Why Choose Cordes Orthodontics for Invisalign® Clear Aligners?

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

With Invisalign, instead of brackets and wires, patients wear a progressive series of lightweight plastic aligners that fit over their teeth. Each one places the right amount of pressure to shift the teeth into their ideal positions, and once a patient has gone through their entire series, they should see a perfectly straight smile in the mirror. Thanks to the clear plastic, patients don’t ever have to worry about friends or coworkers noticing their treatment. Plus, they can easily take the aligners off whenever they want for eating or brushing their teeth.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Invisalign

Many factors influence the overall cost of Invisalign in Enfield, including:

  • The number of aligners needed to straighten your teeth. It varies on a case-by-case basis depending on the extent and type of dental misalignment.
  • Whether you’re straightening one arch or both. Logically speaking, straightening both the upper and lower teeth will cost more than just straightening one or the other.
  • Your treatment compliance. If you lose an aligner or fail to stick to your treatment plan, you may need to pay more than expected.
  • Whether you need additional accessories. Some patients might need elastics or other accessories to ensure successful treatment.

Invisalign vs. Smile Direct Club™: Which Costs More?

If you’re on a budget, you may be tempted to opt for do-it-yourself clear aligner therapy like SmileDirectClub™. It usually costs around $2,000 while Invisalign can run anywhere between $3,000 and $8,000. Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Let’s take a look at a few key differences between the two options:

  • Since DIY aligners are more affordable, they’re often made out of a cheap plastic material that can break easily. Meanwhile, Invisalign uses a patented material designed for comfort and efficient tooth movements.
  • Some patients claim that the DIY aligners are ineffective. In fact, there are even cases where it’s worsened dental alignment! Invisalign has consistently proven to be successful.
  • Most DIY aligner companies just see you as another name on their list of customers. With Invisalign, you can enjoy personalized support and guidance from our skilled dental team throughout every step of your journey.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Invisalign?

Most dental insurance policies offer coverage for orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign. If your plan applies, it can reduce your out-of-pocket expenses by $1,000 or more! Of course, every policy is unique, which is why you should confirm the details with your insurance provider before committing to anything. Our team is more than happy to help with that step if needed!

Options for Making Invisalign Affordable

At Cordes Orthodontics, we understand that not everyone has dental insurance. That’s why we offer additional financing options to help you afford your treatment! You can opt for third-party financing through CareCredit to make your dental bills much easier to manage. It allows you to split up the total cost of your treatment into smaller, budget-friendly monthly installments.

Invisalign® Teen

Do you have a teen who would literally die if you made them get braces, even though they really need them? With Invisalign Teen, everyone can be happy! It uses the same clear aligner system as regular Invisalign, but each tray has a small blue dot towards the back that fades as it is worn. This way, both teens and parents can make sure they’re keeping up with their treatment. Talk to Dr. Cordes and see if your teen is a good candidate for clear aligners.
