The cost of your traditional orthodontics can vary, which is why you may see a wide-range of numbers during research. This is because there are a handful of factors that can impact the price of your treatment. The severity of your misalignment, as well as any bite issues, will be the main variables that influence cost. Plus, most insurance plans can cover around 50% of the treatment, which will help minimize out-of-pocket spending.
