There are two main factors that determine the cost of your braces treatment. The first is the type of braces used. For example, traditional braces in metal or ceramic are relatively affordable options while lingual braces are the most expensive because they involve customised brackets and are complicated to install and adjust.
The second factor is the complexity of the orthodontic treatment. Individuals with more severe malocclusions, such as an underbite, may require a longer treatment to properly align their teeth. This means more visits to the orthodontist for adjustments and cleaning, which translates into a lengthier and costlier treatment. Some patients may also require jaw surgery as part of their treatment plan.
During your initial consultations, our NTUC Health Denticare orthodontist will carefully evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums before proposing a treatment plan.
