Cost of Orthodontics

How Much Do Braces or Invisalign Cost?

As soon as most parents hear braces or orthodontics they immediately think of the cost.  It has been implanted in our heads that braces are expensive.  That was true many years ago.  Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying braces aren't expensive.  I'm just saying that compared to the cost when we were young and before, the prices have not increased the same as all other goods and services.  Braces used to cost the same as a car!  Read that again braces price = price of a car.  Now, the great news is, that is not the same today.  I'm pretty sure you can't find any vehicle for the price of braces today.

Let's look at it another way.  With braces or orthodontics, we are typically moving 28 teeth for, we'll say approximately $6,000.  Now, if you were to get an implant that involves one tooth, your all-in cost with implant and replacement tooth is approximately $6,000- for one tooth!  A dental reconstruction, meaning crowns or dental work on all the teeth for just the top or bottom, not your whole mouth, ranges from $15,000 - $30,000.  

The great news is orthodontic treatment can improve your smile, your bite, and your confidence, and when you wear your retainers, can last for life!  Tell me where else can you make that kind of investment? The confidence gained alone is priceless!

So, the actual cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. After your initial consultation, we will know precisely what you desire- the treatment type, financial options, and what Dr. Borello or Dr. Little's recommendations are so that we can find an affordable option based on your budget
