Read below to learn more about how Invisalign works and if Invisalign might be the right choice for you.
Invisalign: What Do I Need to Know?
Invisalign is a system that straightens teeth much in the way that braces do; it applies forces to your teeth, moving them into the desired position. It does this using aligners that are invisible, removable, easy to use, and comfortable. Our patients are consistently happy with the system, both while in treatment and once treatment is complete.
Invisalign: How Does it Work?
The first step would be for you to come to our office for your complimentary consultation. At this appointment we will do pictures and X-rays of your teeth and smile and Dr. Ortega will do a thorough exam to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. Next, we will scan your teeth to map your dental anatomy. This map is then used to generate your treatment plan and to design your smile. This map is sent directly to Invisalign and they make the trays directly from the scan. No impressions are needed!
You will switch your trays every two weeks and we will see your every eight weeks or so to monitor your progress.
Invisalign: Why Should I Want It?
You will enjoy treatment that is incredibly comfortable because the aligners are smooth and do not cause abrasions. You also enjoy the convenience of Invisalign treatment because you do not need to avoid certain foods, you do not need to relearn how to brush and floss, and you do not need to rearrange your schedule to see us on a monthly basis.
