Invisalign® in Peoria, IL

Braces were once the only option for straightening teeth, but today, those with crooked or misaligned teeth might have another choice: Invisalign. Invisalign® in Peoria offers a discreet, comfortable way to straighten teeth without any metal or uncomfortable brackets.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear braces use a series of custom-fit aligner trays, which are worn over the teeth much like a mouthguard or retainer. These aligners apply pressure much like braces, guiding teeth into their proper position. Our Invisalign dentists can use the clear aligner system to address many different mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Invisalign transparent braces are worn at all times except during meals or when you are attending to dental hygiene. Every two weeks you will switch to the next aligner in the series.

What is the Invisalign Cost?

The Invisalign treatment cost is often comparable to the cost of conventional braces. The final cost can vary based on your individual treatment needs and the complexity of your case. Dental insurance that offers orthodontic coverage also frequently includes Invisalign insurance in that coverage, and flexible interest financing and payment options are available for qualified patients. We can help you locate the most cost-effective solutions for your budget. Call our office for details.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

The length of Invisalign treatment can vary based on individual needs. The length of your Invisalign treatment will be based on the degree to which your teeth need to be rotated, straightened or moved. At the beginning of your treatment, our Invisalign dentists will create a treatment plan to move your teeth into their balanced, properly spaced positions.

The average treatment lasts between 12 and 18 months. Your time in Invisalign aligners may be shorter or longer than this depending on your needs. After active treatment is finished, you will need to wear Invisalign retainers to keep your teeth in their proper positions.

Finding an Invisalign Dentist

A general dentist or orthodontic specialist who has completed training in Invisalign dentistry can use Invisalign aligners to correct your smile. Our Invisalign dentists have extensive experience in treating a variety of alignment and malocclusion problems, and we can help you decide if Invisalign in Peoria is right for you. If you want to experience a straighter, healthier smile, call us to schedule your consultation.

Invisalign vs Braces

Is Invisalign as effective as braces? This is a big concern for many of our patients. While braces have been the standard in orthodontic treatment for many years, Invisalign offers an aesthetic alternative to those with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. We can use Invisalign in Peoria to treat crowding, spacing and overlapping problems, crooked teeth, overbites, underbites and crossbites. Braces are a good option for more complex orthodontic problems. Our team can help you compare Invisalign vs braces and decide which option best meets your needs.

Invisalign Benefits

When it comes to straightening your teeth, Invisalign offers many of the same benefits of braces, but the similarities end there. The benefits of Invisalign aligners include:

  • Comfort: the aligners are made of smooth thermoplastic that will not irritate your mouth the way metal wires and brackets can.
  • Convenience: you will only need to visit our office about every four to six weeks.
  • Diet: there is no need to avoid any foods or drinks because you can remove your aligners during mealtimes.
  • Simplicity: because the trays can be removed, you will not have to maneuver a toothbrush or floss around any bulky orthodontic appliances.
  • Aesthetics: the invisible nature of clear aligners means that you can smile with confidence throughout your treatment.

Candidates for Invisalign

The best way to answer the question, “Can I get Invisalign?” is by scheduling a consultation with one of our Invisalign dentists. Ideal candidates are those who are adults or teens with mild or moderate crowding, spacing or bite problems.

Insurance for Invisalign

If your insurance plan covers orthodontic treatment, it will also likely cover Invisalign. The Invisalign cost with insurance can vary based on your overall costs. Your out-of-pocket Invisalign cost will be significantly lower with Invisalign covered by insurance, and you can use a health savings account, flexible savings account, or other financing solutions to pay for costs that are not covered by your insurance.

Your Teeth after Invisalign

After treatment is complete, you will need to wear Invisalign retainers to keep your teeth in position. Orthodontic treatment uses carefully applied forces to move teeth. As they move, the bone and periodontal ligaments in your jaw adapt to accommodate them. New bone tissue is laid down in the space the teeth occupied. The process can take time, so wearing your retainers as instructed is critical to maintaining your results. They will provide your teeth with the stability and support they need to withstand bite pressures.
