Invisalign cost in uk??

#1 Post by alibaba »

For all those in the UK just wondering what your total costs have been? Im in Liverpool, my friend was quoted £3100 for the upper arch alone- I think this seems quite expensive, just wondering how others compare??

Well I phoned my orthadontist (a couple of years ago now though) and they said it was £4500 for BOTH top and bottom, however I'm not sure if that seems right? and it has probably gone up by now anyways. I think it depends on the severity of each case?

The average cost in the UK is £3600 for half arch and £4100 for a full arch. This is regardless of whether you need top, bottom, or both.

As as FYI my friend has recently started wearing an alternative brand of clear alingers. The cost for an 8 week course is £1500. However, the aligners aren't nearly as well fitting and invisible as Invisalign.

100 days left for me and counting!!

£4000 but there will be extras to pay 4 they will not start invisalign until
1st, consult and xray and moulds £155
2nd, any cavs filling £60 for silver
3rd, extractions which i think £60 a tooth
4th, hygienist visits every 3 months around £60 a time
5th, whitening when done £400

so total cost more like £5500 total, that means if you have treatment over 2 years its about £50 a week now thats scary with all this mortgage crap going on :cry:

For me its £3450 all in. The only additional fee I had to pay was £40 for a tooth extraction. This is a fixed price for any number of trays available at Brighton Dental Centre

The UK is a nightmare for high prices. I've had one quote for £4k (both arches) so far - the North of England certainly aint cheaper. :?

I try and comfort myself with the fact that our dentists suffer the same high costs of living and hence need to charge these prices.

Fandabidozi a fellow northerner :)

Meanwhile, petrol in the UK reached £5 a gallon. That works out to be $8.37 per US gallon.

Americans pay around $4 a gallon.

I think we are all gonna have to be self sufficient in the future as everything from food to oil has gone crazy, but the western nations have brought it on themselfs by getting china and india to make cheap goods, which gives them more money to spend on more food and throw away the bicycles and replace them with cars which just happen to run on petrol. I can not believe nobody foreseen this happening :shock:

dam im done rambling now

There's a new 'revolutionary' dental clinic in London.

I noticed they had Invasalign, they say one arch from £2,750.

ouch & i thought our Sydney fuel prices were expensive, it's up to around $1.50 AUD per litre these days.

more on topic, my invisaligns have come in (YEWWW!) & I get them next Tuesday afternoon. I'm not 100% sure of the cost yet as I dont know how many aligners I'm getting (I do know its upper & lower though). But the rough estimate I've pulled out of the air is about $6500-$7000 AUD maybe? - Don't quote me on that, it's a very rough guess.

I'll post back next Tuesday with a more accurate figure.

I'm getting my Invisalign (starting today wooh!) in London, and my cost is £3500 (full arch would be £4500, but I'm just getting the front 6 teeth top and bottom done) - that seems to be fairly standard pricing in the UK.

I'm probably going to start a video blog to post to youtube about my Invisalign. Mine is quite a 'severe' case but is only 28 weeks (7 months) so should be interesting to see how it goes.
