Proper alignment can stop chipping and wearing of teeth, prevent enamel erosion and damage to the root of your tooth, enhance the health of your gums and oral hygiene, and improve confidence in your smile. Addressing the alignment of your teeth also has the benefit of creating a harmonious relationship between the teeth, jaw, and facial muscles for an overall healthier and more comfortable bite.

If you have poorly aligned teeth or certain bite issues (over-, under-, or crossbite), Invisalign from our doctors can improve your smile with minimal interruption to your daily activities—and without others even noticing you are undergoing treatment.

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic treatment designed to help patients correct bite issues and straighten their teeth quickly and discreetly. Unlike traditional metal braces that utilize conspicuous brackets and wires, Invisalign works by using a series of clear, removable trays that are custom-made to apply a gentle degree of force to particular teeth at optimal times throughout treatment, resulting in gradual straightening with increased comfort and convenience.

Innovative Dental is an Invisalign VIP Platinum Plus Provider, designated by Invisalign due to the high level of experience, case volume, and skills of Dr. Grant Olson. Innovative Dental is a top provider of Invisalign in Springfield, MO and is a VIP Platinum Plus Provider designated by Invisalign.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign® Over Traditional Braces?

The Invisalign clear aligner system offers numerous benefits for qualified patients. Most notably, Invisalign trays are made of soft, flexible plastic with a customized design that fits more comfortably in the mouth, as opposed to the conventional metal brackets and wires associated with braces. The discrete, clear appearance of Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable when the aligners are worn, allowing for an incredibly discreet treatment—which is especially popular amongst adults seeking straighter teeth.

Additionally, most patients agree the convenience of being able to easily remove the Invisalign trays during meals is an advantage over metal braces, which can be more susceptible to catching food particles and harder to clean properly in the small or difficult to reach spaces of the mouth. Furthermore, Invisalign treatment is often faster than traditional braces and requires less office visits—especially Innovative Dental’s Accelerated Invisalign approach!

What Can You Expect During the Invisalign® Treatment Process?

Innovative Dental has been an answer to prayer! My son 16, has been bullied many years due to his over bite & gaps in his teeth. When Dr. Olson told us he would be able to straighten his teeth in a matter of months with accelerated Invisalign, I couldn’t believe it!
And when I saw the before & after pictures of what his teeth will look like, I started to cry. Dr. Olson & staff are Awesome & so caring. They treat you as one of their family.
Thank you so much Innovative Dental! We will definitely tell everyone about this Amazing practice! God Bless You!

The process begins with a complimentary Invisalign consultation, where you will have complimentary digital x-rays, intraoral photos, and a digital impression taken with our iTero scanner. Then your dentist and a treatment coordinator will talk with you about the process, show you examples of aligner trays, and answer any questions you may have about Invisalign.

Based on the detailed images of your teeth, alignment, and bite, Innovative Dental will submit a prescription, and Invisalign will create customized aligners. Each set of aligners is slightly modified from the one before it, and the trays should be worn for approximately 20–22 hours per day—ideally only being removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. You should progress to a new set of aligners each week, allowing for a gradual shift of the teeth into a straighter position.

At the completion of your treatment, you will receive your included whitening kit, have the opportunity to have up to 6 of your teeth cosmetically bonded and contoured, and receive your retainers to help keep your teeth in a straight position.

How Do I Care For My Invisalign® Aligners?

Caring for Invisalign aligners is a simple process of brushing and rinsing the trays with lukewarm water. It is recommended to use gentle strokes with a toothbrush and avoid hot water, as the temperature may risk warping the customized shape. For optimal cleaning, follow the aforementioned steps after eating (or drinking darker pigmented beverages) and be sure to brush your teeth as well before reinserting the aligners to ensure safe and thorough hygiene practice. If your aligners do become stained or discolored, your dentist can offer specific advice for a deeper clean.

Does Invisalign® Hurt?

When you first begin wearing each Invisalign aligner—whether it’s the initial tray or subsequent aligners in your set—you may feel a bit of “pressure,” which is actually an indication that the teeth are being moved into proper position as planned. While the majority of patients do not describe this pressure as painful, over-the-counter medicine is usually able to provide adequate relief in the event any soreness or discomfort is experienced. Unlike some orthodontic systems that can nick or scrape the soft tissues of the mouth, the smooth design of Invisalign aligners also protects against this potentially irritating—or even painful—occurrence. All things considered, Invisalign is largely regarded as far more comfortable than many other orthodontic techniques.

How Long Does Invisalign® Take?

With Accelerated Invisalign, however, total treatment time can often be reduced by up to 50%. For most patients, it takes approximately one year to achieve optimal results.

Will I Need a Retainer After Invisalign®?

Yes, it is typically recommended to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment in order to preserve the new positioning of your teeth. Dr. Olson will be able to provide a personalized maintenance plan for wearing the retainer, which is necessary to prevent teeth from shifting out of proper alignment. In many cases, patients will eventually only need to wear the retainer at night while sleeping.

What Does Invisalign® Cost?

The exact cost of Invisalign will depend on the complexity of your case and whether or not your dental healthcare plan provides any insurance coverage. At Innovative Dental, the total price for Invisalign treatment includes digital impressions, a take-home teeth whitening kit, tooth recontouring (up to 6 teeth), and a set of retainers—many of which are additional expenses at other practices.

To make Invisalign as affordable as possible, we offer dental financing options through Lending Club and CareCredit. Each of these trusted lenders provides various payment plan options designed to fit virtually any budget, and the application process is simple and fast. If desired, a member of our team would be happy to help you explore your options at the time of your visit.
