Read on to explore what affects the price of your treatment at our practice serving Mitchellville, MD, and beyond...
The State of Your Smile and Other Invisalign Cost Factors
Invisalign aligners can improve a number of dental issues including crooked teeth and gaps between teeth. The more complex your dental misalignment issues are, the more of these clear aligners you'll need, which will inflate the final price of Invisalign treatment.
The location of a practice can affect the price of orthodontic treatments. Dental professionals like Dr. Scott who practice near large cities like Washington, D.C., have greater overhead expenses than those who practice dentistry in less populated areas, which will result in a greater expense.
Dr. Scott is an experienced orthodontist who began practicing over 25 years ago. He has helped hundreds of patients successfully achieve straighter smiles through Invisalign, which is how he achieved Elite Provider status. Although he may charge more than a dentist with no specialty training, he takes measures to keep his care affordable, and your added investment makes it more likely to achieve the orthodontic results you want.
All dental insurance companies offer different levels of coverage for clear aligners and traditional braces. Dr. Scott's friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to consult with your insurance carrier before treatment begins to get you the maximum coverage possible for aligners, checkups, and more.
After your smile has been properly aligned, you will need a retainer to wear during sleep in order to keep your teeth from shifting back to their original positions. Retainers will add to the expense of treatment over time. Often, patients can wear the final Invisalign aligner in the series as a retainer, which can provide some savings.
A Worthwhile Investment
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?
Partially, yes. As with braces, most dental insurance plans will cover a portion of this treatment cost up to a certain limit, meaning you may need to pay some out-of-pocket fees. However, orthodontist Stuart Scott offers two easy financing options to make the aligners and treatment plan affordable:
Meanwhile, Dr. Scott offers discounts to teachers and members of the same family. He also accepts payments using your FSA (Flexible Spending Account from your employer) and HSA (Health Savings Account for patients with high deductibles). Although it's easy to find a dentist who can provide this solution, why not trust your care to an experienced orthodontist who can make Invisalign affordable on virtually any budget?
