If you’re thinking about getting orthodontic treatment for either your child or yourself, then be sure to carefully consider the cost. Don’t worry, there are many financial options to explore.

Payment Plans

Many orthodontists like Dr. Castilla are able to make treatment with braces more affordable for their clients by spreading out the cost of treatment over a period of time with a flexible financing plan, usually coinciding with the term of treatment. To make the payments more affordable, ask your orthodontist if it’s possible to extend the payments beyond the removal of your braces. Third-party financing is also available to help patients pay for their orthodontic treatment.

The Right Type of Braces (From the Right Orthodontist)

There are several orthodontic treatment options to explore, each with its own costs and benefits. Some methods work better than others for specific orthodontic issues. For example, braces work more efficiently as the individual brackets adhered to the teeth allow orthodontists to use a wider range of methods to move the teeth within the mouth. In contrast, clear aligner systems like Invisalign aren’t as effective in treating more severe malocclusions (the misalignment of teeth). Invisalign clear aligner trays have advantages over braces in that the aligners are practically invisible to the casual observer, and they are removable, allowing you to eat whatever you’d like.

Dental Insurance

Make sure that you check with your insurance provider before you start treatment to be certain that you’re covered under your dental plan. It’s also possible to purchase supplemental orthodontic insurance if your current coverage isn’t right for you.

Initial Consultation

The best way to estimate the cost of a plan of orthodontic treatment is to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Castilla. Early intervention in orthodontics can ensure a more effective and permanent treatment outcome. Once a patient’s orthodontic needs have been evaluated, you can then discuss the treatment options available, payment plans, and insurance coverage.
