At Dental Associates of New England, we always provide flexibility that benefits the patient. This is one of the reasons we are among the leading dental care centers serving the Boston area. One of our more popular treatment options is Invisalign, an alternative to traditional metal braces that uses clear plastic aligners. Many patients wonder about payment plans for Invisalign and what those involve. Let's consider the cost of care right now.
What is the average cost of Invisalign treatment?
The average cost of Invisalign treatment can vary a fair amount from patient to patient. In general, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to getting braces. In order to get a personalized price quote for your treatment, it's important that you visit the practice and undergo a consultation. This will provide you with a full breakdown of treatment and the costs involved in advanced orthodontic care.
Why does the cost of Invisalign vary from patient to patient?
Invisalign treatment needs to be tailored to the needs of the patient. When patients require more in-depth or complicated care, it can bring the costs of Invisalign treatment up. This is especially true for patients who require oral surgery or various pre-Invisalign care to achieve optimal results.
In addition, some practices may charge more for treatment given their location and/or the credentials of the dentists/orthodontists who work at the practice.
This helps explain why personal consultations and price quotes are key to understanding the nature of Invisalign.
Will my dental insurance cover the cost of Invisalign?
Even though Invisalign offers aesthetic benefits over braces, it is an orthodontic treatment and is considered necessary for improved health and wellness. Be sure to check with your insurance provider to find out more about the level of coverage you will receive.
Is Invisalign an eligible procedure for flexible spending account (FSA) reimbursement?
As noted above, Invisalign is considered necessary for improving wellness, and it is thus an eligible procedure for FSA reimbursement. Keep in mind that FSAs have a limit of $2,550 that can be used to reimburse patients for eligible expenses and that you should check with you FSA provider for more information on the nature of your plan.
How does monthly financing for dental care work?
Many people who do not have insurance coverage or an FSA will turn to monthly financing options in order to pay for their Invisalign treatment. This payment option is similar to a traditional loan or credit card, with a trusted lending institution covering the total cost of care and the patient responsible for paying back a given amount on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply.
Are there advantages to monthly financing options?
Monthly financing helps patients budget out their care, understanding the costs involved and allowing them to save as needed to make the scheduled installments. It's a rather convenient option to consider.
