Orthodontists can help you fit braces into your budget. It is important to find the right treatment plan for both your dental issues and your financial situation. You can plan a consultation with your orthodontist or the financial department to work on a payment plan. Many clinics have in-house financing. Monthly payment plans help keep costs manageable for long-term orthodontic care. Dental insurance companies may cover part of your braces treatment if they are medically necessary, as well. Some types of braces are more affordable than others. Talk to your orthodontist to find the best treatment for your situation.
