How Much Does Orthodontic Treatment Cost in Bucks County and Philadelphia?

Orthodontic treatment and orthognathic surgery encompass a variety of procedures and orthodontic appliances; therefore, the cost varies across our patients. Factors that affect the cost are the:

  • Surgical interventions that are required, such as extractions and modifications to the jaw
  • Orthodontic appliances, such as braces and retainers
  • Number of follow-up visits

Your consultation with Dr. Kadan is the first step. He will develop a comprehensive treatment plan that allows us to determine the overall cost. We will also advise you about any unforeseen circumstances that could increase the cost, such as emergency visits to repair your braces, as well as replacing lost or damaged retainers.

Payment can be made by:

  • Cash, personal check and credit card
  • Financing through CareCredit®
  • In-house financing options

We are an in-network provider for many of today’s top dental insurance companies. Using an orthodontist that is in your dental care network benefits you by:

  • Providing lower out-of-pocket expenses
  • Saving you time and money by completing and filing all necessary claim forms at no extra charge to you
  • Accepting the payment we negotiate with the insurance company as payment in full
  • Never sending you a bill for the charges that are above the negotiated rate, known as balance billing
  • Expecting you to only pay your applicable co-payment, deductible and co-insurance according to the terms of your policy
  • Letting you pay only for your portion rather than expecting you to pay the full cost and get reimbursed by the insurance company

What to Expect During Your Consultation

The consultation that you have with Dr. Kadan includes a complete examination, X-rays and imaging with the iTero® Element™ system that creates a three-dimensional model of your teeth and jaw. Based on his findings, Dr. Kadan decides on the orthodontic treatments that will improve jaw and teeth alignment. Your treatment plan may include orthognathic surgery, braces, and other orthodontic appliances.
