One of the most popular options for paying for children's braces is a payment plan. Many orthodontists offer in-house monthly installment plans to pay for braces.
The average cost of children's braces is about $5,000. Payment plans make braces more affordable by allowing families to make smaller payments on a monthly basis. Payment plans differ depending on the orthodontist, the type of braces required, and the length of treatment. The final installment payment is usually required to be paid during the last month of treatment. Various factors, such as whether or not a down payment is required and how much the down payment is, determine the monthly payment amount.
