Invisalign is a clear alternative to braces which allow a patient to eat & speak normally over the course of teeth straightening treatment. With a treatment that doesn’t come along with the pain or aesthetic issues associated with traditional metal braces, it’s no wonder these clear aligners are extremely popular. When it comes down to deciding on the best treatment, most people wonder how much Invisalign costs. Compared to regular braces, the answer might surprise you.
What factors into the cost of Invisalign?
As you might imagine, the process of predicting how to move permanent teeth with a series of aligners is a complex one and every case is different. There are some conditions Invisalign can treat and others it can’t, so it’s important to have a consultation with your dentist to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, exactly how much your Invisalign treatment might cost & how much of the cost insurance might pick up. Every case is different, and therefore the cost of Invisalign braces depends on various factors, so each individual case is based on:
- Length of treatment
- Orthodontic insurance coverage
- Other factors that your dentist might determine for your specific case
How much does Invisalign treatment cost?
Without help from insurance, Invisalign typically costs between $3,000 and $8,000. Depending on the type, traditional braces can range in cost from $3,000 to $10,000. Since there are so many factors that make up the cost of treatment, it’s best to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists, but for planning ahead of time, many patients find Invisalign’s cost calculator useful.
Many patients use their pre-tax Flexible Spending Account to set aside money for their Invisalign treatment.
Overall, treatment with Invisalign holds many advantages over treatment with braces and each have pros and cons you and your dentist should talk about before treatment. If you’re looking for Invisalign treatment services, we’d be happy to talk to you about your individual case and plan time for a consultation.
