What are the benefits of braces?
To help you decide whether to get braces, you should consider the benefits in addition to the cost. Braces can improve the alignment and spacing of your teeth, and this can have many benefits like:
- Better teeth development
- A better bite
- An improved ability to chew food
- Easier brushing and flossing
- Fewer cavities
- A lower risk of gum disease
- The alleviation of a speech impairment
- Less teeth grinding
- An improved smile
- And more!
Also, braces have become more affordable over the years and are more affordable than other options, so affordability is another big benefit of braces!
Are braces more affordable than Invisalign?
Invisalign is another option for improved teeth alignment and spacing. Invisalign clear aligners are great for many people, but typically, braces are more affordable. However, this depends on the complexity of a patient’s problem. You should speak with a dentist about which option would be more affordable for you.
What is the average cost for braces?
Today, braces are more accessible and affordable than they’ve ever been. There are different options for braces too, so you can choose the one that’s most affordable for you. Traditional metal braces cost around $3,000 to $7,000. If you need braces that work really quickly, then Fastbraces could be perfect for you, and they’re very affordable for many patients!
Prices can vary depending on the provider and the location of the provider. You’ll find competitive pricing with us here at Best Dental Care, and you may also find financing options with us.
Can I do a payment plan for braces?

We work with two financing companies, Care Credit and Lending Club, and we also offer in-house financing for certain services.

Can I claim the cost of braces through my insurance?
Some health and dental insurance plans cover braces. Many plans cover braces for children. However, if your plan doesn’t include orthodontic coverage for braces, you can purchase supplemental orthodontic insurance. Best Dental Care works with most major insurers, and many of them can help cover the cost of braces or Fastbraces.
