Invisalign Treatment vs Clear Aligner Treatment

Invisalign cost

Some patients are looking for treatment option other than traditional braces. The discontent with esthetic part of traditional metal braces and the discomfort with braces are often the thought behind asking for Invisalign aligners.

Invisalign system was one of the early aligner systems. Align technology developed a step by step tooth movement software used to fabricate multiple set of aligners. These plastic aligners slowly became a popular treatment option to build a new smile with straighter teeth.

Fast forward, many aligner systems are available for clear aligner therapy. Orthodontic treatment is plan to build a new smile which could be done with aligner trays or braces.

Can clear aligners fix all orthodontic problems?

Advances in aligner treatment allows us to use aligner trays to fix most malocclusion like crossbite, underbite, spacing, deep overbite, or openbite.

Clear aligners also known as invisible braces is a great option for some patients, yet still we have patients that opt for lingual braces, clear braces, or conventional braces after they learn about the commitment and life style changes with aligners.

What is the cost of aligner treatment?

Clear aligners or Invisalign cost primarily depends on the cost of orthodontics treatment. Dental insurance covers part of orthodontic treatment with clear aligners (Invisalign). Insurance plans varies for their coverage. The average dental insurance coverage for aligner treatment is $1500- $2500. Dental practices often offer retainers and teeth whitening with aligner treatment; make sure to ask during your consultation.
