Fremont area patients ask about the prices of treatments such as Invisalign
Patients with misaligned teeth are often interested in learning about orthodontic treatments. However, many are turned off by the idea of covering the smile with metal brackets and wires for months at a time. They may be worried about the prices of treatment and whether they can afford to enhance the smile. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of Fremont’s StarBrite Dental encourages patients to consider Invisalign as an alternative.
Patients who hear of Invisalign are often interested in finding out if they are viable candidates. The best candidates for Invisalign are those with mild to moderate misalignment of the dental arch. Invisalign cannot be used when patients have significant misalignment that can only be resolved with conventional orthodontics. Invisalign works using clear aligner trays that are worn over the dental arch to change the alignment of the natural smile.
Price of treatment
There are several factors that are considered when patients are given a quote for Invisalign. Treatment cost is determined based on how many trays are needed to achieve results. There may be other costs incurred as well. For example, if patients do not comply with treatment, additional trays may need to be fabricated in the middle of treatment to get the results patients to desire. Compliance with Invisalign is incredibly important to keep costs low. However, most patients find the cost of Invisalign to be comparable to similar treatments with conventional orthodontics.
