How can you get braces for your teeth?

Ask your dentist for a referral to an orthodontist. Some orthodontists will consult patients without a referral so you could try it that way. There is usually a small consulation fee and your orthodontist will explain the best treatment option, and the price. Then it is up to you whether you want to proceed or not. Some insurance companies cover a part of the cost, and the amount you pay is divided over the amount of time you wear your braces (usually 20-24 months).
