Bite irregularities can differ in terms of how numerous and severe they are. Among these differences, treatment needs can vary similarly. More adults are seeking orthodontic correction today, so a look at prices for treatment in this age group can be worthwhile.
What Requires Correction?
Determining what bite irregularities are involved is a first step towards figuring the cost of treatment. While different types of braces do vary as far as what they can correct, most can address cases of overbite, underbite, crossbite, and overcrowding. Regardless of which braces are chosen, however, treatment can become more complex if more issues are present, resulting in a higher price overall. Within types of bite irregularities, increased severity can raise treatment costs by requiring longer treatment time.
Various Orthodontic Treatments
Basic dental braces, consisting of metal brackets and wires, are available to the widest range of adults, but other options may be possible as well based on needs and goals. Adults are more often choosing very discreet treatments, such as Invisalign, as well as ceramic or lingual braces, which are less visible than metal braces. Adults who only need very slight treatment may be eligible for short-term orthodontics, such as Invisalign Express and Six Month Braces.
