YOUR GO-TO DENTAL CLINIC FOR INVISALIGN® IN STITTSVILLE
Many adults would like straight teeth but do not want to show braces. Invisalign® is an excellent alternative for these patients. Invisalign® is a custom made appliance made of medical-grade, FDA approved plastic designed to straighten your teeth progressively. These aligners are a clear, effective and comfortable way of moving your teeth. Each tray is slightly different from the one before it, moving your teeth closer and closer to the desired result. Invisalign® is an excellent appliance choice for those individuals with higher aesthetic demands. Being removable and clear, they are comfortable and easy to manage.
HOW INVISALIGN® WORKS?
Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.
Only Invisalign® clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.
From consultation to a confident new smile, you’ll know what to expect every step of the way. Get started today by booking an appointment with us.
Your First Consultation
Choosing Invisalign® treatment is an important dental and financial decision, so you must find the right treatment for you to feel most comfortable with.
At your initial consultation, your doctor will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign® treatment is right for you.
Your Custom Treatment Plan
Your doctor will use a scanner such as the iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. (Some doctors will take physical impressions.)
Then your doctor will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile with a 3D virtual computer projection of the actual movements that will occur. You will get to see a video of the future movements of your teeth.
Your Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Your custom-made aligners will be made of our proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
Wear your Invisalign® clear aligners a minimum of 22 hours a day for the best results, taking them out to eat, to brush and floss.
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. Your doctor may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every 1-2 weeks and schedule check-ups every six weeks or so.
At every stage, you’ll be able to see your progress and imagine how far your new smile will take you.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR NEW SMILE
When your treatment is complete, ask us about a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.
