The total cost of your treatment will depend on a few factors, including the number of aligners you need, whether you require any special attachments, and the extent of the orthodontic problems we’re trying to correct. In many cases, the price of Invisalign is comparable to that of traditional metal braces.
When you come into our office for a consultation, we can talk about your payment options. Your insurance may be willing to help cover at least part of the price of your clear braces. We can also help you apply for financing so you can break the cost of Invisalign into manageable monthly payments.
Living with Invisalign is easy! Here are some pointers to keep in mind:
Despite your best efforts to take care of your aligners, an incident might damage one of them. Or, you may end up losing track of one of them. Please don’t try to wear a damaged aligner; it could irritate your mouth. Instead, call our office and tell us what happened. We’ll let you know what steps you need to take. We might recommend that you temporarily wear your previous aligner or switch to your next aligner a bit sooner than planned.
Invisalign is an appropriate treatment for most orthodontic problems. If your misalignment is severe, however, traditional braces might be a better option for you.
Both adults and teenagers are often candidates for Invisalign. Invisalign for teens even has a small blue compliance dot on the aligners; this helps parents make sure that their adolescents are wearing their clear braces as much as they should. Young children, however, are not good candidates for Invisalign because their jaws are still developing, and they may lack the discipline needed to care for and wear their aligners like they should.
