Compared to traditional braces, clear aligners offers many benefits to our patients! Your aligners are transparent and virtually invisible when you speak or smile. The aligners are also removable, so you can enjoy your favorite meals and snacks without damaging your aligners or getting food caught in hard-to-reach places the way you might with braces. This makes clear aligners an excellent choice for busy adults or image-conscious teens, making for a comfortable and convenient treatment experience.
Many young patients may be candidates for clear aligner therapy. Be sure to talk to our dentist about an orthodontic consultation for your teen or tween to see how we can help every member of your family enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
For some patients, yes. The cost of clear aligners treatment is covered in part by many major dental insurance providers. However, some insurance providers consider clear aligners a cosmetic procedure rather than a necessary orthodontic procedure, like metal braces. The important thing to understand is that your out-of-pocket expenses will depend on your individual plan and stated benefits. To help you understand your benefits and make the most of your coverage, our team will confirm your benefits and answer any questions you may have.
Just like any orthodontic treatment, the total cost of your clear aligners will depend on your unique needs. Thanks to the unique flexibility of clear aligners, your treatment plan is tailored to your case, so you’re only paying for the treatment you want and need. Your dentist will perform a full dental assessment and draft up a treatment plan during your visit. At this time, our team will provide you with a breakdown of all treatment costs so you know what to expect.
