Why are braces so expensive?

It all comes down to the total length of treatment and after care as well as to the level of expertise needed to accurately – and safely – move teeth to achieve the optimal outcome. Before treatment starts, Dr Kyi spends hours personally planning the movement of each tooth, then fine-tuning throughout treatment as necessary. From the initial consultation and all the planning, to the active treatment time and post-care supervision, can add up to 3 years’ worth of treatment and care.

Our prices for all types of straightening include 2 types of retainers – both fixed and removable night-time ones – as Dr Kyi would not offer to treat you without ensuring 1) You have retainers at the end of your treatment to ensure your straightened teeth remain in their new positions but also 2) You don’t have any surprises on the money front once your active treatment is complete!
