Orthodontic treatment is an investment—in straighter teeth and a healthier mouth, and also in overall health, self-esteem, and quality of life. But for some families and individuals, the price can seem too much of an obstacle.
Final out-of-pocket costs vary depending on dental insurance coverage. But traditional braces in the U.S. typically cost thousands of dollars. Many people who recognize the importance of orthodontic care for their loved ones or themselves ask, “Isn’t there somewhere I can get affordable braces?”
When you receive care at Penn Dental Medicine (PDM), the answer is yes.
PDM treats orthodontics patients for both medical and cosmetic reasons. Most of our orthodontics patients are between 12 and 18 years old, but we’ve seen the national increase in adults seeking orthodontic treatment for ourselves, too. Some patients know they need treatment for pressing oral health reasons. Others want smiles that make them feel more comfortable and confident. We provide affordable orthodontics care that maximizes patients’ oral health and makes them feel better about themselves—and about their dental care budget.
