Factors that Affect the Cost of Invisalign Teen

The price of Invisalign Teen in Columbus is influenced by several factors, including:

  • The severity of a patient’s dental misalignment. Logically, more severe cases take more time and effort to correct, leading to higher fees. Some cases may also require additional accessories, which can affect price as well.
  • Whether aligners are needed for one dental arch or both. Often, correcting misalignment of either the upper or lower teeth costs less than full-mouth treatment.
  • Compliance with treatment. If your teen makes some mistakes with their treatment, it could delay their results and incur a slightly higher overall cost.

Invisalign Teen vs. Mail-Order Clear Aligners: Which Is the Better Value?

You have probably seen advertisements for mail-order clear aligners. These systems may seem appealing because their overall price is often around $2,000, meaning that they cost significantly less than Invisalign Teen, which can cost up to $8,000 for complex cases. Before you make any decisions about which treatment to pursue, however, you should think about what you are getting for your money.

With Invisalign Teen at Polaris Orthodontic Center, your teenager gets the in-person support of a board-certified orthodontist. The aligners are designed to be as thin, comfortable, and effective as possible. They also have compliance dots so you can monitor your teen’s progress with the treatment.

With mail-order clear aligners, it might be challenging to get support if you run into any problems. Plus, the aligners may be made out of basic plastic, rather than Invisalign’s patented SmartTrack material. They usually do not have compliance dots or anything similar. Moreover, many patients who use mail-order clear aligners find themselves dissatisfied with their final results.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Invisalign Teen?

Some dental insurance policies include orthodontic coverage for minors, so there is a chance that your plan will cover at least a portion of the cost of your teen’s treatment. In fact, it might reduce your out-of-pocket expense by hundreds of dollars or more. Our team will help you as you navigate your coverage. We can also assist you as you file your claims. We want it to be as easy as possible for you to use your benefits.

Options for Making Invisalign Teen Affordable
