Invisalign Cost By Stephen Dowell, DDS on August 09, 2021

Invisalign clear aligners are a popular orthodontic option for patients with crooked, gapped, and crowded teeth. This treatment can offer the same outcome as traditional braces without bulky brackets, uncomfortable wires, and long treatment times. 
Many patients who are interested in clear aligner therapy have questions about Invisalign cost. Here’s the good news: clear aligner therapy usually costs the same or less than traditional braces, and many insurance providers will cover at least a portion of the cost. 
Contact Dr. Stephen Dowell serving Minerva, Carrollton, and Dover, OH dental practice for an initial consultation to learn which treatment is best for you, and how much you can expect to pay. 

Factors That Contribute to Invisalign Cost

Invisalign cost varies from one case to the next. Several factors will influence your treatment expenses, including: 

Treatment Time

The Invisalign treatment time typically ranges between 12 and 18 months. However, patients with severe misalignment may require longer treatment. Not wearing the aligners for at least 20 hours per day could also contribute to a longer treatment time. 
Typically, treatment for traditional metal braces lasts between two and three years. 

Office Visits

Fewer in-office appointments with Invisalign aligners can also result in lower costs. Dentists may recommend that patients visit every six weeks to evaluate their progress. Patients with traditional braces may need to visit every four weeks. 
Depending on the patient’s level of cooperation and dedication, treatment goes as planned. However, adjustments are sometimes necessary and can add to Invisalign cost. 

Insurance Coverage

More and more insurance companies are providing at least some coverage for Invisalign treatment. Our office will be glad to work directly with your insurance provider to help you take advantage of the most coverage possible for this popular and effective alternative to metal orthodontics.


Let’s say your insurance provider is willing to pay for at least some of your treatment, but you are left with an uncovered portion that you are not able to pay for out-of-pocket - at least not right away. In many cases, this isn’t a problem. Practices like ours offer reasonable financing options that can help you make Invisalign a comfortable fit for your budget. Invisalign is so much more than a means of making your smile more attractive - it’s also a great way to make your smile easier to maintain. That’s why we are glad to work with you to make the tremendous benefits of this treatment affordable.

Choice of Doctor

Your dentist’s experience will also influence the final cost of straightening your teeth with Invisalign clear orthodontics. Simply put, the more experience your dentist has, the more you are likely to pay. However, it is important to remember that a more experienced dentist who frequently provides Invisalign is more likely to provide you with the caliber of results you want.
