A beautiful, healthy smile has the power to change your life. It is the gateway to your personality that will leave you feeling confident and poised. After all, we smile every day—it’s one of the easiest things to do.
Some people lack a comprehensive understanding of orthodontic treatment and its investment, leaving them to forego a straight smile because of the cost. However, orthodontics is not a one-and-done deal; it has a lifetime value that can increase your health and happiness. Unlike a one-time trip to a foreign country or a brand new sports car, the investment in your or your child’s smile will still be paying dividends fifty years from now.
I’m not going to lie and say orthodontic treatment is cheap because it’s not. But the cost is not outlandish, either. Furthermore, the impact it will have on your life is insurmountable. Knowing that you or your child has healthy, aligned teeth that will last a lifetime offers peace of mind.
Now, let’s get into the nitty-gritty pricing of orthodontics. For many patients who will need full comprehensive SureSmile braces or clear aligner treatment, I would recommend budgeting $5,000 to $6,000. If you opt for lingual braces, the process is more complicated thus increasing the fee. The cost of orthodontic treatment is directly tied to the length and complexity of treatment needed. Without seeing the patient and assessing their individual needs, it is near impossible to estimate the cost of treatment. At Moravec Orthodontics, we offer complimentary consultations to discuss various treatment options that fit within our patient’s lifestyle.
We never want a patient to waive orthodontic treatment due to financial reasons. We offer payment plans with flexible down payment options followed by monthly payments that stretch out over the course of treatment. At Moravec Orthodontics, we are proud to say that it is rare for our Treatment Coordinators to be unable to come up with a payment scenario that fits within a family’s budget.
Our assistance does not end when you finish orthodontic treatment. We firmly believe that straight teeth should stay aligned and healthy for a lifetime. We are always here to make sure your teeth stay that way. Wearing your retainer, brushing and flossing each day, and eating a healthy diet is the best way to maintain the healthy, white smile you have always wanted. But we know that life happens, and it’s not always the easiest thing to remember to wear your retainer each night. That’s why we are always available to answer questions or to schedule a quick follow up appointment if you have any other questions or concerns!
