What is More Affordable — Braces or Invisalign?

What is More Affordable -- Braces or Invisalign?

July 23, 2021

If you are considering orthodontic work to straighten your smile, the question, “What is More Affordable — Braces or Invisalign?” has probably crossed your mind. The good news is that both are extremely affordable these days, although Invisalign is slightly more expensive.

National Averages for Braces and Invisalign

When looking at the national averages for Invisalign® pricing, they range from $3,000 to $5,000. Pricing is based on the degree of correction necessary, so no two treatment plans will be identical. If you have minor alignment issues, your costs could be lower. With more complex corrections, prices can be as high as $8,000.

Average pricing for traditional metal braces normally falls between $2,000 and $6,000. Because prices are based on the needs of each individual, these also may vary greatly from minor to complex alignment problems.

As you can see, the cost of both treatments is quite comparable. There are options that may reduce the price, such as dental insurance. Some plans may offer coverage for metal braces but not Invisalign®, or vice versa. If cost is one of your determining factors, please check your dental insurance coverage plan to see if they have restrictions on the type of orthodontic care.

Making Care Affordable in Allen, Texas

Even though orthodontic care can be considered expensive, Creekview & McKinney Orthodontics works hard to make it affordable for everyone. The first step is offering lower than national average pricing models. In McKinney and Allen, TX, the average pricing ranges from $2,000 to $5,600.

All pricing depends on the severity of the problem being corrected and the expected duration of treatment. One thing to note about orthodontic care is that the pricing includes the entire treatment. So, even though it may seem like a lot, the treatment extends over a period of time, without additional unexpected expenses.

Creekview and McKinney Orthodontics works with a wide variety of insurance plans, which offset some of the initial cost. Once those adjustments have been made, there are other financing options available that will keep monthly payments in a range of $99 to $129, which fits nicely within most household budgets. Payments are possible with 0% financing in some instances, or through third-party lenders such as Lending Point.

As we have demonstrated, the costs are very comparable. When it comes to making your final decision, it is always best to follow the recommendations of the orthodontist. While Invisalign® is great for minor to complex alignment problems, traditional metal braces might get a better result in your case. The orthodontist will recommend the treatment best suited for your smile.

At Creekview and McKinney, they make both treatments affordable. Please ask about insurance coverage and payment programs during your consultation appointment.
