Come See Us For Your Consultation! No Referral Necessary!
A smile is one of the first things we notice about a person; it’s been called the “mirror to the soul”. It’s hard to flaunt your smile when you’re not confident about your teeth. With Invisalign aligners , you can achieve a straight and healthy smile.
Maybe you’ve seen an Invisalign advertisement or are curious about the treatment. If orthodontic treatment is of interest to you, there are a few steps involved first. Typically here’s how it would work:
See an Orthodontist
When considering orthodontic treatment like Invisalign or braces, you should consult with a certified orthodontist. Orthodontists typically spend three extra years after dental school in specializing on tooth movement and bite correction methods.
Talk with your Orthodontist
Set an consultation appointment with your chosen orthodontist. Let him/her assess and evaluate your teeth. Discuss all your concerns and tell him/her your smile goals. The orthodontist will take photographs of your smile and teeth and will give you an idea of what your options are, so you’ll know what to expect from your treatment. He/she will discuss estimated duration of treatment and estimated cost.
Have your pre-treatment diagnostic records taken, and discuss your plan
Once you have decided to proceed with treatment , bite registration, dental impressions, dental x-rays and a complete diagnostic examination will be performed to permit an in-depth analysis of your orthodontic “issues” and to facilitate the creation of a customized treatment plan. The plan will be discussed with you in detail so you have a very clear idea of what the goals are, as well as the treatment options and the risks of each.
Have your iTero scan
A very fast but very accurate high-precision digital scan of your teeth comes next, to permit communication of your orthodontist with Invisalign so that he/she can relay the treatment plan that was created and translate it into the fabrication of custom made aligners. In a few weeks you can have your first trays and you can be on your way to the smile you always wanted!
