3 Ways to Make Braces Affordable for Families

Children’s orthodontic care is often necessary to correct major dental problems. But braces can be very costly, which can make it difficult for parents to afford braces for kids. Discover how to handle the price of straighter teeth.

Cost of Braces

The price of family orthodontics is based on a patient’s dental problems, the treatment prescribed, and the location of the orthodontist. According to experts in family orthodontics, certain types of treatment can cost much more than others, with metal being the most affordable braces and removable clear aligners the most expensive.

Your 3 Smart Solutions for Affordable Braces

Fortunately, braces can be in everyone’s reach. Most family orthodontics practices don’t want financial concerns to prevent needed treatment. That’s why an orthodontist will usually offer various financial options to make affordable braces a reality. The most common include:

  1. Family Dental Insurance – Some family health insurance policies cover orthodontics. It’s possible that your company will pay all or a portion of the cost of family orthodontics care, especially braces for kids. Insurance typically pays for a portion of the down payment and disperses the remainder throughout orthodontics treatment. Check your policy or call the company to see if it covers braces. If so, find orthodontists in Baltimore that accept your insurance plan.
  2. Payment Plans – Many orthodontists in Baltimore offer financing options or flexible payment plans, with some even interest-free. Talk to your orthodontist to see if they have affordable financing plans.
  3. 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.
