Invisalign® in East Peoria, IL

A bright, healthy smile is linked to greater confidence. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look or your bite feels, you might be considering orthodontic treatment. Braces are no longer the only option when it comes to straightening your teeth. Our experts use Invisalign® in East Peoria to straighten teeth comfortably and discreetly.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a technologically advanced orthodontic system that uses a series of custom-made aligner trays that are worn over your teeth. Treatment begins with a comprehensive plan that maps out each movement of each tooth, and these movements are then recorded and used to make the aligners. Aligners fit over your teeth similar to the way a mouthguard does, and they work like transparent braces by applying pressure at specific points to move teeth.

During Invisalign treatment, you will wear your aligners at all times unless you are eating, drinking, or attending to dental hygiene. The clear aligners are almost invisible , and they can correct most types of mild orthodontic problems. Our dentists can help you decide if Invisalign clear braces are an option for you.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Many patients are pleasantly surprised by how affordable Invisalign can be. The Invisalign cost is usually similar to the cost of conventional braces. However, individual treatment needs can affect your final cost. Complex or lengthy cases can cost more than simple, uncomplicated cases. Invisalign insurance will also affect your cost. Our Invisalign dentists can explain your estimated costs at your consultation. We can help you find a solution that works for you.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

The amount of time you will be in treatment will depend largely on how much your teeth need to move. If you have severely rotated, crowded, gapped, or otherwise improperly positioned teeth, your Invisalign length of treatment could be longer. For most adults, the average Invisalign treatment time is about 12 to 18 months. Treatment time can vary for teens. Once treatment has been successfully completed, you will need to wear Invisalign retainers to keep your smiling looking its best. Schedule a consultation with our experts to get your personalized estimate on your expected length of treatment.

Finding an Invisalign Dentist

Invisalign dentistry is a specialized field. Invisalign is available through a licensed orthodontist or general dentist who has completed training in this field. If you want great results and a positive experience, our experts can help. Our team can use the aligner tray system to correct most types of orthodontic problems and can give you a beautiful smile fast. Contact us to learn more about Invisalign in East Peoria.

Invisalign vs Braces

Is Invisalign as effective as braces? The answer depends on what you need and want from your orthodontic treatment. In most cases, Invisalign is just as effective as conventional braces when it comes to straightening your teeth. The aligner trays are clear and discreet, but they are also smooth and comfortable. You will not need to change your diet or avoid certain activities since you can simply remove your aligners as needed. This also makes Invisalign easier to clean and your teeth easier to maintain during treatment.

However, when it comes to Invisalign vs braces, no system is right for every patient or every smile. Certain complex orthodontic problems can be better addressed by braces. Call our office to schedule your consultation, and our team can help you decide on the best treatment for your needs.

Benefits of Invisalign

While the benefits of braces are well-known, the Invisalign benefits might not be as obvious. In fact, Invisalign in East Peoria offers quite a few additional benefits for your smile, including:

  • Fewer visits to our office for adjustments and evaluations
  • The ability to continue eating all the foods you love
  • The removable nature of the aligners makes dental hygiene a breeze
  • No brackets or wires to poke or irritate your mouth
  • A beautiful smile without any unsightly metal

Can I Get Invisalign?

Invisalign is versatile, easy to use, and popular, but not everyone is an ideal candidate for clear aligners. Those whose jaws are still developing or those with certain complex treatment needs might benefit from conventional braces. Contact our office to find out which orthodontic treatment is recommended for your smile.

Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?

Invisalign insurance is available, and most dental policies that cover orthodontic treatment also cover part or all of the Invisalign cost. This makes affordable Invisalign even more accessible to our patients. We can help you get the most out of your coverage. Your out-of-pocket Invisalign cost with insurance can be covered through a variety of payment options, payment plans, flexible financing solutions, or health savings accounts.

Teeth After Invisalign

After Invisalign, you will be ready to unveil your new smile. However, you will need to wear Invisalign retainers for a period to maintain your results. A retainer prevents orthodontic relapse and prevents the shifting that can occur in response to normal bite pressures throughout life.
