3 Worthwhile Ways to Cover the Cost of Braces

The high cost of family orthodontics today has made it a major challenge for many, especially parents trying to afford much-needed braces for kids. Discover some savvy solutions for making braces affordable.

How Much Do Braces Cost?

According to research in family orthodontics, the cost of orthodontics varies by many factors such as a patient’s dental needs, the type of treatment chosen, and the state where the orthodontist practices. Plus, certain types of family orthodontics treatment can cost much more than others, with metal the most affordable braces and removable clear aligners the most expensive.

Are Affordable Braces Possible?

Yes. Many family orthodontics practices don’t want the price of braces to deprive people from much-needed care. That’s why an orthodontist will usually offer various financial options to make affordable braces a reality, such as:

  • Family Dental Insurance Coverage Today, many family health insurance companies cover orthodontics. They often may pay for either all or a portion of family orthodontics treatment, especially in matters of braces for kids. Insurance plans typically pay for a portion of the down payment and disperse the remainder throughout orthodontics treatment. Check your policy or contact the company to see if they cover braces. If they do, find orthodontists in Baltimore that accept your insurance plan.
  • Financing and Payment Plans – Many orthodontists in Baltimore offer flexible payment plans, with some even interest-free. Talk to your orthodontist to see if they have affordable financing plans.
  • DentRite Discount Dental Plan – This isn’t dental insurance, but is a discount dental plan that offers substantial savings on dental procedures for individuals and families. It’s often preferable to dental insurance or payment plans because it provides unlimited usage, individual or family membership plans, and unconditional acceptance for everyone.
