Cost is often a concern for people seeking Invisalign orthodontic treatment. Today, dentists from our 5 Downtown Toronto locations (Bay Adelaide Dental, Brookfield Place Dental, College Park Dental, King-York Dental and Richmond-Adelaide Dental) break down the financial factors you may want to consider in the decision making process.
What is Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign orthodontic treatment consists of a series of clear aligners that you would typically change every 2 weeks. Each set of removable, custom-made clear aligners will gradually adjust your teeth.
One key feature of Invisalign is that you can remove your clear aligners to eat, drink and brush your teeth. The clear aligners can help resolve a variety of orthodontic issues such as misalignment, bite issues and crowding. Adults and teenagers also like this popular treatment option for its discreet appearance and adaptability to their lifestyles.
Factors That Will Affect The Cost of Your Invisalign Treatment
Here are the financial factors that contribute to the total amount you might pay for Invisalign:
- The severity of your oral health needs and how much work needs to be completed
- Any coverage your insurance plan can provide
- Your location and average prices for this type of orthodontic treatment in your area
- The dentist’s time for his or her work
The average cost of Invisalign treatment is similar to the average cost for braces. The only way to determine the cost of your customized treatment plan is to consult with your dentist about your individual case.
Along with your oral health and the extent of the work required, your specific jaw shape and misalignment issues will also dictate your treatment plan, how many aligners you’ll need and the duration of the process, and therefore the cost of your treatment.
Paying for Your Invisalign Clear Aligners
If cost is a high priority factor in your list of considerations, you may want to speak to your dentist about payment options. After your initial consultation, you’ll have an estimate of total cost and can decide whether you’d like to move ahead.
Similar to regular braces, most dental insurance plans cover Invisalign, but check with your insurance company first to find out the extent of the coverage you’ll have.
