If you long for a straighter smile but are reluctant to saddle yourself with traditional braces, Invisalign could be the solution for you. Getting started with this treatment option is as easy as making a call to schedule a consultation with a dentist who provides Invisalign.
At this initial consultation, you can learn about all of the benefits of Invisalign, and your dentist will evaluate your case to see if Invisalign can help you achieve your treatment goals.
Your Invisalign Consultation: What To Expect
The Invisalign consultation gives you an opportunity to get more information about this treatment option, and your provider will gather all of the information necessary to develop your Invisalign treatment plan.
At this appointment, your provider may take:
- Overview of oral health and medical history
All of this data can help to inform your Invisalign treatment plan and will be used to design your customized Invisalign trays. Additionally, this information will serve as a baseline to which your treatment progress can be compared.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign is grounded in the same principles that drive traditional orthodontic treatment. Forces are applied to the teeth in order to move them into the correct positions. However, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic removable trays to achieve this movement rather than braces.
The patient wears the Invisalign trays for a specified amount of time, typically at least 22 hours a day, and changes to a new tray according to the schedule provided. Patients usually swap out their trays every two weeks or so.
The Patient’s Important Role
In order to attain the desired results in the anticipated timeframe, patients must be conscientious about following their provider’s instructions. Be sure to wear and use the trays exactly as directed.
In exchange for your diligence about following the prescribed schedules, you’ll gain the following benefits from Invisalign treatment:
- Convenience – fewer office visits means less disruption to your schedule
- Comfort – no sharp bracket edges or rogue wires will poke at your sensitive soft oral tissues
- Improved appearance – Invisalign trays are barely noticeable when you’re undergoing treatment
- Minimal impact on your daily routines – you can eat and practice your oral hygiene habits normally
