Correcting position of the teeth with the aesthetic Invisalign splint is an important and newer form of therapy in contemporary orthodontics. The “Invisalign aligner” consist of strong plastic trays that are fabricated especially for you. As the name suggests, they are INVISIBLE..!!!
Invisalign aligners are helpful to individuals who want to achieve a beautiful smile with minimal interference in day to day life. The best part about the whole process is that most people don’t even realise your undergoing treatment as these aligners are absolutely not visible.
These aligners are comfortable to wear and absolutely painless as compared to braces. And due to advancement of technology, they are faster compared to any other aligners.
This advanced aligner technology processing is carried out in USA, hence it expensive compared to other treatments. The cost depends upon the severity of the case- single jaw or both upper and lower jaw treatment. A very simple case with 7 aligners only for the upper jaw can cost 1 .2 lakh and the cost can exceed up to 3 Lakhs plus depending upon the severity of the case. But their costing is way cheaper in India compared to USA. The important factor here is your doctor is Invisalign certified.
Other aligners like Clearpath or K aligner are cheaper versions of these aligners but are only recommended in simple cases as they do not have 3D movement as invisalign. Their costing is 30 to 50% less as compared to invisalign.
In conclusion, if you want the best it is better to go for invisalign, even though it is a bit costly- but it is value for money. One can also opt for Clearpath or flash or K aligners in simple cases. Other options available are ceramic or lingual invisible braces which are further cost effective.
