If you’ve decided that Invisalign is the way to go for your orthodontic treatment, then Dr. Montgomery and his team are ready to help you have a beautiful and straight smile. There are, however, a few details that you might want to know up front such as the cost of Invisalign in Plano. Read on for answers to this and other questions about Invisalign.
We can’t give you an exact answer here, of course, but generally speaking the average cost of Invisalign is between $3,500 and $6,000. The total cost will depend on the condition of your teeth.
The details of each case influence the total cost of Invisalign.
A more complex case will likely require more time and more aligners, thereby resulting in a higher cost. There are patients with minor orthodontic problems that may need only a few months of treatment. These might cost between $3,000 and $4,000.
On the other hand, a patient with a number of issues may require a few years of treatment. Naturally, a longer treatment time will likely require more supplies and appointments, resulting in a higher cost. You can expect a more complex orthodontic case to run between $5,000 and $6,000.
Yes. Once Dr. Montgomery has prescribed Invisalign and you have your aligners, how well you follow instructions will influence the cost of treatment.
We probably don’t need to state the obvious, but if you break an aligner, then there is a charge for replacement. So, while we’re on the subject—don’t leave your Invisalign aligners anywhere that a dog could get them. Unfortunately, Fido might not understand that your clear braces are not chew toys!
Also, if you fail to wear your aligners for the proper amount of time, this could also extend your treatment time and, therefore, the cost.
Invisalign aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours a day every day. This gives you enough time to remove them for regular meals and daily brushing and flossing. Failing to wear your aligners for a prolonged period of time will not only cost money, but also is likely to delay your new and beautiful smile.
That depends on the details of your dental insurance benefits. Some policies will cover a portion of the cost. Orthodontic treatment can be considered a medically necessary procedure that insurance covers. You can check with your insurance company to find out if Invisalign in Plano is covered, or our front office staff will be glad to help.
