After the molds, photos and x-rays have been taken, your orthodontist is able to provide a thorough treatment plan with more accurate pricing. Some doctors will provide rough figures or an estimate in the same appointment. If the case requires more detailed assessment, your surgeon may require you to schedule another appointment and may charge an additional fee.
The costs for a diagnosis and treatment plan are typically charged separately since at this stage you can still refuse to get treatment. This can add up to around $380 to $670. Depending on the clinic’s policies, your orthodontist may bundle these expenses with the total cost of treatment if you decide to go ahead with getting braces.
