Orthodontic Costs In Winnipeg
For many folks, the thought of getting braces can be overwhelming. It’s important to remember that getting braces is an investment in yourself and your future. The best way to start your orthodontic journey is by speaking with the team at Rykiss Orthodontics so that you can better understand the costs and treatment options available to you.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get asked at our practice.
What is the average cost of braces in Winnipeg?
One thing that every patient should know when it comes to getting braces is that the price will depend on the treatment plan created for each individual.
One of the first things our orthodontist will do is assess the situation and create a custom-tailored treatment plan for each patient. This is why it's so crucial for our patients to schedule a consultation with the Rykiss team so that we can look at the current state of your teeth and discuss the best treatment options for you.
Factors Affecting the Price of Braces
Many factors influence the final cost of braces treatment. They include:
The type of orthodontic treatment
The type of treatment you receive also impacts the overall expected costs. The most common treatment has been traditional metal braces.
Type and severity of the dental problem
Braces are used to correct many problems, and the type and severity of your problem significantly affect the total cost of treatment.
Common problems include crowding and spacing, gaps between the teeth, and large or crooked teeth. If your teeth are only slightly crooked and you only need a few minor adjustments, the cost of your treatment could be significantly less than if you need extensive treatment or multiple corrections.
The Length of Treatment
How long will it take for the braces to be effective? Is it a few months or several years? How long does it take for the effects of braces to be visible?
The length of time it takes for braces to be effective depends on the severity of your malocclusion, the time of onset, and the severity of the treatment.
Your oral health
The state of your teeth and periodontal health is critical to the overall cost of your treatment. The condition of your gums and the way your teeth fit together, and your bite are all factors that play a role in how long your treatment will last and how it will be completed.
Asking your orthodontist
Our orthodontic team has a wide range of information when it comes to your treatment. It's always best to consult with your orthodontist first to determine all the options you have.
