How Much Does Invisalign Cost In Vancouver?

This is understandably one of our most asked questions at VCCID. Everyone wants to know – ‘How much does Invisalign cost in Vancouver?’ Invisalign is a highly sought after treatment and it’s a very popular, relatively new Orthodontic service. The cost of Invisalign can certainly vary from patient to patient, however, treatment costs generally range between $4000-$12000 for Invisalign in Vancouver. In general, it is roughly 7-8K on average. Invisalign treatment cost is comparatively similar to the cost of braces, but the treatments differ greatly. 

Invisalign can be slightly more costly but the convenience and aesthetic benefit of Invisalign make it a popular choice, regardless of the price comparison. Invest in yourself with Invisalign treatment that will greatly improve the look and longevity of your smile.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works by using clear, custom-fitted aligners to slowly move your teeth into place. This is a relatively new and innovative treatment in Orthodontics and is most frequently compared to braces for both the price and effectiveness. 

Invisalign is discreet and offers comfort while also aligning the teeth. Your dentist will perform x-rays and 3D imaging to form a replica of your mouth and jaw. Then, clear, plastic aligners are molded to perfectly fit your mouth.

These aligners are designed to slowly shift your teeth back into place and they need to be changed and tightened with regular check-in visits with your dentist. Here is an article we wrote recently that shares an in-depth analysis on how Invisalign works.

Invisalign treatment times can be as fast as 6 months to up to 2 years. Therefore, the cost is based largely on the amount of work that needs to be done to move the teeth into place.

If the case is simple, and there is only minor tooth movement required, the costs will be lower on average.

If the full mouth of teeth needs to be aligned or if the patient has an extreme case of misalignment, Invisalign treatment can be more costly –  depending on what is involved to achieve the desired result. The best way to determine the cost of Invisalign for your treatment case is to talk with your dentist or orthodontist.

Is Invisalign Worth It?

If you are looking for an aesthetic way to effectively align your smile – Invisalign is most definitely worth it. Invisalign is very popular among adults who did not receive orthodontic treatment growing up, or whose teeth shifted back out of alignment from childhood. Invisalign gives patients the freedom to smile and feel confident while undergoing tooth alignment treatment. 

They are often seen as far more aesthetic than traditional metal braces and they are comfortable, there is no metal and they are fitted perfectly to your teeth. Similarly, Invisalign aligners are also removable. 

They need to be worn for at least 22h a day, however, they can be removed during meals. As a result, there are no eating restrictions on Invisalign. Learn more about the difference Invisalign can make for you by visiting the Invisalign products page.

Payment Options for Invisalign 

Braces and Invisalign treatment are not always covered by health care plans. However, orthodontic work can be covered up to 50% in certain cases. We suggest discussing your options with your provider to determine what is and is not covered by your benefits plan. 

It is also possible to use a payment plan to pay for your Invisalign treatment. Because, you pay low monthly costs, rather than one bulk payment. However, the payment plan option makes Invisalign accessible to anyone looking to align their smile. Learn more about payment options on the Invisalign website.

Covid Phase II:  Dental offices reopening

 

We are “OPEN”

 

UPDATE May 22 2020

 

Dear patients:

 

The BC provincial health officer has given dental offices in BC the green light to reopen under “Phase II” regulations.  These regulations are dictated by WorksafeBC, the provicnical licencing body, the ongoing progression or diminishing of viral cases and current understanding of transmission, particularly in the dental office setting. 

 

The  greatest risk/concern re further spread of this virus is with those that are currently ill or who may have come into contact with someone who has been ill within the past 14 days. In the dental clinic the  concern is the generation of any aerosols that may contain virus particles.

 

Therefore when booking appointments  we will ask a series of questions to determine your risk. For those at risk of being Covid positive, treatment will be deferred until  the 14 day risk of transmission has passed. If treatment is of an urgent nature, we have  additional safety measures in place to provide emergency care, assuming it will not create a greater health risk. Alternatively referrals to a hospital may be  recommended for anyone with severe health risks who cannot be treated in office.

 

For those without contact or risk of Covid, we will be able to book your appointments. Upon arrival to the office you are required to complete a COVID screening  and consent form prior to being seen in the clinic area. The clinical staff will also do an assessment to determine if there is any risk. 

 

Similarly our staff will also be assessed daily to ensure none are ill or have had contact with a potential case of COVID within the previous 14 days.

 

We are required to modify our scheduling to allow for continued distancing and other measures to minimize potential spread. Therefore we anticipate a slightly longer waiting period for available appointments until this Phase II is complete.

 

Our primary concern is your overall health, consequently we have incorporated  additional protocols and precautions during this time to ensure the safety of patients as well as staff from this viral infection.  It involves additional barrier protection, modifying how procedures are done to avoid generating aerosols and sterilization protocols to decontaminate any surfaces that may have come in contact with aerosols. 

 

The good news is that over the past 50+ years the dental industry has learned to manage and control in-office transmission of many viruses, bacteria and outbreaks of  illnesses, and we anticipate these same protocols  will continue to protect yourselves as well as the staff. As we move through Phase II and  see this pandemic lose its “foothold” we expect we will slowly return to a more normal routine and scheduling of appointments. 

 

Of course your dental health is also paramount and therefore finding appointments for your care is also essential. Rest assured that we will be following up and contacting anyone who has missed appointments and those that are currently booked in the weeks ahead. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr Peter Balogh and all of us at VCCID
