Hi, my name is Dr. Lyle, I’m one of the dentists at Dental House Group, as well as one of the principal dentists of New Gisborne Dental House. Today, we’re going to talk about the cost of Orthodontic Treatment. This is the question we often get asked from our patients who wish to straighten their teeth and don’t really know where to start.
First of all, there are many different treatments available to straighten your teeth. There are traditional braces, clear braces, as well as clear aligner systems. For any dental procedure, it is important to know that each person is unique and as such, each orthodontic case is different. The cost will therefore depend on the individual situation and the type of work needed. Factors such as treatment time, case difficulty, and the type of system chosen will impact the cost of treatment.
Traditional braces usually cost the least, and newer and more advanced products such as Invisalign will cost more. There are cases where traditional braces will be more suitable, and others where clear aligners will suit your lifestyle better.
Treatment time can range anywhere from 2 months to 4 years, depending on what sort of treatment is required. Fast braces or Invisalign can be used to straighten teeth in a shorter time frame before a big event, however it is not as stable as having treatment for at least 12 months. Regardless of the treatment mode, a set of retainers must be worn after treatment is completed, and this is for life.
Orthodontic treatments normally start from around three thousand dollars, whereas longer and more complex treatments can reach the nine thousand dollars mark. So as you can see, there are many variables which can affect the cost of your orthodontic treatment.
Here at the Dental House group, we perform all forms of orthodontic treatment depending on your wants and needs. So if you would like us to help you straighten your teeth, Simply call us on 1800GENTLE, direct message us on social media, or complete the enquiry form on our website, and our friendly team will be in touch to organise your consultation.
