One of the most common questions we receive at OoLi Orthodontics is around how much the cost of treatment will be. This is a fair question since it can vary from patient to patient depending on a number of factors. We believe any orthodontic treatment is a wise investment in your overall health, so to help with figuring out how much your treatment will be, we’ve put together some ballpark figures below.
While each unique case can vary, we hope the information below is helpful as you research what orthodontic treatment is right for you. If you have any questions about your specific treatment cost, we’d be happy to help through a free consultation.
The Cost of Braces
There are a couple of factors that contribute to the cost of braces, like what kind of braces you choose and the severity of your case. In general, though, you can expect a traditional metal braces treatment from a board-certified orthodontist, like Dr. Park, to start around $6,500 for children and $7,500 for adults. Insurance can help you pay for braces, but the amount of coverage varies depending on your plan. Some dental insurance plans cover a portion of the cost of braces, while others cover the full cost. To find out how much your insurance will cover, contact OoLi Orthodontics or your insurance company. We will be able to tell you what your plan covers, what your deductible is, and what your out-of-pocket costs will be.

The majority of our patients at OoLi Orthodontics fall within in a $6,500-$7,500 price range, which includes correcting moderate bite issues. Orthodontic cases that are rare but severe can cost closer to $8,500 and require additional time to fully and properly treat the issues. For a more in-depth look at the cost of braces, visit our blog post on the topic.
We also have a Braces Calculator that can give you a more specific cost of treatment. While your actual cost of treatment can vary, it’s a more accurate starting point to understanding what your braces cost might be.
The Cost of Invisalign
In contrast to determining the cost of braces, Invisalign doesn’t come with various option types, which helps make the overall cost a little bit easier to calculate. The severity of your case will play the biggest role in figuring out your personalized cost of Invisalign. The range patients can expect to fall within is the comparable to braces–in the $7,000-$7,500 range.
For those with more serious issues needing to be addressed, the cost might be closer to $8,000 for additional appointments and aligner trays to fully correct any issues. Take a look at our blog post on the cost of Invisalign treatment for more information.
Cost of Early Treatment for Children
While not as common as orthodontic care for children or adults, early orthodontic treatment for young children can be a good preventative option and help save on orthodontic issues in the long run. Early corrective treatment can involve fixing underbites, crossbites, crowded teeth, or overly spaced teeth to name a few. Our early treatment falls within the $3,000 to $4,000 range.
Insurance Coverage for Orthodontic Treatment
Most insurance plans today cover some kind of orthodontic treatment, so we recommend checking with your provider to see if they cover braces, Invisalign, or both. This is a good starting point in determining your cost of treatment since you’ll know how much your insurance will cover. We’re happy to check with your insurance provider if you’re unsure what level of coverage you’ll have for your treatment, and will help you process any forms to ensure you get the maximum coverage offered.

To help make this investment as manageable as possible, we offer flexible payment and financing options. We offer all of our patients 0% interest financing with no down payment required.
