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 for everyone, we will determine if you qualify for this treatment.
Building the Right Plan for You
Once you are found eligible for Invisalign, our dentist will begin customizing a fitting for you. We will create comprehensive 3D digital images to show you your problem areas and discuss how they will be rectified through the treatment. An alternative to using the 3D images is impressions. However, if you opt for 3D dental imaging, our iTero digital scanning system will provide virtual results by showing you the exact movements your teeth need to make along with 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 aligners are typically made of BPA-free, SmartTrack material, meaning the aligners do not contain the toxins many plastic components transmit. These aligners can be removed easily, making them stress-free to clean and to reinsert back into your teeth.
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.
Follow Our Dentist’s Recommendations
Our dentist will provide you with useful directions on how to clean and take proper care of your aligners. After eating, be sure to brush your teeth, along with the aligners, before inserting them. This step will reduce the risk of bacteria growth. 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 different payment plans for the Invisalign procedure. Ask us about these options today and how you could be eligible to apply and be approved in our CareCredit program.
