How Much Should You Be Spending on Invisalign?

How Much Should You Be Spending on Invisalign?
Posted on 05/27/2015

Invisalign is a great treatment option for straightening teeth, especially for adults and teenagers. The clear aligning trays make it a more subtle option, since they negate the presence of the metal wires and brackets that are usually so visible. This alone is a big reason why many people select Invisalign—the braces are invisible and don’t interfere with a patient’s self-confidence.


However, although many people feel Invisalign is a more attractive option, they still worry about the cost. Many individuals wonder, how much does Invisalign cost, and how does the cost of Invisalign compare to traditional wire braces?

Well, patients who use Invisalign in Florida find the costs are comparable to traditional braces.

Based on the national average, Invisalign orthodontic treatments typically range from $3,000 to $6,000 if provided by an orthodontist. Invisalign treatment costs in Florida are about the same.

However, only your orthodontist can give you an accurate cost estimate for you. Every mouth is different, so every treatment plan and duration will vary. The total cost of your Invisalign will depend on the difficulty of the case and treatment time.

Many people don’t have to bear the financial burden of Invisalign orthodontics alone, or all at one time. Many patients have dental coverage with an orthodontic addendum that covers a portion of the straightening of teeth. A quick call to your insurance company can verify this, as well as the percentage you can expect them to pay.

Many orthodontic offices also offer payment plans, so you can pay as you go instead of doling out a large sum of money before the treatments begin. In addition, if you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), which is money paid into a pre-tax contribution account just for medical and dental use, you can apply any funds you have saved there to your Invisalign treatment.

The bottom line is that you can expect to spend between $3,000 and $6,000, but you should make an appointment with your orthodontist to be sure.
