Many parents want to give their children the best possible start in life. Part of that is ensuring their teeth are healthy and nice to look at. After all, no one wants to feel like they can’t smile broadly in their graduation or wedding photos. If your child’s teeth aren’t aligned, they may suffer from jaw problems, too.
But many parents are concerned about the cost of braces. The video posted here should help you get an idea of what you might spend on one child’s set of braces, but it is important to note that every orthodontic treatment will carry a different cost.
According to the video, braces can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to ten thousand dollars. With so much price variation, you may need to consult an orthodontist to get an accurate cost estimate for your child.
Some factors that drive up the cost of treatment are treatment time and treatment complexity. If your child just needs to wear traditional braces for a few months to correct some alignment problems, you shouldn’t pay a lot. If your child has a jaw too small for their teeth, the cost will likely go up substantially.
