Why Choose Invisalign?
Continue reading if Invisalign is an attractive option for you. We have gathered information on this excellent treatment to provide you with an overview of what you can expect when choosing Invisalign.
Your initial consult
Before beginning your procedure, you and our dentist together will choose a plan that adequately suits your needs. As Invisalign is not for everyone, our dentist must first conduct an oral evaluation to see if you are eligible for this treatment.
Choosing the right plan
In the case you are found qualified for Invisalign, our dentist will begin customizing a plan for you. Our dentist will create comprehensive 3-D digital images of your teeth to show your current condition and what you can expect Invisalign to correct. Another alternative to using the 3-D 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 outcome.
The aligners themselves
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 the toxins many plastic components carry. These aligners can be removed easily, making it extremely convenient to brush and floss your teeth as you usually would.
Observing 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 these appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary changes.
The procedures themselves
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.
How to pay
Our office offers several credit options for the Invisalign procedure. You may also apply for Care Credit and see if you qualify for a line of credit that will allow you to obtain flexible payment options.
