Investing in Invisalign or other Clear Aligner Therapies is an investment in your smile & a lifetime of optimal health like any other orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, these clear plastic aligners work to straighten your teeth without any metal, wires, or brackets. In fact, most people love how they are nearly invisible – hence their name.
Once thought to be an expensive option for obtaining the perfect smile, Invisalign is now an affordable choice. There are competitors in the market now and have pushed Invisalign to be more competitive in price. Let’s take a look at how much Invisalign costs in Missouri.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign transforms for your smile. It allows you to eat, drink, brush, and floss just like normal – all while straightening your teeth. From the very first meeting with your orthodontist, you will begin the process of obtaining more confidence and a bright smile. Using a 3D system, scanned images of your teeth allow for the customized aligners to be created.
Once the aligners are created, your orthodontist will thoroughly examine your teeth to make sure that they fit properly. If adjustments need to be made, they will be done at this time. From then on, you will meet with your orthodontist every couple of months – or on a schedule personally created for you. During these visits, the progress of your teeth will be reviewed and you will receive your next set of aligners. Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments or recommendations at this time, too.
This process will continue until the desired result is achieved. It could take a few weeks, it could take several months, it could take even longer. Invisalign offers a very individualized approach to achieving your new smile, so there is no set, definitive time frame. Though, throughout the entire process, you will begin to see the changes in your teeth as you wear your aligners.
The Cost of Invisalign
Just as the process of using Invisalign is based on an individual’s assessed need, the cost has some variance as well. In Missouri, the cost of Invisalign can fluctuate whether you are in rural areas or a big city like St. Louis or Kansas City.
Of course, you will also need to take into consideration the extent of correction your teeth need, the actual length of the treatment plan, and any other details, additions, or adjustments recommended by the orthodontist.
As a general rule, the national cost average for Invisalign is roughly $4,500.00 to $5,500.00. However, in Missouri, these costs can range from $3,000.00 to $6,000.00 – starting at well below the national average. Rural areas tend to see lower costs with suburban areas on the higher end.
Keep in mind that these costs are very broad and should not be used as a determining factor for your decision to invest in Invisalign. Remember, Invisalign is individually designed for you – so your cost will be, too.
