Below are some of the steps our dentist will take throughout the treatment:
Your First Dental Visit
The first step is to call us to schedule an appointment, where our dentist will talk to you about different types of braces that are available to correct your bite. Since everyone is not a candidate for Invisalign, our dentist must first conduct an oral evaluation to see if you qualify for this treatment.
Structuring the Right Plan for You
Once determining you are eligible for Invisalign, our dentist will create a customized treatment plan for you. Comprehensive 3D digital images are taken of your teeth, which are used to show your current condition and what you can expect Invisalign to correct.
As mentioned before, Invisalign is a set of transparent aligners. They are made of SmartTrack material, which is BPA-free, so they do not contain the toxins many other plastic materials have. These aligners can be removed easily, making it convenient to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.
Monitoring Your Progress
Although Invisalign aligners are removable, our dentist recommends wearing them for a significant majority of the day. Additionally, your Invisalign aligners will be replaced by our dentist throughout the treatment. Our staff will schedule these regular appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
Our dentist will provide you with instructions on how to clean and properly care for your aligners. After eating, be sure to brush your teeth and clean the aligners before putting them back in. This reduces the opportunity for bacteria to grow. After you completing your Invisalign treatment, our dentist may recommend a retainer. Wearing a retainer is highly recommended as it will secures your teeth in their new position.
