How Affordable Is Invisalign®?


For decades, traditional braces have always corrected misaligned teeth. Most people do not love this form of teeth-straightening system because of the appearance of the sharp wires and brackets. Thanks to advances in dental care technology, you can now have your teeth straightened without the hassle of traditional braces. The American Association of Orthodontists recognizes Invisalign® as a more convenient way to straighten teeth. Yet, despite its aesthetic and painless benefits, the main concern for most people is Invisalign’s affordability. If you want to find out how affordable Invisalign is, here’s what you should know.
 


Factors for Cost


Many factors should be considered when it comes to Invisalign costs. Here are some of them:

  • Your orthodontist’s labor.

  • The work that your teeth and gums need.

  • Your location.

Despite these determinants, getting the Invisalign system is not as expensive as you think. With the right payment method, you can get your aligners without burning a hole through your pocket.


Affordable Funding Methods


Below are some of the easy payment methods you can use for your Invisalign system:


Monthly payment.

Search for orthodontic offices or dental clinics that offer monthly payment plans for their Invisalign clients. If you use this mode of payment, you don’t need to pay for your bill after one visit. Many dental clinics offer various payment plans based on the budget of their patients. Call the team at Ofir Orthodontics to discuss our payment options in more detail.

 

FSA (flexible spending account).

With FSAs, a certain amount from your pretax funds will be deducted from your salary. This will be set aside for any healthcare spending. You can only avail of your FSA through your employer. The funds in your FSA do not roll over to the next year, so you have to use what you have before the year ends.
 

HSA (health savings account).

Unlike the funds in an FSA, the money in an HSA account rolls over into the following year. Aside from this, you should also note that HSA requires you to have a “high-deductible insurance plan.”

 

CHIP (children’s health insurance program) and Medicaid.

If you have teens or children who receive support from the government for insurance, CHIP can cover their Invisalign treatment. Make sure that you work with your insurance representative and your dentist to create a case for your child. Note that cases differ in each state.

 

Zero-interest credit card.

If you make regular payments and pay the off-price before the APR introductory rate ends, you can create a payment plan without paying more money. Understand the promo policy of your bank so that you can get the most out of it and not end up paying more for your Invisalign treatment.
