How Does the Price Compare for Invisalign vs. Braces?
Orthodontic treatments are highly customised to the individual, and as a result, the cost of different treatment methods will vary based on the unique details of each patient. When it comes to selecting the right orthodontic solution, patients often wonder which option is more affordable. Two popular braces methods that can provide optimal teeth straightening results for the right candidates include traditional metal braces and Invisalign®.
Traditional braces entail metal brackets and wires, while Invisalign involves clear plastic aligners. The cost of traditional braces and Invisalign is often comparable, but the complexity of your orthodontic needs will influence which method may be more cost effective. Patients who need more extensive bite correction or teeth straightening may require more visits to the dentist, which can increase the total cost of treatment. During your initial appointment, our dentists will discuss the pros and cons of traditional braces versus Invisalign, explaining how the cost of each may compare based on your orthodontic needs.
While our dentists at The Paddington Dental Surgery encourage patients not to choose an orthodontic professional based on cost alone, they do understand that price is an important factor that must be considered. Our goal is to make sure your orthodontic treatment fits comfortably within your budget, which is why we offer a variety of payment and financing options. After you have been evaluated by one of our orthodontic professionals, our team can provide you with a cost quote so you know what to expect.
We never want you to feel pressured to commit to a treatment before you are ready, so we recognise you may want to take some time before deciding about your orthodontic care. Our team welcomes any questions you may have throughout this period to help you make an informed decision about your oral health.
