Parents, brace yourselves. Your child’s orthodontic treatment for a fine-tuned beautiful smile can cost you thousands of dollars.
Most orthodontic treatment begins between ages nine and 14, according to the American Association of Orthodontists. And while your kid will have to grin and bear a metallic smile for a couple of years, braces can be necessary for long-term dental health and well-being.
Dental insurance probably won’t take much (if any) of a bite out of the bill. That’s if you or your family has coverage that even considers dental specialty services. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only about 48 percent of workers have access to employer-offered dental plans.
While it’s uncommon for dental insurance to cover orthodontia, here’s a tip to help your budget align with your kids smile: join a discount dental program.
Go online, enter your ZIP code, view sample savings, select an orthodontist nearby and pay a small annual fee without limits for a plan such as OrthoCare Orthodontic Discount Program. The orthodontic plan can save you 15 to 20 percent on braces and services performed.
An affordable solution like this can brace you for the cost of your child’s beautiful, straight smile.
