What is Invisalign?
First off, Invisalign is actually a brand name. You may have heard people talk about clear aligners or invisible braces. Well, that’s exactly what Invisalign is.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. The clear aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material that is custom-fit to your teeth. They are worn over your teeth and can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing.
Invisalign vs Traditional Braces
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign and all other brands of clear aligners are virtually invisible and do not have any metal wires or brackets, which makes them a popular choice for adults and teenagers who want to straighten their teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces.
Treatment with clear aligners is more comfortable and often faster than traditional braces. It can be used to correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, and gaps between teeth. There are now hundreds of different clear aligner brands on the market.
Why Your Invisalign Cost Can Fluctuate
The cost of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on several factors, including the severity of your orthodontic issue, the length of your treatment, and the specific services included in your treatment plan (such as the type of retainer provided).
On average, Invisalign treatment can cost anywhere from $4,000 to upward of $8000 in Brisbane. Most health funds in Australia will pay a portion toward treatment with clear aligners, provided that your policy includes Orthodontic coverage. On average, our patients get back between $1200 – $2400 from their health insurance.
