Are you wondering about Invisalign cost? You've come to the right place! Here, we will take a dive deep into the topic of Invisalign treatment, with a focus on how to ensure the best possible value for money.
Choosing the Right Treatment Provider is Crucial
First and foremost, we highly recommend selecting a Specialist Orthodontist for your treatment. If you're seeking ways to lower Invisalign costs, you'll be pleased to discover that there are methods to achieve this without compromising treatment quality. We'll share more insights on cost-saving shortly, but it's important to emphasise that your choice of treatment provider is not an area where cutting corners is advisable.
People often think Invisalign treatment is the same no matter where you go. This is not the case however, as your treating clinician is the person who will diagnose your orthodontic issues, and consult with you in order to identify your smile goals. Based on your needs and desires, your clinician will devise a personalised Invisalign treatment plan, which is then translated into a series of aligners. Your clinician will then supervise your treatment, arranging any refinements as needed as your treatment progresses.
Whilst the Invisalign system is available for use by General Dentists as well as Orthodontists, only Specialist Orthodontists have had the relevant training and experience (beyond general dentistry) needed to ensure the highest possible level of expertise in designing beautiful, functional smiles. So, the benefits of entrusting your clear aligner care to a specialist orthodontist includes the following:
Expertise Beyond General Dentistry
A Specialist Orthodontist has an extra 2-3 years of dedicated training, honing in on every facet of orthodontics. If they've been in the field for a significant duration, you can be assured they've likely encountered cases just like yours, and bring a wealth of experience to the table.
Dr Martin Fine has over 30 years' experience as a Specialist Orthodontist, and was an early adopter of Invisalign. He has been providing Invisalign treatment for over 20 years.
Dr Fine's experience planning and carrying out Invisalign treatment means that he has a firm understanding of the capabilities of the aligners, and understands how to work with the Invisalign system to provide the best possible treatment results.
Advanced Case Management: Specialist Orthodontists have the ability to recognise and treat intricate, complex cases in a manner that ensures the best and fastest route to a great result.
Orthodontists are masters of the 'bigger picture', often called upon in complex cases involving multiple disciplines to plan cases from the foundations up, with other restorations and final cosmetic touches factored into an overall plan. Choosing the right professionals for the job can mean that you can get your treatment done correctly and efficiently the first time, potentially leading to overall cost savings.
Harmony of Form and Function:
A healthy, long-lasting result extends beyond its appearance. At the heart of orthodontics is the pursuit of a smile that's not just visually captivating but also functionally sound, with consideration given to the optimisation of tooth and jaw positions. Orthodontists are experts at planning cases which ensure that the longevity of your final result.
For example - did you know that correcting your bite can sometimes lead to reduced dental treatment cost in the long-run? This is because correcting traumatic bite relationships can reduce tooth wear and tear. This applies to natural teeth, as well as to any subsequent fillings or repairs, which may be difficult to maintain where the bite is problematic. Well-planned Invisalign treatment can be a 'stitch in time saves nine' when it comes to ensuring long-term dental health.
A Streamlined Approach:
Due to their additional training and expertise, it may be natural to assume that Invisalign cost will be greater when undertaken by a Specialist Orthodontist. Interestingly, this may not necessarily be the case.
It is worth considering the fact that Specialist Orthodontists deal exclusively in tooth straightening and bite correction, whilst General Dentists offering Invisalign will generally do so alongside other services.
By offering orthodontics exclusively, Specialist Orthodontic clinics are well-positioned to have their orthodontic overheads, clinic set-up, and their diagnostic and treatment planning processes tailored and streamlined in order to deliver Invisalign treatment in a highly-efficient manner.
Increased efficiency increases the leeway for a clinic to offer Invisalign cost savings where possible.
Unlocking your Smile's True Potential:
Whilst overall Invisalign cost is important, so is value for money. At Fine Orthodontics, we know that you want your smile to be your personal best.
Crafting the ideal orthodontic treatment isn't a one-size-fits-all task. It demands a nuanced understanding of various factors, striking the right balance for each unique individual.
Orthodontists possess the expertise to tailor a smile that seamlessly complements your facial features, from your jaw to your lips and profile. It's not merely about aligning teeth; it's about sculpting a smile with finesse, mastery, and meticulous attention to detail.
So, when considering the cost of Invisalign or other similar treatment solutions, it’s vital to factor in the value of a specialist orthodontist's expertise.
