Why People Are Not Getting Straight Teeth With Invisible Aligners

Over 70% of adults are affected by malocclusion (have crooked teeth) and half of them would consider some sort of orthodontic treatment to improve the alignment of their teeth. However, actually taking the steps towards getting straighter teeth can be difficult, with many issues surrounding cost and practicality. For many, the money they spend on dental treatment will be a considerable part of their earnings or savings, so it’s crucial that you make the right decision.

Before you take the leap into a specific model of dentistry, here’s why many people are unaware of the benefits of invisible aligners. Are you one of them?

Concerns about cost

Aligner treatment for both the upper and lower teeth can cost anything from €2000 to €10,000 in Europe. The high price is in part because the laboratory manufacturing the aligners will need to pay for the production cost involving the use of various machines such as scanners and 3D printers. The dentist overseeing the treatment also has to consider the fees he or she has to cover in their practice, including overheads such as the team’s salaries, the cost of equipment and their own time and expertise.

A dental practice is much like any other business; they’re offering a service that carries considerable costs. Unlike many other services the cost of the equipment used and the expertise needed can be considerable.

People are unaware there’s an alternative

Adult braces are a popular choice, but many reject the idea because they don’t want to wear obvious braces as an adult. Many don’t realise invisible aligners are a much more subtle and wearable option.

As mentioned above because of the high fees involved for the dentists with this method, they tend to recommend other orthodontic options such as clear fixed braces or lingual braces. Often people who have gone to see a dentist for invisible aligners end up receiving a different type of braces.

Lack of time or availability

Not everyone can make a monthly appointment, the work pattern of a flight attendant, model or actor, for example, can lead to a pretty irregular and unpredictable schedule.

In-office braces require regular check-ups and adjustments, which someone who works abroad for periods of time wouldn’t be able to accommodate.
