We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
If you want to enjoy a straighter smile, the subtle, convenient Invisalign® system may be a good alternative to conventional metal braces for your dental needs.
What Does Invisalign Do to Fix Teeth?
Invisalign works like a set of transparent braces, gently and progressively shifting your teeth into correct alignment. During Invisalign treatment, you’ll wear a series of clear plastic aligner trays that fit neatly over your teeth. Each set of trays moves your teeth slightly, shifting them vertically or horizontally. If needed, the trays can even rotate teeth. You’ll wear each set of trays for about two weeks before transitioning to the next set. Alignment trays are virtually undetectable when you wear them, so only you and our trusted dentists will know that you are wearing Invisalign in Springfield.
What Is the Price of Invisalign?
While your final Invisalign cost depends on the amount and complexity of your individual treatment needs, affordable Invisalign and metal braces are usually similar in price. You may be able to reduce your overall Invisalign cost with dental insurance, health savings accounts, low-interest financing plans and flexible payment options. Feel free to call us for a consultation and specific Invisalign cost details.
Will Invisalign Be Covered by My Insurance?
Many dental plans cover a large portion of your Invisalign expenses, just as they generally cover a variety of other orthodontic treatments. For plan limitations and details about your Invisalign insurance coverage, check with your dental insurance provider.
Does Invisalign Require a Large Amount of Time to Complete?
Adults can often complete their Invisalign treatment within 12 months, although some treatment plans take as long as 24 months. Our dentists will create a custom treatment plan for you, taking into consideration how much your teeth need to be rotated, aligned or straightened. Once your treatment plan is complete, you’ll discuss the treatment duration with our dentists.
Do Invisalign Dentists Receive Special Training?
Invisalign dentists can be general dentists or licensed orthodontists who have completed a series of Invisalign courses and training. Our dentists are experienced with Invisalign in Springfield, helping you achieve a newly aligned smile. Schedule an appointment with one of our experienced Invisalign dentists to get started.
What Are Important Factors in Choosing Invisalign vs Braces?
When you’re trying to choose between Invisalign and traditional braces, you should consider the treatment effectiveness for your particular issues. You may also want to consider the treatment’s ease of use and other benefits. If you have fairly moderate overcrowding, malocclusion or crooked teeth, Invisalign can be as effective braces. Braces may be recommended for more severe issues. You can discuss the benefits of Invisalign vs braces with our knowledgeable dentists to inform your decision-making.
Why Is Invisalign a Good Choice?
In many cases, adults and teens find that Invisalign offers a number of benefits over metal braces. The following are a few Invisalign perks to consider:
- Aligner trays are virtually invisible, so you can smile without most people knowing that you’re wearing clear braces.
- You can remove aligner trays when you want.
- You can easily brush and floss your teeth without braces getting in your way.
- Aligner trays are easy to clean.
- You have no food restrictions with Invisalign.
What Happens After Invisalign?
You may need to wear Invisalign retainers after you’ve completed your treatment. The retainers keep your newly straightened teeth in place. You’ll also need to observe the same good oral hygiene and routine check-up schedule that you did before and during treatment.
