Everything You Need to Know About Invisalign - Part 2 - Does Invisalign cost more than braces?

Four million people have chosen Invisalign treatment to transform their smiles. The clear aligners transform smiles with more comfort and less intrusion than traditional braces, but do they cost more? Invisalign costs are one of the primary concerns that our patients and their families have during their free consultation.

A number of factors determine the cost of orthodontic/Invisalign treatment: the complexity of the issues to correct; how long the treatment plan will take, and the specific treatment details required. In many cases, Invisalign takes less time than traditional braces and has an average treatment time of about 12-14 months. Invisalign is very affordable, with a cost similar to that of traditional braces...at least in our practice!
