Schedule a consultation with our Invisalign specialist, Dr. Shahnaz Formoli, at Arden Park Dental Care. Find out what Invisalign treatment can do for you.
Digital impressions will first be taken of your teeth. Dr. Formoli will send the details of your teeth to the Invisalign lab along with a written report of your oral examination and a prescription. Using your teeth impression the lab will make a mold of your teeth so that custom-made aligners can be prepared to fit you perfectly.
The images and mold of your teeth will also be used to make a computerized model of your teeth. A special software will use the computer model to predict the course of your Invisalign treatment. You will be sent a copy of this treatment plan. Let Dr. Formoli know if you have any questions or concerns regarding your treatment plan. Modifications can be made to the plan, if required, before the first set of aligners are prepared.
Once your Invisalign aligner is ready, the clear tray will be fitted for you by Dr. Formoli. The aligners are made of very thin plastic and will feel comfortable once you get used to them. Invisalign aligners can be removed while eating and when brushing your teeth. You will be advised to wear the aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours per day.
Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?
All healthy adults can opt for Invisalign treatment after consulting with their orthodontist. Invisalign is not recommended for children whose jaws have not fully developed, conventional braces are recommended in this case. Invisalign might not be recommended for you if the extent of unevenness in your teeth is beyond the scope of treatment.
Overcrowding towards the back of the jaw is not easily corrected with Invisalign aligners, and it might need a different form of treatment. There are no known risks or side effects to Invisalign, but you should consult your dentist if you feel any pain or discomfort during the treatment. If you are suffering from other dental conditions, these might need to be addressed before treatment with Invisalign.
