Grayslake, IL – You are your best investment – taking the time to improve your smile, or the smile of your child, will yield a great return. After all, your smile is often the first thing people notice when they meet you.

How much does Invisalign/clear aligner treatment cost in Grayslake, IL?

Dr. Michael Stosich of iDentity Orthodontics is a certified Invisalign provider and a board-certified orthodontist who treats patients of all ages in the Grayslake area, using a host of orthodontic treatment options, including clear aligners. And as he always explains to his patients, there are a few things to take into consideration when thinking about the cost of any orthodontic treatment.

  1. How extensive are the issues that need to be corrected? A more severe malocclusion will be a more involved treatment plan that may take longer to correct, and therefor may be costlier than a more straight-forward malocclusion.
  2. Where do you live in the United States? More urban areas, such as Chicago and its suburbs, have a higher cost of living than other areas. The cost of orthodontic treatment will be reflective of that.
  3. How experienced is your orthodontist? It is always best to be treated by a board-certified orthodontist. That’s because board certification shows that the orthodontist is committed to providing the highest levels of care. If you visit more than one orthodontist, and one has treatments priced significantly less than others, you may want to stop and ask yourself why that might be. It is worth it to pay slightly more for experience and knowledge so that you will have peace of mind knowing your smile is in great hands.

 

The cost of Invisalign/clear aligner treatment today is comparable to that of standard metal braces. The cost of Invisalign/clear aligner can range from $3,500 to $8,000, while standard metal braces can range from $3,000 to $7,000. But many people feel the benefits that Invisalign/clear aligners can offer outweighs any small difference in price there may be.

Invisalign/clear aligners are made of smooth plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and removable. Because they are clear, no one will even know you are wearing them. This is a big advantage to people who may already be self-conscious of their smiles because they won’t be drawing more attention to themselves. And because they are removable, you don’t need to make modifications to your diet. You can eat and drink anything because you’ll simply pop the aligners out before eating or drinking.

When it comes to paying for your Invisalign/clear aligner treatment in Grayslake, be sure to familiarize yourself with any insurance benefits you may have. Most dental plans will cover orthodontic treatment, and if they do, Invisalign/clear aligners should be a covered treatment option. At iDentity Orthodontics, Dr. Stosich never wants the cost of treatment to be a deterrent. iDentity Orthodontics works with all major insurance companies and will help ensure you get the most of your benefits. They also accept all major credit cards as well as interest free financing for up to two years.
