Cost of Traditional Braces

While braces require a significant investment, beautiful teeth are priceless! Braces will improve your smile, your oral health and function, and boost your self-esteem and confidence.

Traditional metal braces are the least costly option for orthodontic straightening of your teeth and jaw. Costs will vary from patient to patient based on the complexity of each individual’s case, the duration of your treatment, the type of braces chosen and your location. Orthodontic treatment is especially personalized based on your needs, and on the length of treatment. Most often metal braces are worn for about 2 years.

Metal braces are very efficient, effective, and affordable. Adult braces typically cost more than for children. The full cost of metal braces includes the metal parts and the application and periodic progress assessments.

This cost may can increase if the patient does not keep their teeth clean resulting in cavities and gum disease. Then the total cost of treating these dental problems increases the total cost of your new smile. So, it is in your best interest to follow your Sphinx Orthodontist instructions.

At Sphinx Orthodontics in Edmonton, AB, you can get a better estimate of costs by seeing the Sphinx orthodontist for a consultation. They will conduct an examination, and evaluation to determine your treatment options, taking into consideration all the financial factors that are involved.

In Canada, the Federal Government and provincial governments offer some tax credits for medical expenses involved with orthodontics. But if treatment is solely for cosmetic reasons, there are no tax credits.
