The cost of Invisalign varies depending on several factors. In general, Invisalign in the US costs between $3,500 and $8,000. The average is about $5,000. These prices are sometimes comparable to traditional metal braces, but can be slightly higher depending on the specific case.
The factors influencing the cost of Invisalign include:
- Dentist’s experience and training. Prices differ by dental office and by the dentist’s qualifications. An orthodontist or cosmetic dentist may charge differently than a general dentist; a specialist has additional training and expertise that will be used in your Invisalign treatment.
- Length of treatment. Depending on the complexity of your unique case, the number of aligners and dental visits may be greater than another patient’s case. A greater number of aligners and more dental visits will cause treatment costs to increase.
- Insurance coverage. Consult your provider to find out if you have a policy covering orthodontic work. Sometimes this type of policy will offer partial or full coverage for Invisalign.
- Geographic location. Cost is affected by the region in which you live.
During an initial consultation, your dentist can explain what your unique treatment will cost, and discuss whether any financing options are available. If you live in Columbus, Ohio and are interested in Invisalign, contact the experienced dentist Raymond Sheridan to schedule a consultation.
