The cost of your Invisalign treatment from our CCOA member dentists will depend upon the complexity of your orthodontic issue and your smile goals. Here's more on how the pricing for Invisalign treatment works...

Invisalign Clear Aligners

For many people Invisalign offers a convenient, low profile way to correct orthodontic issues without the need for metal brackets and wires. Invisalign uses a series of clear custom-made aligners to guide your teeth into their corrected positions, giving you a straighter smile. Invisalign's thin plastic aligners are almost completely invisible to other people while you're wearing them, and removable for those times when you don't want anyone to know you're straightening your smile. 

How Invisalign Treatment Works

Each individual aligner in your treatment series is custom made to apply a precise amount of pressure to individual teeth in order to gradually move each tooth to exactly where you want it. Treatment simply involves wearing each aligner for about two weeks then switching to the next aligner in your series, until your teeth have made it to their prescribed positions.

How Long Will Invisalign Treatment Take

The duration of your Invisalign treatment will depend upon the nature and severity of your orthodontic issues. Following a comprehensive examination of your smile, your CCOA dentist will provide you with a personalized treatment plan which maps out each step of your Invisalign treatment from start to straight smile finish. Your treatment plan will include anticipated timelines so that you can track your treatment progress as you go along.

How the Cost of Invisalign Treatment is Calculated

The severity of your misalignment or bite issue will determine the length of time your treatment will take and how many aligners you will need to reach your smile goals. The more complex your orthodontic issues are, the longer treatment will take and the more aligners you will need. The number of aligners you need will dictate the cost of your Invisalign treatment. In many cases the cost of Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional metal braces.
