Cost of orthodontic treatment and insurance

What influences the cost of orthodontic treatment?

Your orthodontic treatment is planned specifically for your treatment needs.

Our clinic does not have a fixed treatment cost for every patient!

The cost of the individual orthodontic treatment is based on:

  • treatment needs
  • treatment objectives
  • complexity of the individual case
  • patient’s age
  • expected length of treatment
  • treatment modality (example: orthodontic treatment combined with orthognathic surgery)
  • types of appliances needed to treat your particular smile:
    • “braces”
    • expansion appliances
    • “nightgard”
    • removable appliances “retainers”
    • space maintainers
    • Invisalign, etc.

Your first visit to OrthoVille Orthodontics will include a thorough explanation of your treatment plan and the costs of the orthodontic treatment.
