While it's important to keep in mind the lifetime value that orthodontics offers, we know you have specific cost questions, so don't be afraid to ask. You may discover the price tag is considerably lower than you ever thought. Cost, of course, depends on the nature of the problem. Many orthodontic problems require only limited treatment.

Your orthodontic specialist will be happy to discuss fees. He or she may offer payment plans to help meet individual fmancial needs. In addition, many dental insurance plans now include orthodontic benefits for just a few dollars a month.
