When it comes to invisalign there is a lot of false information out there. At Firouz Orthodontics we are committed to providing professional orthodontic services at affordable pricing. Below are some invisalign facts and other important information you might want to consider when leaning toward Invisalign.
Important Invisalign Facts
Invisalign Price / Invisalign Cost
Contrary to common belief, Invisalign is quite affordable. The price has come down significantly and it is now covered by all insurances. The invisalign price range can be as low as $2000 for a minor correction with Invisalign express, to $6000 for a complete case which includes up to five years of aligners!
Invisalign Express Treatment
Invisalign Express refers to any treatment which requires anywhere from 5 to 10 sets of upper and lower aligners, versus unlimited aligners for a full case. The treatment is generally short, which is about 6 months and the cost is about half of a full Invisalign case. The same technology is used to treat patients with Invisalign Express and it is generally the treatment of choice for mild spacing and mild crowding.
Invisalign Retainers or Clear Retainers
They are the latest generation of retainers which are both cosmetic and clear. The cost of these retainers is the same as the traditional wire and acrylic retainers. They also offer an additional advantage by doubling as a thin and comfortable night guard for those patients who clench and grind their teeth when they sleep.
Ceramic Braces and Clear Braces | Clear Braces Cost
Ceramic or clear braces are often used when difficult bite corrections are required beyond the scope of Invisalign. Clear braces or ceramic braces are bonded on the teeth and are as effective as metal braces with a much more cosmetic appearance. They generally cost slightly more than metal braces and are equally effective and very cosmetic. The newest clear braces are made of a sapphire crystal and are glass like and not very noticeable. There are Teflon coated white wires which complement clear braces.
