Invisalign® in Munster, IN

Invisalign® in Munster is an increasingly popular orthodontic treatment that offers you an alternative to metal braces. Our Invisalign experts can use Invisalign to straighten your teeth comfortably and conveniently.

What are Invisalign Clear Braces?

If you have ever wondered how to straighten teeth without using unsightly metal appliances, you might be a candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. At the beginning of treatment, we take a series of images and records that are used to create a virtual model of your teeth. The position of each tooth in the model is moved and adjusted until your bite is properly balanced and perfectly aligned.

The movements are recorded and used when your aligner trays are created. The aligners apply just the right amount of pressure needed to gently move your teeth. The smooth thermoplastic used to make the aligners will not irritate your gums or cheeks. Because each aligner is clear, the only thing visible during treatment will be your smile.

How Much Do Invisalign Braces Cost?

The Invisalign cost might be more affordable than you imagined. In many cases, clear aligners are comparable in price to traditional braces. It can be made even more affordable by Invisalign insurance, which covers part of the cost of the treatment and reduces your out-of-pocket Invisalign cost. Our office also offers a variety of payment plans and flexible interest financing. Contact us to find out more.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

The Invisalign treatment time can vary according to your needs. The complexity of your care, the degree of rotation, the number of aligners you will need, and other individual factors will play a role in the overall treatment time. The average adult typically undergoes Invisalign treatment for 12 to 18 months. Teens’ treatment times are more variable.

During treatment, you will change your aligners about every two weeks. This keeps the movement of your teeth progressing, so you will have fewer visits to our office. Once active treatment is finished, you will wear Invisalign retainers to keep your teeth in their new position.

Invisalign Dentists

Invisalign dentistry requires a unique set of skills. Our dentists have extensive experience using Invisalign trays to treat a wide range of orthodontic problems, including crowding, gapping, and malocclusions. If you are interested in getting the best smile possible from clear aligners, our team is a great place to start and end your search.

Invisalign vs Braces

When comparing Invisalign vs braces, there are several things to consider, including the extent of your orthodontic problems, aesthetics, and comfort. There is no right choice for every patient, but our Invisalign dentists can help you decide if Invisalign in Munster is right for you.

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and comfortable to wear. You will have no dietary restrictions because you can simply remove your aligners when it is time to eat. You can also remove your aligners to brush and floss, so dental hygiene is as easy as always. Every four to six weeks, you will need to visit our office to ensure you are progressing as expected and to pick up new aligners as necessary.

Braces cannot be removed: because they are bonded to your teeth, patients must adapt their diets, lifestyles, and dental hygiene routines to accommodate their treatment. Office visits must be fairly frequent to maintain the proper pressure on teeth and to adjust the braces as needed. However, braces can also make more complex movements and are better for patients with more severe or complicated orthodontic needs.

Benefits of Invisalign

The Invisalign extensive benefits include:

  • Eating your favorite foods without having to worry about your braces
  • Enjoying a beautiful smile even before your treatment is complete
  • Having more time to yourself since you will need fewer visits to our office
  • Feeling comfortable without any wires or brackets to poke or irritate your mouth
  • Cleaning your teeth easily

Can I Get Invisalign?

Invisalign is not an ideal choice for everyone, but it can be an excellent solution for those with mild-to-moderate orthodontic problems. Invisalign is excellent for many teens and adults, but might not be a good option for children whose mouths are still developing. You must also be willing and able to comply with the treatment requirements. Our experts can help you decide if Invisalign is right for you.

Is Invisalign Covered by Insurance?

Invisalign is considered a form of orthodontic treatment, so if your dental insurance covers orthodontia, it is also likely to cover Invisalign. Invisalign insurance might cover part or all of the cost of your treatment. Many patients do still have deductibles, copayments or coinsurance, so it is important that you check the details of your plan to determine your level of coverage. Our team also offers a variety of payment options and flexible financing, which can help cover your out-of-pocket Invisalign cost.

After Invisalign

Once your treatment is complete, you will be ready to show off that new smile. With Invisalign retainers, you can continue smiling with confidence and without any unsightly metal interfering with your appearance. The retainers look much like the aligners and fit close to your teeth to keep them in their proper positions.

If you are ready for a new look and a healthy new smile, contact our office to schedule your consultation with our dentists.
