When it comes to perfecting your smile, braces can be a powerful tool. But often, one question looms large: “How much do braces cost?” It’s a valid concern, and at Walt Orthodontics, we believe in providing transparent information about the potential costs associated with braces, while also offering flexible financial options to make a beautiful smile accessible for everyone.

The cost of braces can vary widely based on several factors. These include the complexity of your case, the type of braces you choose, and the length of your treatment. Generally, braces can cost anywhere from $1,800 to $8,200, but every patient’s needs are unique. Only a comprehensive examination can provide an accurate estimate of the costs you might face.

Phase 1 or Early Intervention Treatment is usually priced on the lower side of this range as it involves treatment of a specific problem. More involved early treatment ranges from $3000 – $4000 and often involves Palatal Expanders and Invisalign First. Sometimes we use a few limited braces.

LightForce braces are a state-of-the-art orthodontic technology, offering fully customized 3D-printed brackets that are designed for each patient’s unique dentition. We use this as the standard for every braces patient seeking comprehensive care. This means all the permanent teeth are in the mouth and we are aligning the teeth and correcting the bite. Most comprehensive braces cases are priced between $6,000 – $8,000.

Invisalign, a series of custom-made clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth into their correct positions, is usually priced the same as braces in our office. However, they offer significant advantages in terms of comfort and convenience, and are virtually invisible when worn.

Remember, braces are an investment in your oral health and overall well-being. A straight, healthy smile not only improves your appearance but also makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene, which can save you money on dental treatments in the long run.

Here at Walt Orthodontics, we understand that the cost of braces can be a concern, which is why we offer flexible financial options. We aim to make orthodontic treatment affordable for everyone by providing a range of payment plans. These include a full payment courtesy discount, sibling and parent discount, as well as zero downpayment and low monthly payments – as low as $150. We can also help you understand and maximize your insurance benefits. For more details on our pricing and plans, read our informative pricing page

When it comes to financing there’s no one size fits all solution. Likewise, there is no singular solution when it comes to financing. At LendCare, we get that and go deeper to understand your unique story and offer flexible options that work best for you, given your current financial situation. That means you get affordable financing, even if your credit is anything but top-tier.

Walt Orthodontics is pleased to offer interest-free payments up to 30 months. If you require payments over 30 months we are happy to offer the LendCare solution.
