re: Braces for your kids


My wife just had hers taken off a couple weeks ago. I paid $4500 total. Insurance didn't cover braces. This in included all appointments and adjustments. She gets her retainer next week.

This.

We got my son's when he was 9 and now are on a second round. Good thing that first round wasn't a complete waste of money.
Same here. Daughter though. Some baby teeth aren't coming on their own.

I bet the ortho that didn't think you kid needed braces was close to retirement and didn't think he could complete the case before he hung up his shingle.


You might be correct but my kids got their braces on in February and their first followup visit was in May. I found this odd because it seemed all their friends with braces were going once a month for adjustments. My kid's appointments were spaced out for every 4 months.

Like I stated, their teeth were pretty straight but I was told they had a small overbite that needed to be correct. Since I couldn't really tell a differnce once they came off, I don't think they really needed them in the first place but that is just my opinion.

I had the invisalign a few years ago. It was $4k. Insurance covered $2k of the $4k. Interest free payments.

Thanks for all of the advice guys. I just wanted to have an idea of what to expect when I meet w/the doc next month.

If there is no severe bite issue, you can wait.

If the upper or lower jaw is underdeveloped, and you miss the window when they're young, you're looking at orthognathic surgery
