Typically, you will only need to visit our office once every six weeks or so. This will allow us to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to achieve your goals as efficiently as possible. Invisalign treatment requires about 12 to 18 months to complete.
The cost of your Invisalign treatments depends upon a variety of factors such as the complexity of your case and the number of aligners needed. Typically, the cost of Invisalign® at our practice ranges from $2,000 to $8,000. This price also includes one pair of clear retainers once treatment is complete. In comparison, the cost of braces is about the same, if not more expensive, ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 on average.
Often, insurance coverage for Invisalign is similar to that of other orthodontic options. If you do not have insurance or it does not cover the full cost of your treatment, we also accept financing through CareCredit®.
While many dentists offer Invisalign, a board-certified orthodontist can hold your treatment to a higher standard of care. Dr. Gala has undergone several years of additional training to develop an in-depth understanding of tooth movement and facial development. To receive his certification, Dr. Gala's knowledge and skills have been evaluated and deemed exceptional by a group of peers. He will design an efficient and effective treatment plan while striving for nothing less than optimal results.
