Cost of Adult Orthodontics & Adult Braces Frisco, TX of Adult Orthodontics & Adult Braces Frisco, TXAdult braces vary in cost and according to the course of treatment selected by your orthodontist. Orthodontic treatment can vary in price depending on the patient needs. The Frisco TX office of Texas Dental Specialists sees many adults for orthodontic care with Clear Correct or Invisalign.
How much does it cost for adult orthodontics lasting 12 months?
The price for adult braces is different for different patients. You can expect to pay around $1,750 on average for a adult limited treatment of 1 year. Orthodontic treatment with a full set of braces generally lasts for approximately 2 years, so the majority of people are not a good fit for a limited treatment.
Limited treatment is intended to address a problem with only one or a few teeth, or to minimize a developing problem. The treatment recommended at the time of the initial screening is of a limited nature and is not intended to address all problems that exist, or that may later develop.
Overall, treatment time is dependent upon the seriousness of the problem, patient compliance, and jaw growth. Adult treatment might take slightly more time since adults have no jaw growth remaining to help with bite correction. Most adults are very cooperative in not breaking their appliances, maintaining good oral hygiene, and wearing auxiliaries (e.g. rubber bands) as prescribed. This compliance can negate the majority of the increased treatment time.
