Invisalign - Prices and Payment Options
By Stephen Rogers on January 15, 2014
In recent years, Invisalign® has swiftly risen to become a preferred method of orthodontic treatment for both teens and adults. The treatment’s benefits cannot be overlooked - by using a series of custom molded plastic dental trays, patients are able to correct a number of orthodontic issues and achieve a straighter smile within a year. Because the dental trays are made of completely clear plastic, nobody but you and your dentist has to know that you are undergoing treatment. What’s more, because the trays are removable and easy to clean thoroughly between meals, your teeth are better positioned to be healthy and free of stains or cavities when your treatment is complete. It’s no wonder that more and more patients are choosing Invisalign®.
But if you are thinking about clear braces, you are probably also thinking about the cost of treatment and whether it is out of your price range. At our Greater Long Island Dental office, our cosmetic dentist team works to make Invisalign® costs manageable and put perfect smiles within every patient’s reach.
How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?
Because of their relative newness compared to metal braces, a common assumption is that Invisalign® braces are much more costly than their traditional counterpart. In truth, over time and as technology has increased, Invisalign® braces have become practically comparable to traditional braces.
Beyond just money, Invisalign® braces are able to save time as well by requiring far fewer visits to the dentist’s office. This in particular can be a game changer for busy adults who do not have the luxury of taking days off of work every month for appointments to tighten and adjust traditional metal braces.
Is Invisalign® Covered by My Dental Insurance?
Do you or your family have dental insurance as part of your health benefits package? Is your answer is yes, then it is important to find out whether your insurance will cover Invisalign® braces before you start planning your payment strategy. These days, orthodontic provisions in dental insurance provide at least some coverage for Invisalign® clear braces. If you are covered, that fact can immediately relieve a lot of concern about financing the treatment.
Still, even with dental insurance, you may find that you will have to pay a significant portion out of pocket. But even if it turns out that you are not covered at all, you still have many options that can make Invisalign® available to you.
