We are open - safety is our top priority!
If you’re dissatisfied with the straightness of your teeth, today’s orthodontics offer more options than just traditional metal braces. Using virtually invisible Invisalign® aligner trays, our dentists offer you an inconspicuous, convenient way to straighten your teeth.
What Are Invisalign Braces?
Invisalign uses a series of customized, transparent aligner trays that fit snugly over your teeth. While they’re not braces in the traditional sense, aligner trays similarly shift your teeth over a period of months. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, giving your teeth time to move a bit closer to their desired positions. Invisalign is often used for mild and moderate orthodontic issues, and they’re nearly invisible to others. With Invisalign in Springfield, only you and our dentists know you’re wearing transparent braces.
What Are the Traditional Invisalign Costs?
You can expect Invisalign to generally cost about the same as conventional metal braces. Our Invisalign dentists will determine your specific Invisalign cost based on the scope of your orthodontic problems. Your actual Invisalign cost may be made more affordable with dental insurance, flexible payment options and financing options.
How Long Will Invisalign Take to Correct Teeth?
The duration of your Invisalign treatment is affected by how much teeth straightening and realigning you need. Most adults complete the treatment in about a year, but treatment plans can last from 10 months to two years. For teens, treatment time varies more broadly.
Where Do I Find an Invisalign Dentist?
Licensed orthodontists and general dentists can provide the treatment once they’ve completed dedicated Invisalign training. Our experienced Invisalign dentists will develop a plan to help you achieve a straight smile as quickly as possible. Contact our office for more information about Invisalign.
Are Invisalign or Braces Better for Me?
It’s great to have choices for orthodontic treatment, but those options can make it confusing to weigh the benefits of Invisalign vs braces. Our trusted dentists discuss the advantages of Invisalign vs braces with you so you make an informed decision. If you have simple or moderate issues, Invisalign can be as efficient as braces. If you need extensive or complicated corrections to your bite, braces are often preferred.
What Benefits Can I Expect with Invisalign?
Many people choose Invisalign instead of braces for the system’s discreet, convenient perks. Consider the following advantages:
- Aligner trays can be removed any time you wish.
- You can usually eat any food you want.
- You’ll smile without worry that others will see your braces.
- Cleaning your teeth is easier and more efficient without attached braces.
Is Invisalign Suitable for Just Any Patient?
Invisalign isn’t ideal for every person. If you have simple or moderate orthodontic problems like slight overcrowding or a faint underbite, Invisalign in Springfield may be right for you. The treatment is not recommended for adults with substantial or complex orthodontic problems, nor is it suitable for children. Schedule a consultation with our experienced Invisalign dentists to find out if you can benefit from Invisalign treatment.
Is Treatment Covered by Insurance?
In many cases, your dental insurance partially covers Invisalign. This Invisalign insurance can sizeably reduce your overall Invisalign cost, so call our office to find out how to use your insurance to benefit from reduced pricing.
What Happens to My Teeth After Invisalign?
Teeth naturally move as time goes by, so you may need to wear Invisalign retainers to keep your teeth in their corrected positions.
Invisalign is an important option for many adults and teens who want a convenient, subtle solution to correcting crooked teeth. Call our dental office to learn how you can start straightening your teeth with Invisalign in Springfield.
