Invisalign is becoming an increasingly popular method of orthodontic treatment, and many prospective patients are unaware of the price and commitment that factors into a decision to be treated with Invisalign. Dr. John Walker and Dr. Liz Walker are specialists treating patients with Invisalign near Littleton, MA. Drs. Walker and the team at Walker Orthodontics know that cost is more than just money paid. Orthodontic treatment is also an investment in time, effort, and commitment.
The Cost of Invisalign versus the Cost of Traditional Braces
Braces and Invisalign can be very similar in cost, but Invisalign can be a more economical alternative for some patients. Invisalign costs range from $3,500 to as much as $8,000. Most patients’ treatment with Invisalign costs around $5,000, depending upon each patient’s needs and treatment goals. One of our friends at Walker Orthodontics says that traditional braces, on the other hand, can cost a patient anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000, depending on the amount of work needed.
