no more headaches
We strive to simplify the process of paying for braces, but if you have more questions, please contact us. Below is a list of questions we commonly answer.
+ When do I pay?
Financing arrangements will be completed when treatment is started. You can pay in full or build a plan that fits your personal needs.
+ Will my dental insurance cover braces?
Many dental insurance plans cover the cost of orthodontics including Invisalign, metal, or clear braces. Insurance coverage varies depending on your plan. In most cases, you can contact your insurance provider to learn about what is covered or not covered. At your first appointment, we can show you what your insurance coverage will be.
+ Is invisalign more expensive than braces?
No. Treatment with Invisalign is almost always the same as the cost would be for comparable treatment with braces.
+ Is there an additional charge for retainers?
No. Your treatment fee will include any retainers that are needed to hold your teeth in their new position. It will also include all of your follow-up visits for the first year. However, there is a minimal charge to repair or replace broken or lost retainers.
+ What About Financing?
Some of our patients choose to pay in full for orthodontic treatment and can receive a small discount. However, most patients choose to finance their orthodontic treatment over the course of several months or even years. Our goal is to customize a plan that fits you and your financial needs.
+ Will my flexible spending account (FSA) cover my braces?
Orthodontic treatment almost always qualifies for FSA reimbursement. If your employer offers an FSA, let us know and we will verify your eligibility and help you get started.
+ Are there any other hidden costs or fees?
No. At Samuelson Orthodontics we don't like to nickel and dime our patients. The price you pay for your orthodontic treatment covers everything we do to complete your treatment. It even covers your retainer adjustments for a year after your treatment is complete. However, there is a minimal charge to repair or replace broken retainers.
