Invisalign is an excellent option for you. The cost of Invisalign, or any dental treatment for that matter, varies depending on where you live and the dentist you select. I would recommend seeing an experienced Invisalign provider for a complete evaluation. I always recommend doing some online research and finding a dentist with great before and after photos. This will give you a pretty good indication of what you can expect from the dentist that you select. Good luck and I hope this info helps you. Follow me if you have more questions.

Invisalign® should be a viable option in your case. I would recommend having a consultation with an orthodontist to discuss your treatment options. It is possible that your case may require only a few aligners and could be submitted as an express case of invisalign® which is typically less expensive. In reference to the question of effectiveness, Invisalign® does have some limitations with certain tooth movements. The crowding of the lower arch should not be a problem using aligner therapy. Vertical movements and leveling of your upper teeth may be a challenge. There are techniques that are used with clear aligners that address these difficult movements. I would recommend discussing these concerns at the consultation. I hope this information was helpful. Dr. C
