Planning for the Cost of Braces and Orthodontic Treatment

For many families in the Sioux Falls area, paying for braces can be a significant investment. That investment can become even larger when multiple family members need braces or orthodontic treatment. Additionally, some types of orthodontics can be more expensive than other types. Understanding the various options for paying for braces can help to remove some of the financial stress.


Insurance is one of the most common methods for paying for braces. It is important to understand that not all dental plans offer coverage for braces, but the right plan can help to defray a significant portion of the cost for braces. In choosing a dental insurance package, it is important to focus on finding a package that specifically covers orthodontists. The precise coverage provided will vary among plans, but many dental insurance plans will help to shave approximately 50 percent off the total cost of braces. In shopping for a dental plan, it should be understood that most plans will not provide coverage if the patient already has braces. Also, some plans require a waiting period, so it is important that you do not wait until orthodontic treatment is necessary. Otherwise, you may find that treatment is not covered or that you need to delay treatment until the waiting period has passed.
