There’s no question, a lifelong investment in a better, healthier smile for you or your child is worth the cost of treatment. Still, the first question many patients and parents of patients ask is, “How much will this cost?” Every patient is different, and the final cost of braces will depend on several factors, including
- Whether braces are needed on just the upper teeth, just the lower teeth, or both
- Your insurance coverage
- The length of time needed to wear the braces
- The type of braces chosen
- If additional procedures are required to complete treatment
At Old Metairie Orthodontics, we offer a variety of braces, all of which are priced competitively for Metairie, LA, and the Greater New Orleans region. Our board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Celeste Block, and our highly trained staff will work together with you and your insurance provider to create a high-quality treatment plan that works within your budget.
When you come in for your first appointment, we will discuss each of your options, including traditional braces, lingual braces, and Invisalign®. Your personal preference, as well as the position of your teeth and other factors, will all be considered when we determine the best course of treatment for you. Once your personalized treatment plan has been created, our staff can go over the costs and details with you and options for payment.
