Does Invisalign® Cost More Than Braces?

We often speak with families interested in a clear and barely noticeable solution to misalignment, but concerned about the cost. After all, this process must be more expensive, right? Well, you may be surprised to find out that clear and comfortable Invisalign® aligners from your Fort Worth, TX orthodontist could cost as much as regular metal braces, while offering a more attractive solution to poor alignment.

Clear Aligners

How does this system correct misalignment? Instead of using metal brackets and wires to correct misalignment, we take detailed impressions, images, and measurements of the smile to create a series of aligners made from a clear and comfortable material. The aligners will be barely noticeable when worn, which makes this a popular option for teens and adults.

The Treatment Process

Treatment means you wear a set for about 20 to 22 hours every day. After about two weeks, you will then upgrade to the next set in the series. Over the course of a year to 18 months, your teeth will be repositioned to a more optimal place, as better alignment not only improves your smile’s beauty, but also reduces the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ disorder, and bruxism (teeth grinding). While you need to wear them as your orthodontist recommends, you can still remove them before you eat or prior to brushing and flossing. You can also remove them for special occasions, such as dates, graduation, or job interviews.
