Invisalign braces are becoming more and more popular with our patients. Many adults who didn’t wear braces as kids, or teens that don’t really want the full metal look that goes with traditional braces, are candidates. Invisalign braces are clear and nearly invisible. Often people won’t notice that you’re wearing them at all!
Invisalign braces are gaining popularity with the teenage crowd too. Particularly with kids in their mid or late teens, since they can be more reliable than younger kids, and therefore, will actually wear them. Teens can be quite self conscious about braces with wires, so will be willing to go along with Invisalign treatment if it means a pass on the metal wires.
Invisalign Cost and Overview
If you’re new to Invisalign, here’s a basic overview of what they are, how they work and how much they cost.
Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners. Each set of aligners are worn for two weeks, you take them out to eat, drink, brush and floss. These aligners move the teeth in gradual steps.
Because the plastic aligners are taken out to eat, there are absolutely no food restrictions with Invisalign braces. With wire braces, several foods must be avoided such as popcorn, bagels, pizza crusts, corn on the cob and some candies. It’s great not having to restrict any food.
The cost of Invisalign braces is comparable to the cost of wire braces. Traditional wire braces cost on average of between $5,000 – $7,000 CAD. Simpler treatments (meaning teeth need less movement/alignment!) cost less and more complex treatments costs more. The average amount of time in braces is 1.5 – 2 years, which also can vary depending on complexity. Invisalign cost and treatment time runs about the same.
