How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Invisalign is a brand of invisible braces that have many patients excited. This state-of-the-art way of realigning teeth is a welcome change from traditional orthodontics. While many patients want to improve their smile, they shy away from doing so because of the negative associations with metal brackets and wires on their teeth with standard braces. “Metal mouth” and “brace face” come to mind for many patients, and they are commonly turned off to the idea of realigning their smile. However, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to readjust one’s smile, and is virtually unnoticeable by others during a patient’s treatment. No more hiding behind metal while rejuvenating your smile!
Invisalign has many benefits, other than being a clear alternative to traditional braces. Treatment is often similar in cost to standard metal orthodontics, but is far more bearable. Many patients ask how much Invisalign invisible braces cost, and unfortunately, there is not a definitive answer. This is due to many factors that are considered in the treatment plan. The cost can vary depending on how severe your case is, whether you need bite realignment, and if you are compliant and follow through with wearing the aligner trays as required. However, many patients are surprised to find that Invisalign invisible braces are extremely affordable, especially when their insurance provider helps cover a portion of the treatment costs.
For patients who have dental insurance that does not compensate for orthodontic treatment, there are other alternatives for paying. Dr. Foncea of Knoxville’s Sequoyah Dental Arts will be able to talk to you about possible financing options and payment plans to help make Invisalign treatment an option for you and/or your family members. Additionally, patients who have Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA’s) or Health Savings Accounts (HSA’s) may also be able to use these funds to help with the cost of Invisalign treatment.
