Only your dentist can tell you which treatments are right for you. However, when multiple options are available, most of our patients like to consider cost before making a decision. For example, what does Invisalign® cost in comparison to traditional braces? Here’s what you should know:
How much does Invisalign® cost?
Invisalign® tends to cost more than traditional braces, but the difference is not always significant. On average, Invisalign® costs users about $5,000 for treatment, which is generally the maximum cost for traditional braces as well. Despite the small difference in price, many patients prefer Invisalign® for several important reasons:
- Ease of use. Invisalign® trays are removable, meaning they won’t affect your hygiene or eating habits in any way. You can keep eating your favorite foods, enjoy all your favorite activities, and maintain your normal brushing and flossing habits just as you did before.
- The clear plastic used for Invisalign® aligners is much more comfortable than bulky, metal braces. The softer material and low profile will help you forget that you’re wearing anything at all.
- Traditional braces often make their users feel self-conscious about their smile. In contrast, Invisalign® uses a clear plastic that is virtually invisible once you are wearing it.
What are the factors affecting Invisalign® costs
Every case is different, which is why it’s important to speak to your dentist in order to estimate costs. The length of treatment, type of dental tissue being treated, and specific treatment plan are all factors that need to be considered. Fortunately, Invisalign® has provided a cost calculator that will help you examine every conceivable factor ahead of time.
