Clear Aligners Cost South Africa?

How much do Invisalign braces cost?

Are they worth the money, or is it better to go with traditional braces? The typical price of Invisalign braces is usually slightly higher than regular braces. The average cost is between R48,000 and R110,000; your dentist or orthodontist can better estimate the price.

Clear aligners have become a popular choice for people looking to straighten their teeth. They are a discreet option that can be worn without anyone knowing you are wearing them. But what about the cost? How much do they really cost? In this blog post, we will explore the cost of clear aligners in South Africa and discuss some of the factors that play into the price.

The average cost of clear aligners in South Africa is R50 000 to R100 000. However, the actual cost will depend on several factors such as the severity of your case, the brand of aligners you choose, and whether you have insurance.

What factors affect the cost of Clear Aligners in South Africa?

One of the biggest factors that will affect the cost of your treatment is the severity of your case. If you have a more complex case, it will take longer to treat and will therefore be more expensive. The type of aligners you choose will also play a role in the cost. There are many assorted brands available on the market, and each one has its own price point.

Finally, whether you have insurance will also affect the cost of your treatment. If you have dental insurance, chances are that it will cover at least a portion of the cost of your clear aligners. However, if you don’t have insurance, you will be responsible for the entire cost of your treatment.

If you are considering clear aligners to straighten your teeth, be sure to speak with your dentist about all the factors that will affect the cost of your treatment. With a little bit of research, you can find a treatment plan that fits both your needs and your budget. Some factors that will affect the cost include how many aligners are required.

They are a series of clear, almost invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks to a new set. Each aligner is specifically manufactured for your own teeth. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by OptiSmile. Normally patients will have between 18 to 30 aligners over the course of their treatment.

An added feature is that we have a virtual treatment plan which shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This shows you upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From these results, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.

Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interference in your day-to-day life and can potentially be used in conjunction with other cosmetic dental solutions, such as veneers if teeth are particularly deformed or discolored.

Unlike standard braces, the discomfort associated with the Invisalign system is minimal, because there is less risk of irritation from wires.

Discomfort is mostly limited to the beginning of each new stage of treatment. Most patients report pressure, which is a sign that the treatment is working. Pressure isn’t likely to last for more than a couple of days after each new aligner.

No. Unlike traditional wires and brackets, you can eat whatever you desire while in treatment because you remove your aligners to eat and drink. Thus, there is no need to restrict your consumption of any of your favorite foods and snacks. Also, it is important that you brush your teeth after each meal and prior to re-inserting your aligners to maintain proper hygiene.

Invisalign is a good option for the following reasons:

  • Invisalign are clear plastic aligners, which makes them discreet. This means that you can undergo quite extensive orthodontic alterations without it being too obvious.
  • Invisalign has the benefit of being removable, meaning you can take them out when you eat, drink or clean your teeth, this means that you aren’t restricted in terms of what you can eat while you are using Invisalign.
  • They don’t have any metal wires that are likely to irritate the inside of the mouth and you won’t have to spend as much time at the dentist as you would have done with standard braces.
  • You’ll have an idea of what your teeth will look like at the end of treatment before you even start, due to advanced dental visualization technology, that also assists in the creation of the various moulds.

It’s not unusual for orthodontics treatments to alter speech slightly, but the mouth adjusts relatively quickly. You may likely talk with a slight lisp for a day or two, but the tongue gets used to its new restrictions really quickly.

Invisalign are available for both adults and teenagers. Perhaps you’ve wanted to straighten your teeth for a while now, whether to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or even a special occasion like your wedding day. But you’re at the stage in your life where metal braces are just not a choice you’re willing to consider. Or maybe you’re a teen or the parent of a teen looking for an effective but modern-day solution without having to feel self-conscious.

Either way, OptiSmile can provide you with a simple yet effective solution to accomplish this without having to put your life on hold. With Invisalign or Invisalign Teen you’ll have the convenience and flexibility to live your life without the hassles associated with other types of treatment. The aligners are transparent and difficult to detect when worn,and are able to be removed for a short space of time such as an important event.
