Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth.
How does Invisalign work?
Wearing aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighter. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even notice you’re straightening your teeth.
Invisalign costs depend on the level of treatment your require. Please visit us to learn more about Invisalign, and book a consultation to see if you are a candidate.
Treatment length also depends on the level of work your teeth need, and your desired position. We ask that you visit the dentist once every 6 weeks so your dentist can monitor your progress.
A COE is like a physical for your head and neck. It is a thorough evaluation and documentation of your teeth, gums, jaw bones, lymph nodes, and jaw joints. It is the foundation of the routine check-up. Your course of treatment is determined as a result of this exam.
A recare is exam is the check-up which determines any changes since the previous COE.
Digital x-rays show areas not visible to the eye.
A COE is recommended every 3-5 years depending on your history. Your dentist will determine what is right for you.
Yes, it is possible to have your teeth cleaned without having a check-up, but it is recommended that you see the dentist for a check-up every 6-9 months to catch problems early.
