How much does it cost to get braces for a child in Singapore?
My son has overcrowded teeth and I am considering braces treatment for him. I heard that it’s expensive. Could you please advise me on what’s the price range that I am looking at?
The price ranges from $3,500 to $4,800 at National Dental Centre Singapore for routine braces treatment for patients in permanent dentition This does not include the extractions of teeth. The price range varies at different clinics in Singapore.
It does sound like your son will benefit from braces treatment for his overcrowded teeth. However, your dentist will need to first assess if he is ready for braces treatment.
It’ll be advisable for you to bring your son for a consultation with an orthodontist and they’ll be able to advise you better on the treatment plan as well as the estimated cost.
