If you’ve always wanted to straighten but don’t want to deal with high maintenance braces, then teeth aligners are a great alternative. They can help straighten your teeth over time without having to endure harsh brackets or wires. Plus, teeth aligners can be taken on and off rather than being permanently attached to your teeth.
Teeth aligners are discreet, so most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing them. It’s perfect for seniors who have moderately crowded teeth or mild spacing issues. Depending on your teeth, you could have perfectly straight teeth in as little as 10 to 24 months.

One of the most recognizable brands when it comes to teeth aligners is Invisalign. The price is similar to traditional braces, with Healthline reporting that prices can range from $3,000 to $7,000. There are multiple ways you can save money on these invisible braces, such as through your insurance provider. Alternatively, you can also pay with pre-tax dollars through your flexible spending account or health savings account.
Some doctors may also allow you to pay off the cost of Invisalign through a payment plan. Rather than paying thousands of dollars up front, you could pay in smaller monthly instalments. This is ideal for seniors who don’t have extensive dental coverage.
