When it comes to Invisalign orthodontic treatment, many people are concerned about the cost. Our Orléans dentists break down the financial factors you may want to consider in your decision-making process in this post.

What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system consists of a series of clear aligners that you would typically change every 2 weeks. Each set of removable, custom-made clear aligners will gradually adjust your teeth.

The ability to remove your clear aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth is one of the benefits of Invisalign. Clear aligners can help with a variety of orthodontic issues, including misalignment, bite problems, and crowding. This popular treatment option is also popular among adults and teenagers due to its discreet appearance and adaptability to their lifestyles.

Who is an ideal candidate for clear aligners?

Many more adults have sought orthodontic treatment in recent years to achieve straighter teeth and a healthier smile. One reason for the rise could be the appearance and effectiveness of clear aligners.

In terms of who is a good candidate for clear aligners, almost any adult who has a problem with their teeth alignment should talk to their dentist about this treatment option. The dentist can then examine you to see if clear aligners would be beneficial in resolving your problem.

A few specific problems clear aligners can help include overbite, crossbite, open bite, spaces and gaps between the teeth and crowding.

Factors Affecting Invisalign Costs

Here are the financial factors that contribute to the total amount you might pay for Invisalign:

  • Your oral health needs and how much work needs to be completed
  • Any coverage your insurance plan can provide
  • Your location and average prices for this type of orthodontic treatment in your city
  • The dentist’s time for his or her work

The average cost of Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of braces. The only way to find out how much your customized treatment plan will cost is to speak with your dentist about your specific case.

Your specific jaw shape and misalignment issues, as well as your oral health and the extent of the work required, will help dictate your treatment plan, how many aligners you'll need, the duration of the process, and thus the cost of your treatment.

Paying for Invisalign

If cost is high on your list of considerations, you may want to speak to your dentist about payment options. After your initial consultation, you’ll have an estimate of the total cost and can decide whether you’d like to move ahead.

Similar to regular braces, most dental insurance plans cover Invisalign but check with your insurance company first to find out the extent of the coverage you’ll have.

If you're thinking of treating your dental health issues with an orthodontic option such as Invisalign, financial considerations will likely help you make your decision. Fortunately, depending on your oral health requirements, Invisalign may make sense for you.
