Insights on Invisalign®
Invisalign® at Healthy Smiles Family Dentistry
Invisalign® is an ideal choice for those who want to achieve a straight smile without having to wear a highly visible device for months. With Invisalign®, it is possible to show off your pearly whites and enjoy the results of realignment more quickly than with traditional braces. Additionally, Invisalign® makes daily tasks like brushing and eating more manageable than wearing traditional braces.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® clear aligners are designed to help straighten your teeth without being noticeable to others. These nearly invisible plastic devices are much less visible than traditional braces, allowing you to get closer to that perfect smile without anyone noticing. Additionally, they can be taken out when needed, so you can brush, floss, and eat without any hassle.
The Invisalign® Process Made Simple
- Consultation: Schedule a consultation with Dr. Wilkinson to discuss your smile goals and determine if Invisalign® is the right fit for you.
- 3D Scanning: We’ll use advanced 3D scanning technology to capture a precise image of your teeth. This allows us to create custom-made aligners that perfectly fit your unique smile.
- Aligner Fabrication: Your 3D scan is sent to a dental lab, where your custom-made aligner series is fabricated.
- Treatment Begins: Once your aligners arrive, Dr. Wilkinson will provide you with detailed instructions on wearing and caring for them. You’ll typically wear each aligner for 20-22 hours per day, switching to the next aligner in the series every two weeks.
- Regular Checkups: We’ll monitor your progress through regular checkups to ensure your treatment stays on track and your smile is transforming beautifully.
