Depending on where you live (state) and your parents financial status, many states do offer dental care to minors. Otherwise, your parents could talk to dentists about working out a sliding scale on the costs. You could also check out if there is a dental school in your area that may be able to to fit you with braces for a fraction of the cost.

My brace?
ANSWER #10 of 22

depending on how bad your teeth are 2,000-5,000 mine costed $5000 and my bros costed 3000 my teeth were REALLY bad though

I think I need therapy, but am poor (in college) and don't have insurance
ANSWER #11 of 22

Mine where around $4000 :(
And I think where a total rip off. I think my teeth lined up better before I had the braces and really wish I had never got them.
They scared me into saying they would probably have to break my jaw later in life to realign my teeth if I didn't get it taken care of now. I wish I would have went with the chance I needed work later instead of getting the braces.

ANSWER #21 of 22

The Australian government do this because there are a lot of people who can't afford it. My Mum was a single parent trying to raise three kids. The last thing she wanted was to have to fork out thousands of dollars to fix my teeth. Tax payers pay for everything nowadays, but a lot of people benefit from it in the long run.


ANSWER #22 of 22

I'm just grouchy being the tax payer that has to pay for it. I don't like seeing several hundred dollars getting yanked out of my check every payday or the several grand in property taxes I pay to a POS school system.
I know the systems are there to help people and many people use them correctly, I'm just a little bitter about the whole is all :P.
