How much do braces cost?
The cost of braces varies with the type of braces and duration of treatment. In the U.S., braces can range from $3,000 to $7,000. Some insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost for children under 18 years of age. However, for adults, braces are typically classified as a cosmetic treatment and are usually not covered by insurance. If you do require braces to protect your oral health, such as correcting a misalignment to prevent decay, your insurance company may cover some of the costs.
