We have blogged about Invisalign before, but this popular procedure is worth re-buzzing about …especially because our New Westminster Skytrain Station Sedation and General Dentistry office is offering FREE consultations!
Traditional braces can be both cumbersome as well as unnecessary for those who require a fairly straightforward teeth-straightening process. Whether you have a busy professional lifestyle, or have a youth who is hesitant to have braces put on due to aesthetic reasons, Invisalign could be the solution.
Invisalign has the ability to correct your smile in a manner that is gradual and manageable for teens and adults alike, and is a fairly simple process start-to-finish.
Whether your need is to address mild alignment issues, or you have more complex alignment concerns – determining this is step #1.
Not all individuals are a good candidate for Invisalign, but one of our dental professionals will assess that in your initial appointment. This appointment also creates an opportunity to discuss not only your candidacy, but also the cost involved, whether or not your insurance coverage includes this type of process, and any additional concerns you might have regarding Invisalign.
If your dentist conclude that Invisalign is the option you should pursue, having x-rays taken will be the next step, followed by creating impressions of your teeth. From there, the Invisalign professionals create a digital 3-D image for you in order to see the finished result.
Once your dental professional receives that image, they can begin your treatment plan and assess how your teeth will move and adjust, as well as offer you a virtual representation of how your teeth should move with each stage.
Multiple sets of Invisalign aligners are created specifically for you, and you will wear these every day, removing them only you eat or to brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually begin to shift into place.
Normally you retainers are changed every 2 weeks, and your dentists will conduct a checkup to chart your progress every 6 weeks or so. If you are consistent at keeping your aligners in place 20 to 22 hours per day, your treatment should only take around a year.
At DentistsRUs, we know that a smiling patient makes for a happy dentist …and we are proud to offer our online directory to ease the process of locating a dental professional that provides Invisalign.
