Was there a time when you considered getting braces, then decided, “I’d better not spend the money…”? Or maybe your teen is in need of braces, and you’re shopping around Bartow or Winter Haven for the best price.

Well, we’re to help! We’ve put together this short guide to help you understand the true cost of braces in 2021. (You may be surprised how affordable they can be with us!)

The Cost of Braces

So, what is the cost of braces and do you have to pay for orthodontic treatment in-full?

We’re happy to tell you that no, you don’t have to pay for braces upfront, in-full. We offer a number of affordable payment plans to help you cover the cost of treatment and make it more practical for your budget. We offer discounts, including discounts to families and discounts for paying upfront, in full, and we offer a Smile Warranty Program that goes towards the costs of your future treatment needs.

If you’re interested in our Smile Warranty Program please let our friendly treatment coordinator know during your first visit.

Meeting our patients’ needs is incredibly important to us! We believe everyone should get to experience a beautiful, healthy smile—no matter their financial situation.

When you visit us for your complimentary consultation, we’ll discuss your financial needs and work with you to create a payment plan that works with your budget.

How much do braces cost a month and how much do braces cost in Winter Haven?

There is no set monthly cost of braces, and your geographical location shouldn’t have a significant impact on the cost. All of our treatment plans are 100% personalized for each patient! Your monthly costs will depend on the length and difficulty of your treatment, the payment plan you choose and your insurance coverage (if you have ortho insurance).

The Cost of Not Getting Braces

Did you know an estimated 1.5 million people undergo orthodontic treatment every year?

That’s because orthodontic treatment isn’t just about the appearance of the smile; braces or Invisalign® can transform your smile, your bite functionality, your confidence, your self-esteem, your sleep quality—your entire quality of life! The benefits of braces go far beyond the appearance of the smile.

We believe a beautiful smile is truly invaluable. Believe it or not, many people who haven’t undergone treatment don’t realize how their dental condition is affecting their quality of life. The positions of your teeth and the alignment of your jaw bones have a significant impact on your vital functions (eating, sleeping and breathing).

If you have a dental or jaw misalignment, you may experience:

– Clenching or grinding teeth

-Poor self esteem

– Loud snoring

-Frequent mouth-breathing

-Restless sleep, waking up feeling unrested

-Popping, cracking, or locking of the jaw

-Jaw pain or soreness when biting or chewing

-Difficulty brush or flossing between certain teeth

These symptoms may have become normal for you, but they’re common indications of a narrow palate restricting the airways, misaligned jaw bones (overbite, underbite, open bite, cross bite), TMJ disorder and other treatable conditions.

Cost of Braces with Insurance

With orthodontic insurance, the cost of braces for adults, teens and kids is even lower. Typically, your insurance provider will cover a certain portion of your treatment costs and you can choose one of our affordable payment plans to cover the remaining cost of treatment.

We accept most major insurance plans. If you have orthodontic insurance, our team will help you file your insurance claims and paperwork to ensure that you get the most out of your insurance benefit.

At your first visit to our office, we’ll discuss your insurance coverage and determine your out-of-pocket cost.

How much do braces cost without insurance?

If you don’t have insurance coverage, we’ll work with you to develop a financial plan that makes braces affordable and practical for you.
