As with any new technology, many people worry that clear braces, or “Invisalign”, cost more than their traditional metal predecessors – but they don’t! Braces usually cost around $3,000 to $8,000, and invisible braces fall into this category too. In many ways, Invisalign treatment is far more affordable and cost-effective than regular braces. Read on to find out why:
SpeedClear braces often achieve results quicker than regular brace, cutting down on dentist visits and other associated costs. Regular braces require the wearer to return to their dentist once every six weeks or so for painful adjustments, but the invisible variety work constantly, meaning less pain, more consistent tooth alignment, and fewer follow-up visits.
Associated costs Orthodontics CostClear braces are removable, which means your normal brushing and flossing regime isn’t interrupted. With metal braces, it can be difficult to reach certain spots, which can sometimes mean tooth decay, discolouration or other issues that can be costly to fix. With these brace, the only additional costs incurred would be if you lost your aligner – but these are replaced every two weeks anyway.
You can’t put a price on happinessBecause clear brace are, well, clear, no one will even know you’re wearing them.
Although they cannot be used in some severe cases, they generally work just as well as normal metal braces, but with the added benefit of being undetectable!
The majority of brace wearers are teenagers and adults, and there is nothing worse than feeling you are being judged by the appearance of your mouth and losing confidence in yourself. Clear braces remove this hurdle completely, giving you perfect, straight teeth with no embarrassment or self-consciousness. You can’t put a price on that.
