Is Adult Invisalign Worth It? Why a Straight Smile Is So Important By Mark Luria, DDS on June 26, 2024

Many adults contact us at Dearborn Family Dentistry to ask about Invisalign®, which uses clear orthodontic aligners to straighten teeth. It has many advantages over traditional braces since no brackets or wires are involved.

One of the recurring questions we hear is if Invisalign is truly worth the price of treatment at the end.

The team at our Dearborn, MI, dentistry practice believes that Invisalign is a great investment in your smile and your overall health. Let’s consider pricing and why many patients feel the cost is justified.

The Cost of Invisalign vs. Braces

The overall cost of Invisalign treatment is similar to the cost of traditional braces. There is some variation depending on the need for any preparatory procedures before you start the Invisalign process and any final touches when it comes to completing your orthodontic treatment plan.

When you visit our dental office in Dearborn, we can give you a custom price quote for your Invisalign procedure. We can also discuss insurance coverage to help reduce out-of-pocket costs as well as financing options that allow you to make monthly payments.

Adult Invisalign Won’t Interrupt Your Routine

Invisalign is convenient. The clear plastic aligners are easy to remove and clean. You can still eat your favorite foods while undergoing treatment. You can converse with ease without a speech impediment and go about your day normally.

Adult Invisalign Can Improve Your Long-Term Oral Health

Crooked teeth can lead to all kinds of health problems, such as teeth grinding (bruxism) and TMJ disorders (TMD). These can cause major wear and tear on your teeth and affect your quality of life. Invisalign can play a major role in treating conditions if you have them right now or preventing these issues from even developing.

Think of the money you can save in the long run by investing in Invisalign now.

Adult Invisalign Can Boost Your Confidence

If you feel self-conscious about your smile, orthodontic treatment is a great way to give your confidence a boost. Invisalign can enhance your self-image as well as your social life and your career prospects.

This may explain why many adults undergo Invisalign along with other cosmetic dentistry procedures and smile makeovers. A great smile can bring so many unexpected advantages to your life.

The Cost of NOT Getting Invisalign as an Adult

We mentioned above that Invisalign can help treat or prevent teeth grinding and TMD. Treating those conditions can be costly, requiring extensive restorative work and ongoing therapy to treat the jaw joint.

If you don’t get your teeth straightened and that leads to oral health problems, you may need thousands of dollars of major dental work later on due to the gradual wear and tear to your teeth, jaw joint, and other structures of your mouth.

Again, Invisalign is a great investment in your health and yourself.
