There are a variety of teeth straightening options available to you these days, and each come with their own prices so it’s not only helpful to know what each option is, but also how they differ in cost.
That’s why in this article we’re exploring the various types of braces on offer, their costs, how to compare and whether health insurance can support you.
Types of braces available
When it comes to choosing a teeth-straightening solution, it’s always a good idea to first do some research on all the options available. Here are the most common teeth straightening treatments today that can help you achieve your dream smile.
These are what most people think of when they think of braces. Traditional metal braces use a series of metal wires and brackets to adjust the position of your teeth. The brackets are fixed to the teeth, and the wires are used to apply appropriate pressure to achieve the desired movement.
Traditional metal braces are the oldest type of braces, and are very reliable. They’re still commonly used and are often the ‘go-to’ option for children.
Other than the cost, another disadvantage to metal braces, are their aesthetics. Metal braces are incredibly noticeable, which is why many prefer more discreet options.

Through an initial assessment, we will be able to guide you on how your teeth would respond to Invisalign®. Your journey will be planned out, with the treatment time and costs evaluated before we begin to ensure there are no nasty surprises or unmet expectations.
