So you're almost ready to invest in your smile and improve your confidence but how much do braces costs?
Prices can't be provided verbally because an orthodontist is unable to determine your treatment costs without a consultation. Here are some factors and reasons why:
- Nature and the condition of your teeth: The length of your treatment plan is affected by your teeth conditions and alignment
- Dental Hygiene: The current condition of your teeth's hygiene and the maintenance during the course of your treatment will have an effect on the duration. So healthy teeth and gums will help your treatment go according to plan.
- Choice of brace type: There are many orthodontic treatment options to choose from.You may not like the standard metal orthodontic appliance and go for Invisalign or Incognito to suit your lifestyle. Keep in mind that each orthodontic appliances requires different level of skill and time therefore affecting the price of braces.
- Treatment provider level of skill: General dentist are starting to overstep their skill level by offering orthodontic treatment.They are normally cheaper at the beginning (can be more expensive in the long term to fix mistakes) but do you really want to trust a dentist who isn't specialised in orthodontic treatment, not to mention the health/appearance of your teeth?
