Your dentist has told you that it’s time to consider orthodontic care for you or your child. Plus, you’ve been wondering about orthodontics for yourself every time you see the Invisalign ads. However, a few questions keep you from making the call to schedule an orthodontic appointment. At Jacaranda Smiles, our certified and experienced team of orthodontists and dentists have extensive experience in providing personalized solutions to correct teeth misalignment by creating customized affordable orthodontics treatment plans that fit your budget and lifestyle.
At Jacaranda Smiles, we can easily help you navigate the world of affordable orthodontics care, orthodontic insurance coverage, and benefits.
According to the American Dental Association 2020 Survey of Dental Fees, on a National scale the average cost of braces was $5,300 for adolescents and $5,400 for adults. Other factors can make some types of treatment more expensive than others.
Most dental insurance plans don’t cover braces for adults but will partially cover treatment for children under the age of 18 if braces are deemed to be medically necessary. Check with your insurance provider or contact your local Plantation orthodontist to find out if your orthodontic treatment plan will be covered by insurance.
The full price of braces will vary. Here are some factors that can change the total cost:
When you visit our office for your free new patient consultation, we go over the price as well as the options for financing, payment plans, insurance coverage, and other questions you may have about orthodontic care.
With that being said, if you’ve done any research you probably have found that orthodontic care is an investment and maybe even noticed a range between the high and low scale of cost. Some dental insurance plans include orthodontic coverage and others do not. This is why it’s important to make sure it’s part of the package when you’re shopping for a comprehensive dental plan. If your insurance does cover some of the bill, this can really reduce your out-of-pocket costs. At our office, differing insurance coverage is one of the factors that cause variations in how much each patient pays. Typically there is a percentage of coverage and lifetime maximum for orthodontic care separate from normal dental benefits. There also could be an age limit and some plans may not include adults.
Even for those patients that do not have insurance, there are many affordable orthodontics options that our treatment coordinator would be happy to assist you with during your new patient consultation.
Dr. Khakhria and the team at Jacaranda Smiles will help you create the smile you’ve dreamed about and at the same time, make it affordable for your budget. We look forward to meeting you at your FREE orthodontic consultation. We believe everyone deserves a quality smile that looks great and lasts a long time.
