Affordable orthodontics (braces) plan - Got any recommendations?

Hi everyone. I'm looking for an affordable orthodontics plan (insurance).
It's for my son, but I'd like to have all of the family member covered for general dental plan too.

Do you have any recommendation? I found ameriplan dental plus, which is not an insurance, has anyone used this? Is it good? bad?

Thanks.

I think most companies are not paying much for orthodontics anymore. We have wonderful dental insurance, Delta Dental Premier. BUT, it only covers 50% up to $1000 lifetime for orthodontics. We are on our third kid with braces now and that is still the only coverage we get.

Oldest dd had braces at 15 and hers were ~$4800, I can't remember exactly, it was 6 years ago.

My 13yo had braces and two palette expanders, headgear and rubberbands at 7-8. Hers was considered phase one am was about $3200. She will be getting a full set next year. She had severe crossbite, super narrow palette and it had to he expanded before about 9.

Same story with my 7yo dd now. She has a palette expander and braces for phase one. She also has a super narrow palette and severe crossbite. We are now in a different state and hers will be $2250. She will need braces again as a teenager. This is her the day she got them in May.

Aww thanks for sharing. hmm, I'm not sure if I should investigate more or not as we'd prob need over $1000 of coverage with all the family members. Well be calling few insurance companies here soon. The best I could find covers 25%. Ameri plan dental plus covers more, but my husband thinks it's a scam...

Well, each member gets the $1000 lifetime but in the scheme of orthodontics cost it isn't much. But it helps some.

Re: Affordable orthodontics (braces) plan - Got any recommendations?

our insurance is $1,500 coverage per person per life time of orthodontist coverage. My DD 10.5 is in phase one of orthodontist work to fix an underbite and dealing with a large amount of congentially missing adult teeth.
I had to pay $850 out of pocket as a down payment after insurance and will pay another $185 per month for 12-14 months in phase 1.

total estimate $3070-$3440
