Orthodontic fees have not increased as fast as many other consumer products. In 1952, it cost the ordinary US worker about 432 hours of labor to purchase orthodontic treatment for a child. In 1997, that parent will only work 279 hours to purchase orthodontic treatment. Compare that to a single family home which cost 6,528 hours of work in 1952 and today costs 10,480 hours. Fees for an initial consultation are minimal. The fee for an individual’s orthodontic treatment will depend on many factors, including how severe the problem is, how complex the treatment is, and how long the treatment lasts. Financing is usually available. Many insurance plans now assist in paying for orthodontics, but seldom pay the entire fee. Well timed orthodontic treatment to correct a problem is often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat the more serious problems that can develop years later.
