How Much Do Braces Cost?

Dr. Glaser and our team at Glaser Orthodontics are committed to providing affordable, high quality orthodontic treatment such as braces throughout the Cortlandt Manor, Peekskill, and surrounding Westchester County areas.

The Cost of Braces

The average cost of braces can vary and is dependent on specific personal factors such as treatment length and location.  Here at Glaser Orthodontics our goal is to make high quality orthodontic care affordable for every budget. We offer a variety of payment options to fit your needs.  You may receive the benefit of reduced personal costs through your insurance coverage.  In addition, we also accept most major credit cards and even offer financing options as well.

Types of Braces

  • In-Ovation R – a revolutionary new system of traditional braces that can significantly shorten treatment time. They are smaller in size and offer better hygiene then traditional braces.
  • In-Ovation C – translucent in color for cosmetic appeal, these use a self-ligating bracket system to enhance patient comfort and shorten treatment time.
  • Invisalign – clear aligners that are computer simulated to gradually align teeth. These are made to be comfortable, removable and virtually invisible.

How much does Invisalign cost?

The average cost of Invisalign can be comparable to the average cost of braces in some cases, depending on your specific treatment needs.  The advantages they offer have made them a popular choice, especially amongst teenagers and adult professionals, who want the benefits of braces without them affecting social or personal life.  They allow you to continue enjoying your favorite foods and doing the activities you love without getting in the way.

If you or a loved one is seeking orthodontic care and are located in the Cortlandt Manor, Peekskill, Croton, Montrose, Buchanan, Yorktown, or greater Westchester County area, contact us today.  We offer a complimentary consultation and screening to address any questions or concerns and decide the best treatment plan for your personal needs.

Make Braces Fit Into Your Life in Westchester NY

When you get braces at Glaser Orthodontics there are a few things you’ll have to adjust to get optimal results in the shortest amount of time. If you have any questions about the “do’s and don’ts” of living with braces, feel free to ask Dr. Glaser or any member of our Cortlandt Manor team during your next adjustment!

When you have braces there are a few types of food that can damage your brackets and bend your wires leading to more appointments and longer treatment times. Any foods that have hard insides, like fruit pits, or meat on bones, cut into pieces and chew on your back teeth; with braces, that is the best way to “eat” them. By simply avoiding sticky, chewy, crunchy, and hard foods, your Orthodontic experience will be much easier with fewer “emergencies.”

You’ll never believe the amount of food that can get stuck between your braces when you eat! In addition to causing bad breath and tooth decay, it looks pretty gross. It’s so important to brush your teeth after every meal and floss every day. It may be a hassle, but it’ll all be worth it in the end when you show off your bright, healthy smile. It is a hassle to learn the new routine but worth it in the quality of your tooth enamel and gums when we are done.

Protecting your smile when you play sports is essential whether you have braces or not. Mouthguards help protect your teeth and gums from injury. The team at Glaser Orthodontics can provide a mouth guard that will promote tooth movement while in treatment. After treatment we can create a custom mouth guard, fit just for you, that can last years if you plan on participating further in any sport!

Please don’t hesitate to contact our Cortlandt Manor NY office if you have any questions or concerns about your braces. If you are interested in a consultation with our team at Glaser Orthodontics please call us or stop by for a visit!
