Cost of Lost Retainers
Amount: $500.00
Posted by: Casey in Barnstable, MA.Posted: May 3rd, 2010 04:05PM
My son lost his retainers the very NEXT day- now we have to pay 500.00 for the lower and top retainers. The material isn't that expensive! These cost more than my new TV. or the cost of Airline tickets for two people, or how about an entire 40 hr. a week paycheck! This cost is way too much money. If you can, ask for an extra pair to be made. It really can't be that difficult to make these. We just allow ourselves to be charged an exuberant amount.

Top and Bottom Retainers
Amount: $500.00
Posted by: leasha in San Diego, CA.Posted: December 9th, 2009 08:12PM
Had braces 15 yrs ago, had permanant top and bottom retainer, but my teeth started shifting agin, so I was initially told my insurance would cover ortho. I went in and bascially as they were taking off my old bottom retainer, they told me it would be $500 for both top and bottom new ones. Then as I went back for a reatiner fitting and the Dr. is now telling me that I need a permanant on top. Didn't I just pay $500 to take the permanent off???

$450 for first $300 for backup
Amount: $750.00

I had to get a quote just this week for my flex spending account. My insurance (compbenefits) has a co-payment of $450 for a retainer. My doctor will order a second complimentary retainer for $300. So the total will be $750.

We bought my daughter a retainer insurance would not cover and it came out every month. It did however help some, but now it is time to get the braces and they are telling me 4-6 thousand. How much is too much. We see kids with braces everyday- how are these parents affording this?

I only broke a little glue off of my bottom bonded retainer, it cost me $60.00 just to glue the retainer to one of my teeth, is that ridiculous?

corrective retainers
Amount: $5,000.00
Posted by: a user in Delaware, OH.Posted: May 27th, 2009 01:05PM
Haven't gotten the treatment yet but had braces for 2 years and never wore my original retainer. Now it is 8 years later and my teeth have shifted mildly. I visited an orthodontist today and he told me I'd need a series of 3 corrective retainers to shift my teeth and then perminant ones to keep them there. He told me I'd have 3 to 6 months of total treatment...$5,000 seems SO rediculous for that! My insurance does not cover orthodontics!

The dentist says my 9 year old needs top and bottom retainer, one with key to be turned twice a week. Haven't ordered them yet. Want to know if that's a good price or not.
