What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an easy method for straightening your or your child’s teeth! It’s so easy compared to traditional braces, especially. With traditional braces, a patient will have to make an adjustment to their cleaning routine in order to prevent tooth decay. This means cleaning the wires and brackets, which children especially won’t like having to do. With Invisalign, a patient just removes the aligner before brushing and flossing. On top of that, with braces, it’s necessary to make dietary adjustments, but not with Invisalign!
The other big benefit of Invisalign is that it’s practically invisible! In fact, the aligner is almost entirely unnoticeable, so a patient won’t feel so self-conscious about wearing it. The aligner can be removed for social meals, like a child’s school lunches, so the patient can socialize without worry.
There are other benefits of choosing Invisalign, like how comfortable the aligner is and how affordable it can be for many patients!
How much does Invisalign cost?
Traditional braces actually cost more than many people think. They usually cost anywhere from $2000 to $6000, including the labor involved by a dental professional. Although traditional braces are often the least expensive option, it’s not by much, and the alternatives, like Invisalign, are very close in cost and even sometimes less expensive.
When a dentist gives a patient a quote for Invisalign, the dentist factors in the patient’s oral health needs, what kind of work must be done, where the patient lives, and the dentist’s cost for labor. Another factor is insurance. Some providers will cover up to $3000 of the cost of Invisalign. According to the Consumer Guide to Dentistry, the national average cost for Invisalign is $3000 to $5000. When you consider all the benefits of Invisalign, like how it’s dentist-approved, it’s easy to make the decision to get it.
