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’re unhappy with the straightness of your teeth, our dentists can help you achieve a straighter smile with the discreet, clear plastic Invisalign® system.
How Do Invisalign Clear Braces Work?
Invisalign uses transparent plastic aligner trays to gradually shift your teeth into place. You’ll wear each set of custom-made trays for about two weeks then progress to the next set. Each tray is engineered to snugly fit your teeth and exert just enough pressure to move your teeth to the next position. This treatment is effective for correcting a number of mild and moderate orthodontic problems. Call us to see if Invisalign in West Springfield is right for you.
What Does Invisalign Cost?
Affordable Invisalign and conventional metal braces generally cost about the same. Your actual Invisalign cost, though, depends on the scope of your treatment needs and the complexity of your case. Our knowledgeable dentists can outline your total Invisalign cost after your needs have been thoroughly evaluated. Often, dental insurance plans, low-interest financing and flexible payment options can reduce your costs.
How Long Will Invisalign Treatment Take?
The length of your treatment depends on the amount of correction your teeth and bite need. Our Invisalign dentists will develop a treatment plan for you that lasts from 10 to 24 months. On average, adult treatments are completed within about 12 months, but teen treatment times vary.
Who Provides Invisalign Dentistry Services?
Treatment with Invisalign can be provided by general dentists and licensed orthodontists with Invisalign training. Our Invisalign dentists are knowledgeable and experienced in correcting a variety of alignment issues with orthodontic aligner tray systems. Schedule an appointment with our trusted dentists to take your first step toward a straighter smile.
How Does Invisalign Compare to Braces?
While it’s easy to be won over by Invisalign’s nearly invisible appearance, there are other factors to consider too. Effectiveness is important when weighing Invisalign vs braces. Fortunately, Invisalign is just as effective as braces for correcting moderate alignment and bite issues. These moderate problems include conditions such as small tooth gaps and slightly crooked teeth. For more serious orthodontic issues, braces may offer more efficient solutions. You can learn more about the benefits of Invisalign vs braces during your consultation with our Invisalign dentists.
What Are Invisalign Benefits?
- You can remove aligner trays at any time, which is particularly helpful during mealtimes, cleanings and special events.
- You don’t have painful metal wires or brackets.
- You can eat without special food restrictions.
- Dental office visits are brief and scheduled four to six weeks apart.
- You can smile without metal braces shining from your teeth.
Can Anyone Get Invisalign?
Invisalign in West Springfield is not an ideal treatment for everyone, but it is a good option for adults and teens with moderately serious orthodontic issues. Children are usually considered poor candidates for Invisalign since their teeth and mouths aren’t fully developed.
Do Dental Plans Cover Invisalign?
Your dental insurance may cover part of the cost of Invisalign treatment. This Invisalign insurance often significantly reduces treatment expenses. Contact our office for details about your treatment and costs, or call your insurance provider for benefit details.
What Should I Do After Treatment?
Your teeth will continue to move after treatment is complete, although teeth often try to move back into their original positions. Talk to our knowledgeable dentists about using Invisalign retainers to keep your straightened teeth in place after treatment is finished.
