Is it cheaper to get braces or Invisalign?


The overall costs associated with braces and Invisalign may vary based on several factors and which treatment is cheaper and more well suited to each patient will differ accordingly. 

Factors including the complexity of the patient’s dental needs, their overall oral health, the geographical location of the orthodontist’s practice, and more can impact the overall costs. 

Broadly, the price ranges of both treatments are fairly similar, typically falling between $3000 and $8000 for the total treatment costs. 

In many cases, Invisalign may be the more affordable alternative for patients. However, the specific details of the treatment as well as patient adherence to their treatment instructions will influence the total costs. 

Patients should consider their specific orthodontic needs, insurance coverage, and the potential need for additional dental appointments when making a cost comparison. 

Providers at Four Corners Dental Group will work with patients in tailoring treatment plans to their unique needs and set their expectations about the costs associated with braces or Invisalign. 

Both treatments do more than simply correct aesthetic concerns and can help improve overall oral health over the long-term helping patients avoid the need for more costly oral health interventions further down the line and offering another financial benefit. 

Which is faster, braces or Invisalign?


The time required to achieve desired results can differ significantly between traditional braces and Invisalign, depending largely on the complexity of the case. 

Traditional braces are often recommended for more complex dental issues and typically require 18 to 24 months for treatment. Invisalign might offer a quicker solution for mild to moderate cases of misalignment, with treatment durations averaging between 12 to 18 months. 

However, the effectiveness and speed of Invisalign heavily depend on the patient’s commitment to wearing the aligners for the recommended 20 to 22 hours per day. 

Adherence to their treatment instructions as well as excellent oral health practices are essential for patients to experience the benefits associated with Invisalign as expeditiously as possible. 

What is the success rate of Invisalign?


The success of Invisalign varies depending on each patient’s unique circumstances. However, it is associated with a high success rate for patients who adhere strictly to their treatment plan. 

The success of Invisalign in correcting dental alignment issues such as slight crookedness, gaps, and some bite problems has in some cases been reported to be up to or above 96%. 

Not only can Invisalign restore the aesthetic appearance of an individual’s smile it can also help correct or prevent a wide range of oral health concerns. 

The precise success rate can vary, however, based on the complexity of the individual’s dental condition and their adherence to the treatment regimen.

Patients need to have realistic expectations and follow their orthodontist’s guidance closely, including maintaining excellent oral hygiene and attending ongoing monitoring appointments at Four Corners Dental Group. 

Why choose Invisalign over braces?


The choice between Invisalign and braces will be made according to individual preferences and health factors. Many patients opt for Invisalign over traditional braces due to its discreet nature, comfort, and flexibility. 

Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and can be removed, which may make it more convenient and comfortable for patients to eat. Invisalign is particularly popular among adults and teenagers who are concerned about the aesthetic appearance of traditional braces and prefer the nearly invisible look of Invisalign. 

Additionally, Invisalign can often be less painful than traditional braces for some patients since the movement of teeth is more gradual and controlled. For those seeking a less noticeable, more comfortable, and hygienic method of straightening their teeth, Invisalign can be an excellent choice.
