Why is Invisalign a Great Choice?
Invisalign's technology allows you to straighten your teeth with a series of clear, customized, removable trays. They are virtually invisible, which makes them a great option for people who are in the public eye. And they are extremely effective! Invisalign can effectively treat a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, crossbites, overbites and underbites.
The Benefits of Clear Braces:
- Straightens your teeth without the need for braces
- Lets you remove the device when you want
- Allows you to eat whatever foods you enjoy
- Allows you to brush and floss your teeth normally
- Consists of smooth plastic that is more comfortable to
- the gums than metal braces
How Does it Work?
Invisalign works using the same principles of traditional metal braces. However, our dentist uses models of your teeth and create a digital progression of the tooth movements in a computer, and the custom clear trays are fabricated off this computer design. There are no wires or metal pieces, so it is much more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. The entire series of trays is made at once, and each one progressively moves your teeth closer to the desired position. Each tray is worn for approximately 2 weeks. The trays are instructed to be worn FULL-TIME, meaning as close to 24 hours a day as possible. They can be taken out to eat and brush your teeth, and then should be placed back in the mouth.
The Cost of Invisalign
Invisalign may cost anywhere from $4,000 to $6,000 for patients in Peoria, IL area. The cost will depend on the office, the experience of the doctor, and the complexity of the case. Here at East Peoria Dental Group, we offer a complimentary no-obligation consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you. By examining your case, we are better able to let you know your costs to have Invisalign treatment.
