Untreated orthodontic problems only get worse with age. However, many adults avoid the orthodontic treatment they need because they refuse to wear bulky metal braces. Although braces are the most effective way to straighten teeth, wearing them can be a long and painful process. But old fashioned bracket and wire braces are no longer the only way to effectively straighten teeth. Invisalign clear braces utilize clear and removable aligners, instead of brackets and wires. The Invisalign clear braces are received in stages and are worn for short periods of time to gradually correct misalignment. While braces are usually the best option for complex dental corrections, Invisalign is a fast, effective, and convenient alternative. To discover the Invisalign advantage for yourself, schedule an Invisalign consultation appointment with Williamsburg Dental today. Williamsburg Dental delivers quality care daily to patients of all ages throughout South Lincoln, NE, Hickman, Crete, and the surrounding communities.
The Invisalign Process Step By Step
- Initial Visit: Your first appointment will be a personalized consultation to determine if Invisalign will effectively treat your orthodontic problem. Pictures and X-Rays will be taken and evaluated to make this determination.
- Impressions Visit: If Invisalign will work for you, you will come back to take upper and lower impressions (molds) which will be sent to the Invisalign labs for your custom aligners to be fabricated.
- Aligner and Adjustment Visits: When your new aligners are ready, you will come in to receive your first set. You will wear each aligner for approximately 2-3 weeks, and return to our office about 4-6 weeks to check your progress.
- Final Visit: For your final appointment no more aligners will be delivered. An evaluation of your results will be completed to determine if a case refinement stage will be necessary. If case refinement is necessary, new impressions will be taken and submitted to Invisalign to correct any issues. If your results match initial expectations, impressions will be taken to fabricate retainers, which are worn after any orthodontic treatment is completed to prevent your teeth from shifting out of alignment again.
The sooner you come in for your initial visit the sooner you will be able to enjoy a straight and confident new smile.
