There is a myth that Invisalign costs more than braces as it looks better and easier to use.. The fact is that the cost of braces and Invisalign is head to head these days.
The cost of orthodontic treatment like any other services is defined by two main factors: supplies and labor. To do braces, the cost of wire and brackets is not that significant but braces needed lots of in office chair time form adjustments to change of elastics and replacing lost brackets. On the other hand, Invisalign is very costly for supply of aligners as it relies on technology to design and manufacture aligners. Once treatment is planned and aligners are manufactured and attachment are placed, the treatment is less labor intensive as patient can be seen quickly to see if teeth needed any adjustment.
In conclusion, the price of Invisalign treatment is almost the same as braces treatment
