As every parent knows, raising children comes with significant expenses. Often times, paying for braces will be one of those expenses. Not all orthodontists charge the same for the same services and available options will vary. By fully exploring your insurance options you have the best chance of getting your braces covered by insurance either fully or partially.


Having your braces covered by insurance is among the most common ways that people pay for braces. Not every plan will cover braces. By choosing the right plan, however, you can defray a significant amount of the cost. When you choose your dental insurance plan, make sure it doesn’t only cover dental treatment. Your plan will need to cover orthodontic treatments as well. Most orthodontics plans will cover about half of the total cost of braces minus certain unexpected costs.

What Insurance Covers

Not all insurance plans are created equal, so making certain of having your braces covered by insurance depends on what coverage is available. First visits are often free. Some people will submit their insurance information and assume the rest will be covered as well- only to be surprised later. If you plan to use your employer’s insurance, make sure it offers coverage for braces specifically. If it does not, you will need to shop around for another policy. Keep in mind that dental coverage and orthodontic coverage are not always considered to be the same thing. Read the fine print to make sure you are getting the coverage you’re looking for.

Love, love, love the whole staff here! I am being treated for adult orthodontic surgical braces to correct my underbite. Throughout the entire process from the initial consultation, finance/payment, greeting/exit of each appointment, and of course the talented and genuine staff that treat your teeth each time,
We were in an emergent situation after a playground accident/trauma and within 10 mins of calling and upon arrival, we were greeted, evaluated, and treated immediately on our first visit.
