The cost of Invisalign in Orlando varies widely for several reasons. But the determining factor is how crooked or crowded your teeth are when we start and the length of time it will take to straighten them in your case.
Determining the Cost of Invisalign in Orlando
The average cost of Invisalign treatment in Orlando ranges between $3,000 and $6,800. Let’s take a look at how this breaks down.
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligner trays customized to move your teeth into their optimal position. Orlando dentist Dr. Gary Michaelson instructs his patients to wear one set of aligners for two to three weeks, then switch to the next set in the series. You’ll repeat this process until you have used all your aligners and you’ve achieved your goal of a straighter smile.
So, if your Invisalign treatment takes a year, you’ll need about 20 to 30 sets of Invisalign trays. However, patients who have more extensive tooth misalignment or bite problems to correct may require 50 sets of Invisalign aligners or more over the course of treatment.
Dr. Michaelson is looking at different factors when creating your treatment plan. Some of the problems that he corrects with invisible braces that could impact the time it takes and the cost of Invisalign are:
- Overlapped teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Open bites
- Spacing between teeth
Strategies for Fitting Invisalign Comfortably Into Your Budget
At Alafaya Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we tailor your Invisalign treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results in the shortest time. We also want to help you achieve your smile goals, and we understand that finances might be a concern for those considering treatment with Invisalign.
The good news is that today, many dental insurances cover a portion of the cost of Invisalign as they do any other orthodontic treatment, and we accept all PPO insurances. So insurance benefits can help to reduce your out-of-pocket expense.
If you would like help with financing your Invisalign treatment, we partnered with CareCredit and Lending Club Patient Solutions. Both are third-party financing options that can help make Invisalign a possibility for you through affordable monthly payments.
If they're available to you, you might also consider using benefits like your Health Savings Account (HSA) or your Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Your employer sets up these accounts that allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to spend on healthcare or dental treatments like Invisalign. Planning ahead and using these accounts can help defray the cost of achieving your goal for a straighter smile.
