You first Dental Visit
Before beginning your treatment, you and our dentist will choose a plan that suits your needs. As Invisalign is not recommended for everyone, our dentist must first conduct an oral evaluation to see if you are eligible for this treatment.
Structuring the Right Plan for You
Once you are eligible for Invisalign, our dentist will begin customizing your plan. Our dentist will create comprehensive three-dimensional (3D) digital images of your teeth to show your current condition and what you can expect Invisalign to correct. An alternative to using the 3D images are dental impressions. The images from the iTero digital scanning system will give you virtual results by showing you the exact movements your teeth need to make, along with the expected treatment outcomes.
As mentioned earlier, Invisalign are a set of transparent aligners. They are typically made of a BPA-free, SmartTrack material. These aligners can be removed easily, making it extremely convenient to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.
Monitoring Your Progress
Although Invisalign aligners are removable, our dentist will recommend wearing them most of the day and night. Additionally, your Invisalign aligners will be replaced by our dentist throughout the treatment. Our staff will schedule you these appointments as they monitor your progress and make any necessary changes.
Our dentist will provide you with useful instructions and recommendations 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 will reduce possibilities for bacteria to grow. After you have completed your Invisalign treatment, and depending on your specific case, our dentist will most likely recommend wearing a retainer. Wearing a retainer is highly recommended as it will secure the stability of your teeth and their new position.
Credit and Payment
Our office offers several payment options for the Invisalign procedure. You may also apply for CareCredit to see if you qualify for a line of credit that will allow you to obtain flexible credit options.
