A Sensible Look at the Cost of Braces for Adults


Today, braces have grown up and are now worn by grown-ups everywhere. In fact, around one million Americans over the age of 18 are proudly wearing braces. But getting braces is a big decision, so ask your general dentist and discover these tips on affordable braces to see if they are best for you.

Why Adults are Getting Braces

Whether or not you had braces as a child, you can correct any dental concerns by getting them as an adult. By getting braces, you can even avoid many dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, speaking problems, headaches, and more. Plus, with so many adults wearing braces today, you can feel confident and comfortable while going through your treatment. If you’re still self-conscious, new advances have made braces smaller and less noticeable than ever before. Besides traditional metal, you can now get tooth-colored ceramic braces, lingual braces placed behind the teeth, or even invisible braces. Your dentist will discuss your options based on your health, needs, and budget.

What to Consider about Braces Cost

You’re probably wondering, how much do braces cost? The cost of braces will depend on the type you choose, your personal needs, and even the city where you receive treatment. If you have dental insurance, it may help with some of the braces cost, depending on your coverage. But if you lack insurance or need more assistance, there are simple solutions to getting affordable braces.

The Key to Affordable Braces

If worrying about the cost of braces is keeping you up at night, there are options you may not have considered. One is CareCredit, which is not insurance, but rather a credit card that allows you to finance healthcare treatment. Accepted by more than 175,000 providers nationwide, it offers special financing options not available with other credit cards, plus convenient monthly payments. Another possibility is DentRite®, which is not a form of insurance, but a plan that provides major savings on dental procedures. It offers unlimited usage and membership options for individuals and families. Best of all, no one is turned down. With these options, you can get affordable braces to improve your smile.
