HOW MUCH DO BRACES COST? By G. Brooks Haney, DDS on January 22, 2019



The price range for braces varies often depending on the training and experience of the provider, the types of braces or technique that is employed, and the difficulty of the case.

An orthodontist is the ideal person to provide orthodontics, especially in children, as they are more acceptng to long treatment times. Also, the child should be treated idealistically. 

There is nothing wrong with treating the adult the same way, but often adults want to be treated more realistically and in shorter time intervals. So, addressing mostly cosmetic concerns for adults can take less time and can be provided by general dentists and orthodontists.

The types of braces and cost ranges could be stated as the following approximations:

  • Comprehensive orthodontics with metal wires and bands ($3,500 to $8,500) but longer treatment times #orthodontics
  • Lingual Braces - placed on the lingual (tongue side) of the teeth so that they are not visible ($7,000 to $10,000) #braces
  • Aligner Therapy with "Invisible" clear aligners ($5,000) is an average fee
  • Six Month Smiles - Short Term Orthodontics - clear braces, less visible, faster treatment times ($3,000 to $5500) #sixmonthsmiles
