Yip it costs alot esp. if you not on medical aid.
The bill would be aprox. R500 every month, thats just for him to look in your mouth and say ok everythings fine or adjust your braces and give you an apntmnt for next month. Treatment can be for as long as 2yrs.
So yip about 20k but you should go for a quote to get a proper figure.
Hope you on medical aid.
