Dental Treatment

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

Everyone seems to be wearing braces today, from children to adults. The American Association of Orthodontists advises that children have their initial orthodontic evaluation by the time they are age seven to detect problems early and reduce dental issues later in life.

8 Advantages of Childhood Treatment

While early treatment isn’t wise for all children, early evaluations are always a good idea. Taking your child to the orthodontist at a young age can allow for the early detection of problems and the development of a lifetime treatment plan. And in many cases, early diagnosis and treatment can position teeth more favorably and facilitate healthy dental development by:

  1. Gaining space for permanent teeth
  2. Guiding jaw growth
  3. Reducing the risk of impacted permanent teeth
  4. Correcting thumb sucking
  5. Preventing wear on the teeth
  6. Eliminating speech and swallowing problems
  7. Increasing the longevity of natural teeth
  8. Easing the financial burden by reducing treatment time and the need for more significant dental care later in life

However, early treatment is not the best strategy for some children because certain orthodontic problems are better corrected in the teen years when the permanent teeth have come in and the skull has fully developed.

Finding Answers to the Question, “How Much Do Braces Cost?”

Regardless of the age that treatment begins, how much braces cost will vary by the individual’s needs, the type of treatment, and even the city where care is received. Large metal braces used to be the only option, but today there are many choices, including tooth-colored ceramic braces, braces placed behind teeth, and removable invisible braces. The most affordable orthodontics are the traditional metal style, but advances have made today’s braces much smaller and less disruptive. Your orthodontist will discuss your options to help determine which type will suit your needs and budget, so you can answer the important question, “How much do braces cost?”

Solutions for Affordable Orthodontics

Dental insurance may help to cover what braces cost, but now people without insurance have two helpful ways to get affordable orthodontics care:
