A Clear Comparison of Invisalign® Braces and their Cost

dca-blog_how-much-do-braces-cost

When you or your child needs braces, you also need to make some decisions about the type of treatment. For most people, convenience and cost are the primary factors, so discover how different affordable orthodontics will meet both of these needs.

Insight on What Different Braces Cost

How much do braces cost? It sounds like a simple question, but there can be more to it than you might first imagine. If you think that all braces are the same, think again. We typically think of braces as traditional metal, but today there are also Invisalign® invisible braces. Both are meant to improve your smile, but there are differences in the braces cost and care. Metal braces are brackets bonded to the teeth, while Invisalign is an invisible alignment tray that is removed for eating and brushing. Initially, Invisalign may seem like a more expensive option, but when considering how much braces cost both personally and financially, you could be surprised at which saves you the most when you factor in the following benefits:

  • Shorter Treatment Time: Metal braces are attached to the teeth for constant wear and typically stay on for around 24 months. While Invisalign is removable, it still must be worn for the majority of the day. However, the length of treatment is usually only six to 18 months. And, Invisalign adjustments can be scheduled less frequently, saving time at the orthodontist’s office.
  • Comfort: Today’s metal braces are much smaller, but they can still irritate your mouth and complicate certain activities. Invisalign is a smooth, plastic alignment system that shifts your teeth without causing the chafing of metal.
  • Invisible: If you find it embarrassing to have metal brackets on your teeth when talking and eating, Invisalign may be for you. It is invisible and can be removed in social situations when dining with others. This invisible quality can greatly reduce your self-consciousness about wearing braces.

Determining Which Braces are Clearly Best

Only your orthodontist can tell you how much braces cost. People often assume that Invisalign is more expensive, but that is not always the case. Your total braces cost will be based on your needs and treatment choices. While metal braces are acceptable for all cases, Invisalign is not for everyone and isn’t recommended for complex dental problems. It may surprise you to learn that your city and state can have an impact on what braces cost, with higher prices in urban areas and some states due to higher overhead expenses. Ultimately, the choice is yours and you may feel that the benefits of Invisalign are clearly worth the extra expense.

Affordable Orthodontics Payment Options

No matter which type of braces you choose, be prepared that dental insurance generally only covers some of the cost, or restricts coverage to medical necessity or children. Luckily, you can have access to affordable orthodontics care through two helpful avenues. One option is DentRite®, which is a dental savings plan that instantly gives you major savings on many dental treatments. It offers both individual and family membership plans, you have unlimited usage, and no one is turned down. CareCredit, a healthcare credit card, is another choice that lets you finance many healthcare procedures. It offers convenient monthly payments, special financing options, and acceptance at more than 175,000 healthcare providers in the U.S. Either of these options can help clear the path for you to get the best braces treatment.
