Invisalign lets adults get straight teeth without traditional braces.
Unfortunately, the costs keep Invisalign from many patients who might otherwise consider adult ortho.
In a dentist survey we conducted, we found the average cost of Invisalign treatment from a general dentist was about $4,800.
Specialists were a little more expensive at around $5,400.
Treatment from an orthodontist averaged about $6,900.
Jim Du Molin and Julie Frey discuss what dentists think about Invisalign braces:
“Costs are too high for this to be a mainstream treatment for people willing to have adult orthodontics,” said a Michigan Dentist.
“The lab fees are excessive, and Invisalign could use some competition,” said a New York Dentist.
While there’s a lot more interest in adult braces than there used to be, it’s still not quite mainstream.
And with lab costs like that, it’s hard to imagine it truly going mainstream.
