Invisalign is a popular choice for those looking to straighten their teeth. Invisalign uses invisible, removable aligners, so if you’re self-conscious about wearing braces to realign your teeth, the discreet Invisalign system is a great solution for you.
Over 14 million people have chosen to straighten their teeth with Invisalign, so if you’re thinking about joining the many people that already have, you might be wondering what the benefits of Invisalign are and how expensive Invisalign is. Read on to find out more about Invisalign.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign clear aligners have many benefits, such as a flexible and more discreet treatment option. Invisalign is also more comfortable and ensures you can maintain good oral hygiene.
Unlike traditional braces, you can remove Invisalign aligners, which means you can take them out while eating and avoid getting food stuck in your teeth.
While they are removable, it’s recommended to wear your Invisalign clear aligners for 20-22 hours a day. However, the Invisalign system is quite flexible, and if you’ve not worn your current aligners for a sufficient period, you can delay the date that you move on to the next retainer.
Another benefit of Invisalign is that it ensures you can maintain good oral hygiene because you can take them out.
With wire braces, it is much harder to keep good oral hygiene, especially with flossing, but with the removable nature of Invisalign, you can simply take the aligners out while you brush and floss.
Invisalign aligners are much more discreet than traditional braces; the clear, custom-made aligners aren’t visible unless someone is really close to you.
The discreet nature of Invisalign is why it’s so popular and why millions of patients opt for this tooth straightening treatment option.
Due to Invisalign being custom-made to fit your teeth, it’s a more comfortable option for many. Using 3D computer technology, your dentist makes you new sets of aligners every two weeks and ensures they fit snugly over your teeth without discomfort.
Average UK Costs
According to Dentaly.org, Invisalign can cost between £2,000 and £5,500. However, the total cost of your treatment will depend on how much movement is required for your teeth and jaw.
The most common Invisalign treatment is the Invisalign Comprehensive, which costs around £4,000. That said, there are other cheaper options, including Lite and Express. Your dentist will be able to determine how much your Invisalign treatment will cost during your consultation.
Is Invisalign expensive, or is it cheaper than traditional braces in the UK?
The cost of Invisalign and traditional braces can differ, depending on how much correction is required to get your teeth into the ideal position. Some braces are cheaper than Invisalign, while others are more expensive.
Many people who have had Invisalign treatment say that the invisible aligners are a good balance of convenience, comfort, aesthetics and cost.
Can you get Invisalign on the NHS?
Invisalign isn’t available on the NHS. Children and some adults with medical needs can get traditional braces on the NHS, but you can’t get Invisalign treatment via the NHS.
Although the idea of paying up to £5,500 seems like a lot of money for Invisalign treatment, many dental practices offer payment plans or finance plans to help you spread the cost and make it affordable.
For example, if you’re looking for Invisalign in Sheffield, here at Mola Dental, we offer 0% finance payment plans so that you can spread the cost over six, ten or 12 months.
