Invisalign vs Braces Cost?

The cost of any orthodontic treatment is determined by various factors, including:

Since we love Invisalign and find it works so well, we do not charge different prices for each service. All of our patients can choose Invisalign or braces without paying more. As long as they are candidates for both treatments — which most people are! That way, you can find the option that matches your needs. 

Many orthodontists charge more depending on the type of treatment. However, we provide all orthodontic treatments at an affordable rate of $2,500 to $8,500. These estimates do not include insurance, which can substantially reduce the cost of treatment. 

During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Rick will examine your teeth and discuss your treatment options, possible timeline, and costs.

We also offer our patients several financing options so you can find the treatment option that is best for you.
