Ways to Pay for Orthodontic Treatment


Paying for braces can be a significant financial investment for many families in the Sioux Falls, SD area. That investment becomes even greater when several family members need braces or orthodontic treatment. Also, some types of orthodontics can be more expensive than others. Understanding the various options available for paying for braces can help to remove some of the financial stress. Drs. Kevin Horner and Keri Barrow want you to have all of the information you need to make an informed decision about how your family will pay for orthodontic treatment.

Dental Insurance. Insurance is one of the most common ways to pay for braces. It is important to understand that not all dental plans offer coverage for braces, but the right plan can help to cover 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 from plan to plan, but many dental insurance plans will help to take approximately 50 percent off the total cost of braces. When shopping for a dental plan, it should be understood that most plans will not provide coverage if the patient is already undergoing orthodontic treatment. Also, some plans require a waiting (or grace) period, so it is important that you do not wait until orthodontic treatment is deemed necessary to begin shopping for dental insurance. Otherwise, you may find that treatment is not covered, or that you need to delay treatment until the waiting period has passed.
