Cost of Invisalign
Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces and can be an effective way to straighten your teeth. At MG Dentistry & Rejuvenation Center, the average cost of treatment for Invisalign is between $4,000 and $5,500, though the exact price will vary depending on your situation.
What Are Invisalign Aligners?
Invisalign are custom-made aligner trays to fit your teeth. They are an alternative to traditional braces and can be worn for cosmetic and functional reasons. Invisalign aligners are almost undetectable and do not require metal brackets, making them a popular choice for adults who want straight teeth without drawing attention to their smiles.
Factors Affecting the Cost of Invisalign Treatment
One of the main factors that impact the cost of Invisalign is the severity of the patient’s misalignment. More complex cases typically require more aligners and take longer to treat, increasing the overall cost. Additionally, the fee charged by the orthodontist can also vary depending on their experience and location. Lastly, whether or not the patient requires additional treatments, such as teeth whitening or dental bonding, can also affect the total cost.
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign Treatment?
Many dental insurance plans will cover Invisalign treatment just as they would cover traditional metal braces, while others will provide partial coverage. In some cases, you may be able to get insurance coverage for Invisalign by adding an orthodontic rider to your policy. If you’re considering getting Invisalign, check with your dental insurance provider to see what orthodontic coverage they offer.
Other Payment Options
Monthly Payment Plans
A monthly payment plan can help you spread the cost of Invisalign over time, making it more manageable. Talk to your orthodontist to know more about their monthly payment options.
FSA or HSA
Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) are tax-advantaged accounts that can cover various medical expenses, including orthodontic treatment. If you are considering Invisalign, check with your FSA or HSA administrator to see if your orthodontic care treatment is covered.
Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign
Invisalign works by gradually moving teeth into their proper position using a series of custom-made aligners. Each aligner is made from a smooth, comfortable plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn. The Invisalign aligners are replaced every two weeks as teeth continue to move into their desired position.
Invisalign aligner treatment costs range from $4,000 to $5,500, depending on the severity of your dental misalignment.
Treatment time varies depending on the complexity or severity of your case, but most patients will complete treatment within 12 months. After treatment is completed, patients will need to wear a retainer to maintain their new smile.
Invisalign aligners treat common orthodontic issues such as crowded teeth, crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, bite issues, and gaps between teeth.
Lingual braces are similar to Invisalign plastic aligners in that they use a series of clear plastic trays to guide teeth into place gently. However, lingual braces are bonded directly to the upper jaw’s inside surface preventing them from being removed as needed like Invisalign.
