Your First Dental Visit
Before beginning your procedure, you and our dentist together will choose a plan that suits your dental needs. Because Invisalign not 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
In our dentist determines that you are eligible for Invisalign, they will begin customizing a plan for you. Our dentist will create comprehensive 3D digital images of your teeth to show your current condition and how you can expect Invisalign to align your teeth. 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 outcome.
As mentioned earlier, Invisalign is a set of transparent aligners. They are typically made of a BPA-free, SmartTrack material, meaning the aligners do not contain any toxins that many plastic components carry. 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 that you wear them for the majority of the day and night. Additionally, your Invisalign aligners will be replaced by our dentist throughout the treatment. Our staff will schedule these appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary changes to the aligners.
Invisalign Care and Aftercare
Our dentist will give you instructions 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 potential bacteria growth. 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 keep your teeth secure in their new, corrected positions.
