Edmonton Invisalign® Treatment Questions

There are many factors that will determine the cost of your Invisalign® treatment. The main factor will be how long your orthodontic issues will require to correct. More complex orthodontic issues will also affect the cost of your treatment with Invisalign® . Typically there are two types of Invisalign® care: Express cases – for minor orthodontic treatment, and Full cases – for more complex orthodontic issues. The cost of your Invisalign® treatment will be the same regardless of your insurance, but depending on your plan and provider, some of the cost for your Invisalign® treatment may be covered. For a more accurate estimate of what you can expect to pay for Invisalign®, book an appointment with one of our experienced orthodontists for your free initial exam and consultation.

The timeline for treatment with Invisalign® varies widely and will be determined during your treatment planning. This treatment plan will be based on how complex your orthodontic issues are, as well as your age. Things that we cannot factor into this initial timeline include how well your teeth respond to the pressure from the Invisalign® aligners. Everyone’s teeth are unique, and there’s no way for an orthodontist to give an accurate determination on how well you will respond until your treatment has begun. How often you wear your Invisalign® aligners will also affect how long you will need to continue your Invisalign® treatment.

We recommend first visits at age 8 to determine if your child could benefit from orthodontic treatment. Patients can begin with Invisalign® First treatments as young as 6-10 years old. Some parents prefer to wait until their children have all of their permanent teeth – usually around the age of 13. It’s also important to consider the maturity of your child. They will need to remember to clean their Invisalign® aligners, take them out while eating, and for the best results, wear them for a total of 22 hours a day. To find out if Invisalign® is right for your child, contact one of our knowledgeable orthodontists for your free initial exam and consultation.
