Clear aligner systems like Invisalign are an increasingly popular alternative to metal braces. After all, Invisalign is less noticeable, more comfortable, and requires less maintenance than conventional braces.
When helping our clients decide which treatment option is right for them, one of the most common questions we receive is, “How much does Invisalign cost?”. Read more to learn helpful information you need to know before deciding whether it is a worthwhile investment for your smile!
The Average Cost of Invisalign
According to the latest findings by the Consumer Guide to Dentistry, the average cost of Invisalign treatments in the U.S is $6,000. However, every patient and treatment plan is unique, and your doctor will provide you with your cost based on your treatment needs and complexity. Dunegan & Cole makes it easy to estimate your costs by providing a cost calculator.
What Factors Determine the Cost?
So, what exactly could affect the cost of your Invisalign treatment? Here are some factors to consider:
The Complexity of Dental Issues
A variety of pre-existing dental issues can become a factor that influences the final cost of your Invisalign treatment. For example, if your situation requires extractions to allow for more space to correct overcrowded teeth, additional fees are required for the procedure and a longer treatment time. Conversely, minor alignments will require a shorter duration, resulting in a lower price.
Pre-Treatment & Aftercare Expenses
The quotes for a similar Invisalign treatment may vary from specialist to specialist, depending on whether they have included the pre-treatment and aftercare expenses that are commonly required for a complete treatment. Dunegan & Cole
Experience of The Orthodontist
