Invisalign, or any clear orthodontic treatment, is expensive, averaging about $5,000 in the US. “How can I save myself the tooth correction ? ” is a question in the minds of many candidates.

First of all, “price comparison” is NOT the way to save on Invisalign Dubai, although it may seem reasonable and proven . Why not?

1) Choosing a price is also choosing the provider that offers that price! The price comparison kills the flexibility of the provider… that’s an expensive price!

2) Price comparison focuses away from quality, the ultimate goal for your smile with Invisalign treatment . If the quality is poor, the time and money invested is lost. While a TV of poor quality can be returned for a full refund, orthodontic treatment cannot.

3) Price comparisons tend to identify lower quality. This can mean an Invisalign provider trying to gain experience, taking shortcuts when planning treatment, or simply aiming to meet a quota. Unlike a TV that has independent online reviews available, an Invisalign provider limits you to his/her self-referential claims and testimonials.

4) In large cities with enough competition between providers, most prices are similar (within a few hundred dollars) and therefore a poor differentiator of providers.

Here’s a simple tax strategy to save on Invisalign while maintaining full flexibility in terms of provider and quality: Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA).

FSAs allow you to pay for orthodontic braces with pre-tax dollars. For pre-tax dollars, you save 25% to 28% in federal taxes (if household income is between $34,000 and $172,000), about 5% in state taxes, 7.65% in FICA taxes (if under $107,000)…these add up to almost 40%! With an FSA, a $5,000 Invisalign treatment comes down to just over $3,000—although you still have to pay $5,000, the FSA saves you nearly $2,000 in taxes.

What are the mechanisms of the FSA? If your employer offers an FSA, you simply fill out a form and specify an amount to be deducted from each paycheck—about $417 per month, assuming a $5,000 Invisalign treatment . To spend the amount in your FSA, simply use the debit card provided by your employer – or simply start treatment and submit the invoice/receipt to the employer for reimbursement (full invoice OK, even if financed). That’s it! When your employer issues the W-2 the following year, your income will be $5,000 less and you won’t have to pay taxes on it, saving you about $2,000 without additional IRS filings.

Well, your Invisalign provider has nothing to do with this – don’t ask him or her about FSA, lest you look blank. You would still pay the quoted price to the Invisalign provider. Whether you pay upfront or financed, the flexibility is yours and the FSA is compatible both ways.

How do you care for your Invisalign aligners?

Another offer from aesthetic dentistry: tooth correction without braces. Invisalign is the technology behind it. It is a removable and “invisible” aligner made of a clear thermoplastic material that is specially made to align the client’s teeth invisibly: Invisalign . It should be worn for two weeks before being replaced with another set. With the aligners, the teeth move closer and closer together until the desired result is achieved.

Proper use and care should be practiced for best results. After all, cosmetic dentistry does not end only with the procedure or the installation of the device, you do not have to worry about it.

teeth and Invisalign are clean before wearing the aligner. Proper oral hygiene is of course a must. Clean Invisalign by gently brushing it. If an Invisalign cleaning kit is available, use it; If not, use your regular toothpaste to clean it, but avoid using detergents with harsh chemicals. Invisalign is generally stain resistant, but if a stubborn stain persists, the invisalign can be cleaned by soaking in 1/2 cup room temperature water with 10 drops of Clorox bleach for 20 minutes. However, only do this occasionally. You don’t want this cosmetic dental appliance to look and/or feel weird from bleaching.

Invisalign does not tolerate temperatures warmer than the mouth. Invisalign is made of synthetic resin and will deform when exposed to extreme heat.

Eating and drinking hot food and beverages while wearing Invisalign is not permitted. Remove Invisalign before consuming hot food and beverages. However, it is recommended to drink cool water with Invisalign. Avoid staining the Invisalign by not smoking or by removing it before smoking. Do not chew gum with Invisalign as it will stick to the aligner. There are instances when it ‘s okay to eat and drink with Invisalign , but generally remove the aligners before eating and drinking.

And finally, store the aligners in the case provided when Invisalign is not being worn. That’s what they’re here for.

Aesthetic dentistry is exactly what it is: cosmetic. Not permanent, reversible and requiring care. Even permanent dental procedures have proper care instructions, right? So remember to take care of your Invisalign .
