Bringing healthy smiles to patients who live in Alpharetta, Roswell and Kennesaw means helping families budget for braces. Dr. Ruchir Patel and Dr. Kal Thakkar and the friendly staff at iClear Orthodontics are here to answer any questions you may have about paying for braces treatment. Here are some of the questions asked most often.
How Much Do Braces Cost?
Every person’s teeth, jaw, and facial structure differs, making orthodontic treatment unique to each patient. Visiting Dr. Patel and Dr. Thakkar at iClear Orthodontics for a consultation is the best way to know for sure how much braces will cost you or a family member. Although the cost of braces can range from $2,000 to $8,000, no set price exists. Your cost will depend upon factors, including the type of braces selected, whether any additional orthodontic treatment, such as a palatal expander or headgear is needed, and the length of your treatment.
What Is Included In The Cost Of Braces?
During your initial appointment with Dr. Patel and Dr. Thakkar at iClear Orthodontics, you will receive a plan with the price of your entire treatment. The cost will include all X-rays, impressions, additional appliances (if required), follow-up appointments and one retainer for after your braces are removed. Please keep in mind that additional costs may be incurred on lost or damaged appliances.
Does Insurance Cover The Cost Of Braces?
Many dental insurance policies cover at least part of the cost of braces. Because coverage can vary, you should check your policy prior to committing to your treatment. Be sure to ask about how much you will be responsible for paying in deductibles as well. The office staff at iClear Orthodontics is happy to help you check and understand your benefits.
How Much Are Braces Without Insurance?
The cost of braces is the same, with or without insurance coverage, and is determined on a case-by-case basis. iClear Orthodontics is dedicated to making the cost of braces affordable, regardless of whether patients carry dental insurance.
Can I Get Financing?
iClear Orthodontics offers several financing options to help keep braces treatment within your budget.
The most popular option is our interest-free in-house financing, which spreads out the cost of your braces over the course of the treatment, resulting in affordable monthly payments.
External financing options can help extend payments beyond the treatment time. iClear Orthodontics accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover, as well as CareCredit® cards. CareCredit® extends financing up to 60 months with a reduced APR and fixed monthly payments. OrthoFi is a financing program that lets you select the down payment and ongoing monthly payment amounts. With OrthoFi, you can customize your payment plan.
Will My Flexible Spending Account Cover My Braces?
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) are offered by employers and allow employees to set aside a portion of their paycheck, tax-free, to pay for qualified medical expenses.
Most orthodontic treatments do qualify for partial or full FSA reimbursement. The best way to find out if braces are covered by your plan is by contacting your company’s HR or benefits department.
