How Much Are Braces on Average?

Braces not only makes smiles look good, correcting malocclusions can improve speech, bite, and self-confidence. If malocclusions are left uncorrected, bacteria have more places to hide and cause enamel decay. An investment in braces is an investment in overall health.

At The Smile Specialists, we never want finances to stand in the way of a healthy smile. We offer obligation-free, complimentary consultations to first-time patients. During the first appointment, we take pictures and x-rays of the teeth and jaw. The cost of braces depends on the extent and duration of the treatment. Braces are cheaper for children and teenager because their jaws are still growing, and they are easier to correct. Ask about pricing, duration, and insurance coverage during the first visit. We offer payment plans, and we accept all insurance plans with orthodontic coverage.

When deciding whether or not to get braces, patients should consider the benefits of Invisalign. Dr. McSurdy is a proud provider of Invisalign, and they will inform you of the pros and cons during your first visit. Invisalign is a modern orthodontic technology that uses transparent aligners to gently correct smiles. Unlike braces, Invisalign patients must remove their aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water. We recommend Invisalign to patients who frequently participate in contact sports because they can remove their aligners beforehand.

How to Choose the Right Orthodontist

When deciding to get braces, most people first consider the price. The price of braces is relatively the same with all orthodontists. When deciding to receive braces treatment, the most important factor to consider is the talent of the individual orthodontist. Since the early 2000s, Dr. McSurdy has helped hundreds of patients receive affordable orthodontic care. Both doctors are active members of the American Dental Association, and Dr. McSurdy holds a US patent for press-on incremental expanders.

The team at The Smile Specialists believes in continuing education, and each team member stays up-to-date on the latest orthopedic technology. As certified Invisalign providers, we are able to provide patients with the most cutting-edge cosmetic treatment. Teenagers who may be self-conscious about wearing metal wires and brackets can now participate in oral treatment by wearing clear aligners.
