“What do braces cost?” This is typically the biggest question patients have about orthodontic treatment. The average cost of braces is around $5,000. However, the exact cost depends on the severity of your treatment and your insurance coverage. Keep in mind that you may have insurance that will cover expenses or provide a large discount.

At Durham Orthodontics, we believe no family should have to forego treatment due to their inability to pay. We offer multiple payment options to fit your family’s budget. Contact us for details about our flexible, interest-free payment plans. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover for your convenience. To give you peace of mind each month, we also provide auto-debit transactions from your checking, savings, or credit card accounts using Orthobanc. This allows you to set up your auto-payments each month without having to manually pay your bill.


We provide discounts for those who decide to pay for orthodontic services in full before starting treatment. We also provide discounts to honor our military members, teachers and their families.


We accept most insurance plans and will bill insurance companies for you to maximize your benefits. Before starting treatment, we will review your insurance coverage and provide you with an exact cost, including monthly payment amounts or pay-in-full totals.

When you begin treatment, we will file all of your claims on your behalf. If you have any questions about your treatment coverage, don’t hesitate to ask. If your insurance changes in the middle of treatment and you are on a monthly payment plan, keep in mind that you are responsible for any charges to your treatment cost.
