How to Find the Best Orthodontist for Better Braces Cost and Care

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

You find people with braces everywhere, but where do you find the right orthodontist to provide affordable braces? Discover how to seek out the right orthodontist and make a straighter, healthier smile within reach.

Selecting the Right Orthodontist

Orthodontists are dentists with advanced training in straightening teeth, aligning the jaw, and re-positioning the overall bite to correct or prevent dental problems. Your child’s pediatric dentist or your general dentist can refer you to an orthodontist if they think braces are needed. But if you’d like to compare different kinds of care—and answer the question, “How much do braces cost?” with each type of care—you may need to visit a few orthodontists to find the best one for you or your child. Set up some initial appointments and think about these key factors:

  • Education and training of orthodontist
  • Years in practice
  • Hours that are flexible and convenient
  • Appointment frequency
  • Patient or parent references
  • Warmth and friendliness of staff
  • Comfort of you or your child
  • Recommended treatment time
  • Estimate of braces cost, including follow-up expenses
  • Affordable braces payment options
  • Number of orthodontists in the office

Getting Information About How Much Braces Cost

You should be aware that how much braces cost in total depends on the patient’s own case, the braces selected, and the orthodontist’s location. After the evaluation, the orthodontist will provide you with a treatment plan based on the braces cost and your needs. The four basic types of braces are traditional metal brackets, tooth-colored ceramic braces, lingual braces placed on the back of teeth, and invisible braces. The ceramic and invisible braces may be more discreet, but the traditional metal brackets are the most affordable braces. Today’s metal braces are a lot smaller and much less noticeable.

Making Affordable Braces a Reality

Braces cost may be covered by certain dental insurance, but if you do not have insurance and need financial help, there are two ways to manage the cost. The first option is CareCredit, which is a healthcare credit card that lets you finance various health procedures. It offers exclusive financing options, convenient monthly payments, and is accepted by more than 175,000 providers nationwide. You can also look into a dental savings plan called DentRite® that provides substantial savings on many dental treatments. Every patient is accepted and usage is unlimited, plus there are membership options for individuals and families. With help from these savings solutions, affordable braces from the orthodontist you choose are within your reach.
