Whether you’re interested in Invisalign for yourself or for your child, you may be wondering how much your treatment will cost at your Orthodontics. Of course, the best way to find out is to schedule a consultation with your Orthodontist. But in the blog below, we’ll go over the costs, things that contribute to the overall treatment price, and some other helpful information about Invisalign treatment.
How Much Does Invisalign Treatment Usually Cost?
Invisalign treatment usually costs somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000, though most patients will pay somewhere between $4000 and $6000 for comprehensive care. However, it’s hard to give a true “average cost” for Invisalign.
That’s because every patient is different. Your Orthodontist will develop an Invisalign treatment plan that’s customized just for you. There’s no such thing as “one size fits all” orthodontics, so there’s a lot of variation in how much your treatment may cost.
What Factors Affect The Cost Of Invisalign?
Wondering how the cost of your Invisalign treatment plan will be determined? Here’s a look at some of the top factors that may change your estimated treatment cost:
- Treatment complexity – Modern Invisalign plans are very flexible and can be used to treat overbites, underbites, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gaps in your smile, and more. In general, you’ll pay a higher price if you have more complex dental needs, and vice-versa.
- Total treatment time – This goes hand-in-hand with the complexity of your treatment. More complicated orthodontic issues take more time to treat, which means more sets of Invisalign aligners and more visits.
- Delays and setbacks – If you don’t wear your aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours per day, this could lead to treatment delays. These kinds of delays and setbacks may increase the overall cost of your Invisalign treatment.
Will Dental Insurance Cover The Cost Of Orthodontic Treatment?
This depends on the type of insurance you have. Most types of dental insurance do not cover the cost of orthodontics for adults. However, it’s much more common for insurers to cover orthodontics for kids and teenagers.
If your child’s dental insurance does cover orthodontics, it will usually pay for a percentage of their treatment, and will have a “lifetime maximum.” After this maximum is exceeded, your insurance policy will no longer contribute to treatment.
If you have questions about insurance coverage for you or your child, we recommend consulting with your insurer or looking at your policy documents directly. The team at your orthodontists can also help you learn more about your benefits and if they will cover orthodontic treatments like Invisalign.
