Invisalign is becoming an increasingly popular method of orthodontic treatment, and many prospective patients are unaware of the price and commitment that factors into a decision to be treated with Invisalign. Dr. Ashley Reynolds specializes in treating patients with Invisalign in South Lyon, MI. Dr. Reynolds and the team at Crescent Orthodontics know that cost is more than just money paid. Orthodontic treatment is also an investment in time, effort, and commitment.
The Cost of Invisalign versus the Cost of Traditional Braces
Braces and Invisalign can be very similar in cost, but Invisalign can be a more economical alternative for some patients. Invisalign costs range from $3,500 to as much as $8,000. Most patients’ treatment with Invisalign costs around $5,000, depending on each patient’s needs and treatment goals. One of our friends at Crescent Orthodontics says that traditional braces, on the other hand, can cost a patient anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000, depending on the amount of work needed.
Insurance and Invisalign
Your dental or health insurance may cover part of the cost of your orthodontic treatment.
Some insurance plans may cover up to $3,500 of an Invisalign treatment. For more information about the costs of treatment and insurance coverage, speak with the team at Crescent Orthodontics and your insurer.
Invisalign.com has a valuable tool for prospective orthodontic patients; their Invisalign Cost Calculator. It computes the approximate monthly cost of your treatment based on information such as your insurance coverage contingencies and any flexible spending account savings.
A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a handy, tax-free way to save toward treatment costs. Dr. Ashley Reynolds and the team at Crescent Orthodontics can discuss with you the possibility of spreading your payments out over the course of treatment. They’ll be happy to work with you to make your health care affordable. Cost of treatment should not be a barrier for anyone looking to improve their smiles and their oral health care.
