Call Us for an Appointment
We will be happy to schedule you an appointment with our dentist if Invisalign interests you. On your first visit, our dentist will address your needs and conduct an oral evaluation. Since Invisalign is not suggested for everyone, we need to first determine if this treatment is a good fit for you.
Developing a Strategy
Once you are found eligible for Invisalign, our dentist will begin customizing a fitting. This process involves creating comprehensive 3D digital images to highlight your problem areas. If you prefer more traditional techniques, you can also opt for standard impressions. However, if you choose 3D dental imaging, our iTero digital scanning system will provide you with virtual results that predict the exact movements your teeth need to make as well as a preview of the outcome.
About the Aligners
Invisalign is not only convenient for its desirable transparent appearance, but also because it is safe to use. The custom-made devices are made of a BPA-free, SmartTrack material, meaning the aligners do not contain the toxins many plastic components transmit. They can also be removed easily, which makes clean-up a breeze.
Monitor Your Treatment
Although Invisalign aligners are removable, our dentist will recommend wearing them most of the day and night. Additionally, your Invisalign aligners could be replaced by our dentist weekly or twice per month, depending on your specific case. Keep in mind that the results of Invisalign will vary and will mostly depend on your use of the aligners. The treatment could be delayed if you constantly remove them or forget to reinsert them. For optimal results, it’s essential that you follow our dentist’s recommendations and instructions on the proper use of Invisalign.
Our dentist will provide you with guidelines on how to clean and care for your aligners. After eating, be sure to brush your teeth, along with the aligners, before inserting them. This will reduce the chance of bacteria growth occurring. After you have completed your Invisalign treatment, our dentist will most likely recommend wearing a retainer as it will secure the stability of your teeth in their new position.
For your convenience, our office offers you several payment plans for the Invisalign procedure. Ask us about these options today, including our Care Credit program.
