The cost of braces or other orthodontic treatment should never keep you from achieving the smile you've always wanted. Getting that perfect smile is an important investment because you are investing in yourself, which can pay important dividends in terms of self esteem, confidence, career and relationships. And because the cost of treatment using the Damon System of braces is usually comparable to the cost of traditional braces as well as invisible aligners like Invisalign®, a broader, fuller smile with great facial aesthetics is now within your reach.
On average, braces cost anywhere between $3,800 and $8,000 depending on individual cases. Only your Damon Doctor can truly determine the cost of braces based on your specific needs. Factors that will influence the cost of braces are case difficulty, length of treatment, insurance coverage, region of the country and more.
Many dental insurance plans cover the cost of orthodontics including treatment with the Damon System. Insurance coverage will vary so check with your provider. Talk to your insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage for your treatment.
Many Damon Doctors offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, many with no down payment and flexible interest.
Many employers offer Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) which allow you to set aside a portion of your paycheck in order to pay for qualified medical expenses.
The money you decide to set aside is deducted from your paycheck and transferred directly into your FSA. After incurring eligible medical costs, you can then submit your receipt for reimbursement from your FSA.
The good news is that orthodontic treatment usually qualifies for FSA reimbursement. If your employer offers FSA and you know you'd like to invest in a nicer smile and straighter teeth, plan ahead and consult your benefits department. In the long run, you'll save money while getting all the benefits the Damon System has to offer. It's an easy and convenient way to get the smile you want.
