Orthodontic treatment is an investment in your or your loved ones’ future. There is no set fee for orthodontic visits in New Zealand. Your appointment fee will vary depending on the type of treatment required and the specialist you see.

Many orthodontists will provide all-inclusive treatment quotes so you can work out your budget ahead of time. They also offer payment plans so you can spread the cost of your treatment over time.

What treatment is right for me?

Your orthodontist can help you to understand which of the available treatment options will be best for you.

Between fixed and removable plates, metal braces, ceramic braces, lingual (invisible) braces and clear aligners, there are treatments to suit every need and lifestyle. It is best to make an appointment with your orthodontist prior to deciding on the treatment option you would like, because every case is different and may require a particular orthodontic treatment option.

Saving money in the long term

Any medical procedure has some risk. Orthodontic treatment is the same. It involves moving teeth through bone and surrounding structures, and complications can arise at any point during your treatment. It takes expert knowledge to spot the signs, understand how your treatment should be progressing, and ensure you are on track.

Some people are swayed by the attractive promises of "quick braces"and fast orthodontic fixes by their general dentist. However, choosing cheaper options often costs more in the long term because you have to extend or repeat expensive treatments. No one wants treatment twice, unfortunately this is a common occurrence. 

The do-it-yourself treatment options can be dangerous, and can cost thousands of dollars more than treatment with a specialist orthodontist.
