The average cost of braces in South Africa

Ever wonder what braces cost in South Africa?  You along with millions of other South Africans have asked, and we are here to answer.

On initial thought of creating a beautiful smile for the rest of your life, the cost of braces should most definitely come second – as the journey of creating a beautiful smile will open many doors and give you confidence that you will never be able to put a price on.

Your first visit to our orthodontic office, we will be able to determine which type of orthodontic records will be necessary.  If you are paying privately, this can range from R1018 for a limited orthodontic examination.  A complete orthodontic examination including 3 x-rays, photos of your face and teeth, and intraoral scan for a digital study model all for diagnostic purposes that aid Dr to work on your braces cost or treatment plan can be a maximum of R4394 for a privately paying patient.  Luckily most medical aids are happy to cover these benefits for you! 

We strive to provide our patients with the highest orthodontic care and are always listening to our patient’s needs and concerns.  After evaluating your orthodontic diagnostic records, Dr will decide which type of braces or appliances will work the best for your individual case, and thus determine your braces cost. 

Your treatment plan and braces cost plan is discussed with you in detail, making sure you understand and are happy with the process, where we will be able to assist with a convenient payment plan, interest-free.

The treatment fees can vary depending on treatment needs and the type of braces chosen. This portion can be paid off in installments and will be outlined in your quotation.

If you have medical aid, we will assist you with obtaining authorization.  We will also be able to finance any remainder not covered by your medical. 


So, in short terms… is braces cost more important than a beautiful smile.  No!  We feel every patient that enters our door has the right to a beautiful smile!!! We at PretoriaSmile will strive to give each patient a perfect smile no matter your financial circumstances. We are here for you!!!!
