Getting Started With Invisalign
How much does Invisalign cost?
It’s difficult to quote a price on Invisalign because it depends on the patient’s needs and treatment plan. The national average cost of Invisalign is $5,000 per case. The cost may vary between patients, depending on the number of aligners needed to achieve the desired results. Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign is typically less expensive.
Are invisible braces covered by insurance?
Dental insurance plans do not usually cover the cost of Invisalign. Typically, dental insurance coverage only helps with necessary dental procedures. Invisalign is an elective orthodontic treatment.
However, we will help you with any billing and paperwork to maximize your dental insurance benefits. Third-party financing and payment options are also available for patients concerned about the cost of Invisalign treatment.
How long will I need to wear Invisalign aligners?
Generally speaking, Invisalign treatment takes between 6 and 9 months. If you have an orthodontic relapse, treatment may be as quick as 3 to 4 months. A relapse is when patients who wore braces as a kid have crooked teeth again. More significant alignment concerns could take a year to correct.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign gradually shifts the position of your crooked teeth through a series of clear plastic aligners. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks. The aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and guide them into a straighter position. After your treatment is complete, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth straight.
Why is Invisalign better than metal braces?
Because Invisalign is clear, no one will know you’re wearing braces. There are also health benefits to Invisalign. The clear aligners are removable, so you can take them off to brush and floss your teeth. You can also remove them when you’re eating, which means you can enjoy all the foods that you love!
