What do Clear Aligners Cost?

Cost is often a concern for people seeking Invisalign orthodontic treatment. In this post, our Ottawa dentists break down the financial factors you may want to consider in the decision making process. 

What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system 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.

An advantage 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 Affecting Invisalign Costs

Here are the financial factors that contribute to the total amount you might pay for Invisalign:

  • 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 city
  • 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 help 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 Invisalign

If cost is high on 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.
