The new trend among teenagers and adults is orthodontic treatment. People are looking for straight, healthy, and beautiful smiles. Since orthodontic treatment has become so popular, let’s dive into the types of braces and the prices associated with them.
These are the most noticeable, and the most popular braces. Traditional braces can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $6500, with price variation depending on the complexity of treatment. Traditional braces also require frequent visits to the orthodontist, usually every 4-6 weeks.
These braces do not require a ligature tie (color tie) to hold the wires between the brackets, instead, the brackets hold the wires in place with a special closing clamp. Damon braces are a lot smoother and gentle and do not require frequent activation by the orthodontist. The cost of these braces can usually run from $5500 to $8500, depending on treatment duration and complexity
Clear aligners have become extremely popular as of late. They are almost invisible and the patient is able to eat or drink normally while in treatment. Invisible aligners are removable and can be taken out to eat, drink, and during brushing of teeth. Invisalign technology is very efficient and effective and most malocclusions can now be treated by clear aligners with the help of an experienced orthodontist. The cost of Invisalign (clear, removable aligners) can range from $4000-$7000
Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces except the brackets are made from tooth-colored ceramic material. Ceramic braces are less noticeable than traditional braces but can stain easily if not cleaned properly. The cost on these type of braces are slightly higher than metal braces
These braces are placed behind the teeth. Lingual braces are invisible and are the least noticeable of all the braces discussed. However, they are more difficult to clean and maintain with costs ranging from $8500 to $12000
