Spirit Dental offers a $1,200 children’s orthodontia benefit on any of our network plans. Here’s a breakdown of how the plan works:
What is the covered age range of a child on the Spirit plan?
The plan considers anyone under the age of 19 to be a child. The child must be 19 or under when treatment is received.
How long is the waiting period after purchasing dental insurance?
Once a plan is purchased, there are no waiting periods. You can schedule an appointment with an in-network orthodontist as soon as you purchase the plan.
We want to help parents give these benefits to their children. Get a free instant quote today or call 844-833-8440 to speak with one of Spirit’s licensed agents.
The best age for braces will depend on your child’s specific situation, but most experts recommend getting braces between the ages of 10 and 14 while the child’s mouth and head are still growing. To determine the best age for you or your child to get braces, it’s best to talk to your dentist or orthodontist.
Not all insurance plans cover braces, but most of our Spirit Dental policies do! When purchasing dental insurance, be sure to check if coverage for orthodontics is included.
Most Spirit Dental insurance policies cover braces for dependent children and teenagers under the age of 19. Be sure to check if coverage for orthodontics is included before purchasing your policy if you know your child may need braces.
The price of braces for children can range greatly, from as little as $3,000 to as much as $10,000 depending on the treatment and correction needed.
It is important if you are considering braces to get insurance coverage that covers orthodontic care, like our Network 1200/2500/5000 plan that offers ortho coverage up to 50%, so you can save big on your child’s braces!
