Invisalign gained FDA approval in 1998, and since then Invisalign aligners have become a popular choice for their invisibility and removability. It is a type of dental brace that uses clear tray aligners strong enough to put pressure on certain parts of the teeth to slowly move them to where they should be. It shouldn’t be confused with a retainer, however, as Invisalign actually moves the teeth, whereas a retainer holds teeth in place. The plastic trays are made to Invisalign’s own specifications and manufactured in their own facilities. They are replaced every one or two weeks, each tray feeling slightly different than the previous one to facilitate the ongoing moving of the teeth.
The Invisalign journey starts with an initial consultation, during which the dentist will examine the patient’s teeth and gums and ask about their general oral health. They will then take impressions of the patient’s mouth from which the aligner trays will be made. The trays need to be worn 20-22 hours a day to see results, but they can be easily removed for eating, brushing, flossing, or special occasions.
According to the Consumer Guide for Dentistry, the national average cost of an Invisalign treatment is $3,000–$5,000, but a dentist who offers Invisalign will be able to give a more accurate quotation. Prices will vary as the amount that each orthodontist charges are determined by the type of brace they use (Invisalign offers four options: Full, Express 10, Express 5, and Teen) as well as the complexity and expected duration of the treatment. An Express treatment, for example, would be suitable for someone with a mild case, whereas a more complex one would need the Full treatment. A mouth with very crooked teeth or an overbite will need more time to move the teeth into an ideal position, which will have a direct impact on the cost.
Some dental insurance plans may offer partial orthodontic coverage for children under 18 years of age. More providers are also including cover for adult orthodontics in response to the increasing number of adults choosing this form of dental treatment. If an insurance plan covers Invisalign, take note of how much is covered and any lifetime maximum per insured person. If it’s not covered, some insurance plans may offer supplemental orthodontic cover.
The cost of Invisalign per month can range from $50 to $400 depending on your dentist, the overall cost of your treatment, and the length of your payment plan. Your monthly Invisalign cost will be determined by a dentist because the Invisalign business does not set the pricing for the product.
Although Invisalign treatment tends to be a little more costly than traditional orthodontic braces, in many cases there’s not a lot of difference. Some factors affecting the cost of Invisalign are:
• Complexity of treatment – the more complex the problem, the more time that will be needed and the greater the final cost. Complex cases will also typically require more frequent follow-up appointments which can, in turn, affect the cost.
• Patient co-operation – If a patient does not follow the instructions and guidelines given to them, it could increase the treatment time and more aligners may be needed.
• Provider – costs can vary between clinics, so it’s always a good idea to get comparison quotes before committing to a particular provider.
