How Much do Braces Cost?

The average cost of braces can range between ,500 and ,000 depending on the type of braces and your needs. If you need braces, your dentist will refer you to an orthodontist. This is a dental specialist who has undergone further education and training in dentistry and has expertise in teeth straightening. Whilst dentists cannot apply traditional braces, there are many who deal with simpler cases of crooked teeth and use Invisalign.

Typically, because of their skill and experience, having an orthodontist affix your braces costs more than a dentist would charge. However, the cost of having braces is cheaper than buying Invisalign for the same set of teeth. Other than the type of specialist (dentist or orthodontist) and the type of braces, the cost of braces by location can differ significantly. Besides these, there are additional factors to consider when determining the total cost of braces.
