How Much do Braces Cost in SC?
though we can offer a ballpark estimate to answer the question, “How Much do Braces Cost in SC?” we can’t give a concrete figure. Because every mouth is different, the cost of braces can vary widely from one patient to the next. The best way to get a quote is to take advantage of the free consultation offered at Pitner Orthodontics.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Braces
The cost of traditional braces can range from $3,000 to $7,000, while the cost of Invisalign braces can range from $3,500 to $8,000. Some of the things that factor into the cost differences are:
- Length of treatment
- Type of braces (traditional vs. Invisalign)
- Physical location or region
- Degree of alignment problems
Invisalign used to be much more expensive than traditional braces. With advancements in technology, the price has dropped and is now comparable. While conventional braces are still slightly cheaper, the comparative cost makes Invisalign a viable option for teens and adults.
Dr. Leslie Pitner specializes in Invisalign treatment for teens and adults. As a Diamond+ Invisalign Provider, Dr. Pitner is a top-notch orthodontist and the #1 Invisalign provider in SC. Pitner Orthodontics wants to help you get the perfect smile you have always dreamed of having.
