Patients looking to improve their smiles can rejoice. Orthodontic practices have advanced considerably, and advances in traditional orthodontic gear have given way to newer, sleeker options. Heidi Harman Orthodontics has been dedicated to providing the best service possible to Kansas City, MO. Using only state of the art dental technology, Dr. Harman’s practice has improved the lives of patients across the region, and does so at a rate which will not break the bank.

Weighing Your Possibilities

Whether considering the more traditional option; braces, or opting for a much less noticeable treatment called Invisalign, there is a viable solution for everyone. Braces have long been around, and are a proven solution to fixing a subpar smile. However, we know that this is not ultimately the best option suited to everyone. Some may be hesitant to flash a smile complete with traditional braces due to cosmetic reasons. While others may not mind so long as positive results are seen as the outcome. Luckily over 6 million people have chosen and had success with the alternate option, Invisalign. Not only will Invisalign be virtually invisible, but these aligners are completely removable for ease of eating, and drinking. Invisalign is not only convenient but does just as well of a job straightening teeth. With both options being priced at a reasonable cost, the decision is yours to make.

Pricing Out Results

Considerably similar to breaking down the cost of having braces, the Kansas City Invisalign cost is based on individual factors that are different for each patient. As a result, Heidi Harman Orthodontics provide a free initial consultation where Dr. Harman has the opportunity to assess your needs and evaluate treatment goals that best suit you. As human beings, we are unique right down to individual teeth. So with that being said, different mouths call for different actions.

Typically, the number of visits has the most to do with either the cost of Invisalign or braces. Invisalign can even wind up being more cost effective than braces if the patient is thought to respond better to this type of treatment. Although typically we are looking at a slight increase in cost when it comes to Invisalign due to the nature of reasonably new technology. It all comes down to individual needs, and what winds up being the right course of action for each and every patient. Stop by, and see what your options are for a set of beautiful teeth.

How Much Do Braces Cost?

The average cost of braces can vary for each individual case and is usually dependent on personal factors such as treatment length and location.

During your first free visit at H2O Orthodontics, we will check your insurance coverage and design a plan that tailor fits your treatment needs and budget.  If your insurance does not cover orthodontic care, we have payment plans with interest-free installments to suit monthly budgets.  We also accept debit cards, most major credit cards, and offer family discounts to qualifying patients. We can also factor in use of a Health Savings Account (HSA) that can help keep you up to date and on time with all your payments.

Types of Braces

  • Metal braces – the most common type made of high grade stainless steel, now made to be smaller, durable, and more comfortable then ever.
  • Nickel free – made for patients with a nickel allergy or hypersensitivity
  • Damon braces – self-ligating braces that allows wires to slide back and forth within brackets, eliminating the use of elastics.
  • Clear braces – made of translucent ceramic porcelain that doesn’t stain
  • Gold plated – made of electroplated 24k gold, these luxurious braces are another alternative for people with a nickel allergy or hypersensitivity.
  • Invisalign – clear aligners generated by computer simulation to gradually move teeth. Removable and virtually invisible.

How much does Invisalign cost?

The average cost of Invisalign can actually be comparable to the regular braces cost in certain cases.  Depending on factors such as treatment needs and length, find out if Invisalign is the right choice for you.  It offers unique advantages such as being removable, which allows you to still enjoy your favorite foods and also makes maintenance much easier.  These clear aligners are also virtually invisible, ideal for young teens and adult professionals alike, as they wont interfere with your social or personal life.
