What is the difference between an orthodontist or a dentist with intensive training and certifications for Invisalign and Orthodontics, and non-orthodontic provider of Invisalign?


Is Invisalign Worth it ?

When looking at the different providers of Invisalign treatment there are going to be some very specific differences. First off, orthodontists and certified Invisalign providers are going to have much better understanding of the alignment process and how each stage of aligners is going to affect an individual’s teeth and jaw.

For this reason certified Invisalign providers are going to be better able to answer specific questions about the Invisalign process. Additionally, unlike non-certified Invisalign providers, they are going to be able to address types of alignment issues that may arise with Invisalign. Finally, with extensive education and specialist training certified Invisalign providers will be more likely to understand specific individual orthodontic needs and be able to create a custom treatment plan for the patient.

How much does Invisalign Typically Cost?

There are a number of different Invisalign treatment plans and each one is going to cost a different amount. For example, those who need Invisalign for longer periods of time are going to pay more. On average invisalign costs between 3, 000 and 5,000 dollars with an average around 5,000 dollars. In many instances insurance plans will cover a portion of this cost, with an average payout of 500 dollars.

Most Invisalign providers will work with their patients on cost, offering a variety of payment plans including some that may not involve a down payment or any interest.

While the competitive prices for Invisalign are good for the consumer, there are a large number of dentists who offer Invisalign treatments at cheaper rates due to their lack of experience. However, before considering  a dentist that is not a certified Invisalign provider, be aware that improperly administered Invisalign treatments can negatively affect one’s health.

Why do invisalign prices differ from dentist to dentist?

Since Invisalign treatment plans are designed based upon individual needs the price is going to be determined based upon how complicated the treatment process is going to be. For example, an individual who requires longer and more advanced treatment is going to end up paying more than a simpler treatment plan.

Typically the cost of Invisalign will vary due to each patient’s specific treatment needs. The cost of Invisalign treatments correlates with the difficulty of each treatment and the time it takes to correct the problem including the experience of the dentist providing the treatment. Certified Invisalign providers who have extensive experience may charge more for their services than other dentists who are not certified.

Is it safe to purchase Invisalign through coupon websites?

In general it is much safer to receive Invisalign treatment through a trusted provider than purchasing treatment from a coupon website. It is not wise to purchase Invisalign coupons before consultation because you might end up with an inexperienced dentist providing Invisalign services. The choice to get Invisalign isn’t a simple decision that should be made without thoroughly thinking about individual needs, oral health, and if the treatment is within your budget. These are things you should talk about with a certified Invisalign provider before proceeding with Invisalign treatment.

Are payment plans or orthodontic financing options available for Invisalign?

In most instances an Invisalign provider will work with patients to create payment plans that will make treatment more affordable. Flexible payment plans can include paying a certain amount on a monthly basis until the entire amount is paid in full. Additionally, in some instances discounts are available when treatment is paid in full. Finally, most Invisalign providers will accept major credit cards or will be able to provide patient with information on where they can turn to for additional funding.

Is Invisalign Safe?

When administered by a fully qualified certified Invisalign provider who has previous experience with invisalign, Invisalign is very safe. Invisalign is able to straighten teeth without having to use any of those irritating wires or other orthodontic treatments that can at times be painful.

Invisalign has been proven to effectively move teeth into place and provide patients with a safe alternative to traditional braces.

Will Invisalign treatment hurt?

Each new Invisalign tray will be tighter than the previous trays, as a result there may be a mild discomfort may be felt when switching to a new set of Invisalign aligners.

How soon will I see the benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Results will begin to appear within a few weeks of starting treatment, but the clear aligners allow individuals to actually see their teeth moving into place. Additionally, being able to remove the trays can provide patients with extra encouragement as they can begin to see what their teeth will look like when treatment is complete.
