How Much do Braces Cost Monthly? (Hint: it’s Less Than You Think!)

How much do braces cost monthly? Braces are a major investment in your health, but they are also a financial investment. Orthodontic work can be life changing, and have a positive impact on everything from your health to your confidence and social interactions. 

However, many patients avoid or postpone getting treatments like braces, because they fear they are too unaffordable. 

At Glen Dental Centre, we believe that oral health should be accessible to everyone, no matter your budget. At our clinic, how you pay is completely up to you. Let’s explore the cost of braces and dive into the monthly price breakdown.

Contrary to popular belief, patients can get braces at any age and they can still benefit from the results. The most noticeable result of braces is beautifully aligned teeth, however, there are several benefits, including: 

  • Teeth that are easier to clean 
  • Ability to eat the foods you like 
  • Ability to speak and pronounce words properly 
  • Confidence to smile without hesitation 
  • Reduced risk of trapped bacteria between teeth 
  • Jaw alignment

Payment Methods for Braces in Coquitlam 

At our office, you can pay in whichever way is the most convenient for you and your family. Our team is flexible and our goal is accessibility. We do not want you to feel as though braces are unattainable due to the price. 

Dental Benefits Plan for Braces 

We make using your dental benefits plan as easy as possible by using direct billing to all major dental benefits plans. This means you just need to sit back and relax while we reach out to your health insurance provider. 

Some dental insurance and extended health plans do fully or partially cover orthodontic work for plan members. 

Our team will be able to check with your specific provider to check and see if there are any coverage options for your specific case. Even partial coverage by an extended health plan can make a big difference in the cost of braces. 

Pay for Braces in Instalments

Save your money for the things that really count and pay for braces in instalments. Most instalment plans can start at as little as $100 per month. With more costly and complex cases, the price can reach $300 per month, but even then, we can work out an ideal monthly payment scenario that meets your financial needs. 

Use a Combined Payment Method 

It is also possible to use a combined method of payment for braces. Sometimes, dental benefits may only cover part of your treatment. In these cases, you can pay partly with benefits and partly in instalments. 

If dental benefits do not cover your treatment, you can pay a sum of the cost upfront and then pay in instalments, to help bring the monthly payment price down. Our team is flexible and we want to make this easy for you so that you can get the treatment you need.
