CALCULATE YOUR PAYMENT
During your initial consultation, your orthodontists will be able to determine your cost of treatment based on your specific needs. There are many factors that affect your cost of treatment, including the complexity and severity of your problem and the required length of treatment. The average cost of braces ranges from $3,500 to $8,000, with the national average at about $5,000.
There are many different agreements between insurance carriers and their subscribers; each contract provides a different benefit. Orthodontic insurance usually has a lifetime maximum for orthodontic services. This benefit is paid as a percentage of the orthodontic fee (diagnostic records, initial fee, monthly payments, etc.) until the benefit maximum has been reached. Contact your insurance company directly to find out more information regarding your orthodontic benefits.
A FSA allows you to set aside a portion of your paycheck to pay for eligible medical expenses. This is deducted from your paycheck, not subjected to payroll taxes, and transferred directly into your FSA.
Health Spending Amount
A HSA is a pre-tax benefit account used to pay for eligible medical, dental, and vision care expenses that aren't covered by your insurance plan.
YOUR ESTIMATED MONTHLY PAYMENT
This payment tool is provided to create an estimate of your monthly cost of orthodontic treatment and is provided to you "as-is." Payments cannot exceed estimated treatment months. For actual treatment costs, please schedule a consultation with one of our board certified orthodontists.
When you finance with CareCredit, you get the dental treatment you need, with zero down or minimal up-front investment.
