Cost of orthodontic surgery

Malformations cannot be treated through orthodontics alone in some patients. This group of patients needs orthodontic surgery, which will naturally be more expensive due to surgery and severity of the problem.

On the other hand, the duration of orthodontic treatment varies according to the patient age, malformation severity, and hereditary background of malformations.

If the patient tends to use transparent (ceramic or composite) brackets, the total cost of treatment increases due to the high cost of such brackets.

Part of the cost is prepaid and the rest is paid during treatment in installments. Patients requiring orthodontics and mandibular surgery are informed of the cost of orthodontics, and the cost of surgery performed by the maxillofacial surgeon is independent of the orthodontics cost.

Frequently Asked Questions about Orthodontics Fees

1-How is the insurance coverage for orthodontic treatment?

3-Is the fee for orthodontic treatment of one improperly positioned tooth different from all teeth?

The important issue is the reason that has caused one tooth to be improperly positioned. The orthodontist will specify the treatment method and the time period required for orthodontic treatment after diagnosing the cause of disorder. Therefore, it could not be said that necessarily the orthodontics fee for a patient with one improperly positioned tooth will be less than a patient with abnormal alignment of all teeth.

4-Is the fee for rapid orthodontics less than long-term orthodontics?

It should be noted that there is no rapid orthodontics and some patients mistakenly refer to tooth restoration methods as rapid orthodontics. Sometimes the costs of restorative dentistry are more than orthodontics. However, if the disorders of jaw and teeth are not resolved fundamentally, the dental restoration will not be durable enough. As the teeth or jaws are not aligned in the standard position, they will be worn and damaged quickly.

5-How is the fee for orthodontics determined in 2020?

Like before, the fee for orthodontics is determined based on the duration of treatment and the type of disorder, the intensity of jaw disorder, removable or fixed apparatus, the need for jaw surgery, the need for tooth extraction, the need for using mini-screw implants, etc. The rate of orthodontics is different for each one of the disorders of teeth and jaw. Therefore, visiting orthodontist in person is inevitable to determine the precise fee for orthodontics. The patient will be informed of all the treatment costs at the examination session, which is free.

One of the reasons for extra costs during orthodontic treatment period is breaking of brackets. Therefore, this could be prevented simply by protecting the brackets and avoiding hard foods.

Enlarging the jaws and repositioning them are among difficult treatments. Sometimes a tooth may need to be extracted to relieve crowding or some patients may need jaw surgery.  Tooth extraction or surgery make the treatment difficult. Overall, the more intense the disorders, the higher the costs for orthodontics will be.

11-Why is the fee for orthodontic treatment higher in adults than children?

Orthodontic treatment in children is much easier than in adults. The treatment period in adults is longer than in children. This is because teeth have stopped growing in adults and as a result more time is required for treatment.

Yes, metal brackets cost less than ceramic brackets which are of the same color as teeth. Damon brackets are much more expensive than standard ones.
