No more metal braces! The new way to straighten your teeth is invisible. Pretty great isn’t it? Invisalign is a choice that everyone will love, even your teen. You probably have a lot of questions about Invisalign. In just a minute you will have the answer to probably your most urgent question, how much does Invisalign cost. First let’s talk about what Invisalign looks like, how long you will need to wear them, how they work and are they effective plus will Insurance cover the cost.
The teeth straightening process no longer has to mean brackets and metal wires. The new process is very simple. Instead of the wires you will have a grouping of aligners made of a clear material. Each one of these will be worn about two weeks and then replaced with the next on in the series. Each one will very slowly change your teeth for the better. It will take anywhere between 18 and 30 aligners to complete the change you want for your teeth. Your orthodontist or dentist will require regular visits during this process.
For your teeth to be effectively changed to a desired position, the aligners need to be on the teeth. The longer each day and night that you have the aligners in place the quicker you will have your desired results. The only time they really need to be removed is when you are flossing, brushing, drinking or eating.
This sounds really amazing, doesn’t it? The wire braces can now be replaced by invisible braces for straightening those crocked teeth. This has been proven to be an effective alternative by ten out of nine users all over the country.
It is time to talk about the cost factor. With the economy of today cost has become a real consideration for everything. So how much does Invisalign cost? For the most part the Invisalign cost is about the same as the cost of metal braces. If you are under the care of a dentist, the cost will probably range from three-thousand to five-thousand or more. It really depends on the kinds of problems that need fixing and where the dentist is located.
The Invisalign cost can be higher if you are seeing a specialist. Also, it will depend on the kind of treatment you need. If the entire mouth needs to be straightened or if it is just an ‘express’ treatment, meaning just part of the mouth. The specialist will probably charge around six-thousand up to eight-thousand dollars, more or less depending on the work involved. The greater the number of aligners that will be needed, the greater the cost involved.
Invisalign is going to be covered the same as metal braces on most Insurance programs. This will depend on the recommendation from the specialist or the dentist. Some individuals are not a good candidate for using the Invisalign treatments. For those who do qualify for their use, the desired results do take less time than the wire braces.

As you can see, the answer to how much does Invisalign braces cost depends on the varying factors of your treatment. You may want to consult your dentist to see about your best treatment and whether you Insurance plan will cover your expenses.
