My treatment ended up costing $3,675. I’m sure a lot of things such as insurance and age may change that price some.

I was around 13 years old or so when I started my treatment. From my knowledge I did not have any insurance or anything else to help with the cost of having braces.

As of last week, the range for adult orthodontia in Seattle was 5k-6k.

There are other factors that contribute to this, though. The types of braces (clear, Invisalign, or lingual) makes a difference, and how much correction you need is also a big factor. If you have an overbite that requires orthognathic surgery, and your health insurance covers this surgery, great. If not, add another 3k? to the cost.

About 5,000 including follow-up appointments and one new retainer after I lost one.

Well, the first time around – they cost my mom about 4,000 at 13 years old. Now I have TMJ, my lower teeth are completely entrapped by the “overbite,” that my orthodontist at 13, “fixed.” The next round of braces is going to cost me 10,000 as I have to have braces for 2–3 years to fix my malocclusion that was (in part) caused by the first braces I had at 13. So, 14,000 +, and years of pain and suffering until you find out you have tmj – if the orthodontist only looks at aesthetics and doesn’t get a neuromuscular dentist into the mix.
