My total was $5530 with the permanent and essay clear retainer included. I paid $530 for my first payment and then the rest was divided over my treatment time of 18 months. I paid $300/month for like 16 months and then a final of $200.

My total was $6000 for 2 years of treatment, i did $1200 down, and then it was $200 a month.

Pretty much everybody does the monthly payments because its easy, intrest free, and includes everything (meaning the scheduled appointments, extra appointments if anything breaks or falls off), and retainers).
Lots of crimes here

1. The upper molars bite too far ahead of the lower molars

2. Missing teeth #s 9, 14, and, 29

3. Open bite

4. Upper midline left of center

5. Lower midline right of center

6. Upper and lower teeth not straight

Sentence - 24 months, turned to 27 month.

Braces removed since 11/06/17

I live in Southern CA. I'm actually shocked the price was as inexpensive as it is. Its a very small practice. Its my dentist's office that has the orthodontist come in 2x a month. My son also has his braces with them and his teeth are looking fantastics (he gets them off in 6mo).

Nice! My family lives in SoCal and that's around the same price they paid. I live in the south and it's way more expensive here =(
