Invisalign cost blog

We would argue the cost of Invisalign treatment is the single largest determining factor in deciding to go ahead with orthodontic treatment, so why does it always seem to be given such an elusive answer online? We’re here to dispel any myths, and be up front and direct about the cost of orthodontic treatment at Clear Smiles Orthodontics on the Gold Coast.

What determines the cost of Invisalign treatment?

The number of aligners and attachments you’ll have will vary depending on the amount of work that needs to be done. Invisalign do cap the appliance cost at a level they term the comprehensive package, meaning it doesn’t cost the providing doctor more for each aligner set past a certain number of aligners but there are other costs that rise external to the cost of the Invisalign aligner trays. Typically the more complex your misalignment issues are the more aligners you will need and with more aligners comes more appointments and time with the doctor which all adds to the cost of treatment.  

Eating with your aligners in, being reckless with where you leave them leading to lost aligners, and anything else that affects the progress of your treatment can lead to an increase in the cost of Invisalign treatment. Replacement aligners are usually at an additional cost to the patient and failing to follow the orthodontist’s instructions could lead to an increase in the length of treatment and subsequently the time you need to spend with the doctor which may not have been included in your original treatment plan agreement.

  • The experience of the orthodontist

Invisalign is a relatively new technology in modern orthodontics. Although it’s popularity has soared in recent years, some practicing orthodontists still have more trust in more traditional methods like braces. As such, if an orthodontist has a preference for using braces, they might increase the cost of Invisalign treatment to discourage new patients or simply because it requires much more of their time than compared to using braces. 

What does Invisalign cost?

You may have read ‘your teeth are unique’ or ‘every treatment is different and so the price is too,’ and ‘book a consultation to get a quote.’ Now, all statements are correct, but when you’re researching for specifics, what good does that do you? If you’re looking to compare to someone else’s treatment cost, you may find yourself short of any luck, or of any good for that matter. The simplest thing to do is work by the law of averages. Clear Smiles Orthodontics, on average, perfect 800+ smiles a year; the median age of Dr Semaan’s patients is 23, and the average cost of comprehensive Invisalign treatment fluctuates between $7000 and $9000.

Orthodontics Australia’s website explains “The Australian average price for clear aligners can vary by state, however clear aligner treatment may cost anywhere from $6500 – $9500 for a full 18-24 month treatment period.”
