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.
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 Diamond 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 Diamond Provider designated by Invisalign in the area.

The Accelerated Invisalign system offers several benefits to our patients that many other offices do not provide, including:
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 CEREC® scanner. Then your dentist and our Invisalign Coordinator will talk with you about the process, show you examples of aligner trays and accelerating devices, 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.
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.
At Innovative Dental, we offer a couple of options that can be good alternatives to Invisalign® for appropriate candidates. The first technique is traditional orthodontics, which is available for young children, teens, and even adults. Depending on your unique needs—or the needs of your child—this can include two-phase therapy, braces with brackets and wires, and/or various orthodontic appliances designed to properly align the teeth for a straight smile and optimal oral wellness. In the event you desire a more discreet appearance during treatment, we may even be able to utilize porcelain or NeoLucent brackets that are far more inconspicuous than normal metal braces.
The second potential alternative to Invisalign is porcelain veneers. Sometimes described as “instant orthodontics,” porcelain veneers can conceal minor gaps and tooth misalignments to create the appearance of a straight, beautiful smile. Since this is not a true orthodontic solution, however, overbites, underbites, and other bite alignment issues will remain unresolved, if present. As a result, porcelain veneers are generally only recommended as an alternative if the concerns being treated are purely cosmetic in nature.
