A Guide to the Cost of Braces & Invisalign

One of the first questions most people ask at their consultation is: “How much do braces cost?” or How much does Invisalign cost?”

It’s difficult to provide a one-size-fits-all answer without first knowing each person’s particular situation, but this article will offer you some general pricing guidelines, including what to look for and what questions you may want to ask your orthodontist.

First, let’s think of getting braces or Invisalign as you would think of getting a quote for a paint job on the interior of your house. There are several factors that might influence the cost of the paint job, including:

  • The complexity of the job
  • What materials will be required
  • How long the job is estimated to take
  • The experience level and expertise of the contractor you hire

Because every person and every mouth is different, the cost of braces or Invisalign can vary drastically from one person to the next – or from one office to the next.

It may cost less to hire an inexperienced painter, but you most likely will not be happy with the end-result. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for…

These same principles apply to choosing an orthodontic provider for you or your child solely based on what the braces or Invisalign might cost.

When considering the short-term cost and long-term benefits of braces, it’s important to remember that:

  • People with straight, well-aligned teeth and a healthy bite can avoid gum disease, which has very serious health ramifications.
  • Properly aligned jaws and a healthy bite can reduce the risk of jaw joint disorders, which can ruin sleep or cause chronic headaches or migraines.
  • Both kids and adults with great smiles feel better about themselves, increasing their confidence and sustaining their mental and emotional well-being.
  • Adults with straight teeth are 45% more likely to get a job than someone with similar qualifications and crooked teeth.

Investing in your smile and in the health of your bite is one of the best investments you can make for your health – and for your personal and professional life!

Teeth aren’t something that you want to “fix just a little bit.”… 

…and finding the cheapest orthodontist possible may not be the best choice for the long-term health of your teeth and smile.

Why your bite may affect the cost of your treatment​

There’s more to braces and Invisalign than just straightening teeth . . . we also want to give you a healthy bite for life. 

Not only will a healthy bite look better, it will also ensure your teeth stay straight and will help avoid future tooth damage and jaw problems.  

As you can in the pricing table, the cost of braces or Invisalign will increase by $500 if bite correction is needed. 

So, what is bite correction and why does it cost more?

If you or your child has any of the bite problems below:

  • Overbite
  • Deep Bite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Impacted Teeth
  • Severe Crowding

…there’s a good chance that bite correction will be needed.

Properly correcting a bad bite is more complicated, it requires more office visits, and generally takes more time.  

Bite correction will often require an orthodontic appliance in addition to the braces or Invisalign. A bite correction appliance might include an expander, forsus springs, a herbst appliance, a TAD, or any number of appliances. 

To ensure our patients get the best outcomes and a healthy stable bite, our pricing for bite corrections allows for more treatment time, more visits, and all additional appliances to ensure proper bite correction.  

Just straightening teeth and not correcting a bad bite can lead to…

  • Future jaw joint problems
  • Tooth damage
  • Teeth that look too protrusive
  • An unstable bite that leads to your teeth getting crooked again

This means that you may end up getting braces a second time to fix what was missed before…

We believe that it’s ALWAYS better to do it right the first time and only do it once!

What are Premier Orthodontics’ Membership Plans?

Getting your teeth straightened and bite corrected with braces or Invisalign is just the first step. What happens AFTER your braces or Invisalign is completed is just as important as the orthodontic treatment.

We’ve had many patients visit us who had braces as a teenager and then…

  • They stopped wearing their retainers and their teeth shifted or...
  • They broke/lost their retainer and their teeth shifted or...
  • Their permanent retainer broke off and their teeth shifted or...
  • They had dental work completed and their retainer didn’t fit and then their teeth shifted...

….you get the idea.
