Amazing Invisalign Experience

Welcoming and Wonderful Practice

Fantastic Dental Service

    A Beautiful Smile And A Healthy Lifestyle

    While it may seem inconsequential, having properly aligned teeth plays a crucial role in overall health. Even if you don’t experience any immediate discomfort, ensuring your teeth are in their correct position is essential for optimal function and longevity, ensuring a lifetime of oral health.

    It is astonishing that nearly 9 out of 10 people experience some level of tooth crowding or misalignment, which can lead to various dental complications, including chipped teeth or tooth loss, food impaction between teeth, challenges in flossing and cleaning, heightened risk of cavities, and an increased likelihood of gum disease. Furthermore, gum disease can contribute to systemic health issues such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and an elevated risk of stroke. If you are dealing with any of these conditions, we recommend scheduling an appointment at our office to have your oral health evaluated and addressed.

     

    When Is A Good Time To Start?

    Whether you have been contemplating straightening your teeth for a while or have recently received a recommendation from your dentist, delaying the process only prolongs your dissatisfaction and increases the risk of dental problems. It’s important to remember that teeth continue to shift, and waiting will result in even greater misalignment in the coming years. The sooner you begin treatment, the easier, faster, and more cost-effective it will be to straighten your teeth before they become severely misaligned.

    Rest assured, affordable treatment options are available. The entire cost of treatment is not required on the day you start. Our office is dedicated to providing you with flexible payment options that the majority of our patients utilize, and we would be delighted to discuss these options with you.

    Custom Treatment Plan

    We begin the process with digital scans of your teeth, allowing us to create a customized treatment plan using Invisalign’s advanced software. This enables us to accurately predict and show you the expected progress and final result of your treatment. Your custom aligners are then created using Invisalign’s cutting-edge printing technology for a precise and comfortable fit.

    The First Aligners

    After your aligners arrive, it may be necessary to use special fasteners, which are temporarily bonded to your teeth. These fasteners allow you to securely clip in your aligners. Rest assured, these fasteners are mostly invisible and can be easily removed at the end of your treatment.

    Follow-Up Appointments

    You receive a new set of clear aligners to wear approximately every two weeks. With each aligner change, your teeth will gradually shift into their proper position until they reach their final and correct alignment. Throughout the process, we will schedule regular visits to our office, typically every 1-2 months, to monitor your progress and ensure that the treatment is progressing as planned. These visits are essential for optimizing your results and ensuring the success of your Invisalign treatment.
