Your Preferred Provider For Invisalign Wilsonville, Sherwood, Tillamook and Woodstock
Invisalign utilizes an advanced approach to straightening teeth through the use of a custom-designed series of aligners created specifically for each individual patient. Made from smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic, aligner trays are worn over the front of your teeth. Just as with the wires used in traditional braces, wearing the aligners will gradually shift your teeth into the desired position planned by Dr. Seth during your initial orthodontic consultation. With no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten, you simply pop in a new set of aligners once roughly every two weeks until you have completed your treatment plan. The best part about Invisalign is that most people will never know you’re receiving orthodontic treatment. That’s why many patients simply refer to Invisalign as “clear braces.”
Your Initial Consultation
To begin your Invisalign treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Seth, a Preferred Invisalign Wilsonville, Woodstock and Sherwood, Oregon Provider. During your initial consultation, Dr. Seth will discuss you or your child’s orthodontic needs to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign treatments now have the ability to address a wide range of orthodontic issues, from simple teeth straightening to bite correction. However, Invisalign may not be suitable for patients with severe orthodontic needs.
As part of your individualized Invisalign plan, Dr. Seth will make an impression of your teeth, which is then used to create a digital 3-D image. Using this image, Dr. Seth will create a precise orthodontic plan that will plot out your teeth’s movements during treatment, and tell you approximately how long your treatment will last. Dr. Seth can even show you a virtual demonstration of how your teeth will shift during each stage of the treatment.
Custom-made Aligners Are Created Specifically For You!
Based on your individual treatment requirements, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are then created specifically for you. These aligners are created using a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t cause irritation to your gums, cheek and tongue like is typical of traditional metal braces. Just wear your custom aligners during the day, removing them only when you eat and brush and floss your teeth. As you switch between each new set of aligners, your teeth with gradually and gently begin shifting into place.
Wear A New Aligner Every Two Weeks
Roughly every two weeks, you’ll receive a new custom aligner to wear as you progress through the treatment process. To monitor your progress, you’ll need to schedule regular checkups with Dr. Senestraro, roughly one appointment every six weeks or as needed. To ensure the best results possible in the shortest amount of time, you need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, for the entire length of the treatment process. During every stage of your treatment, you’ll be able to see firsthand just how much closer you’re getting to finally achieving the smile you’ve always wanted!
Get Ready To Celebrate
Get ready to celebrate at the end of your Invisalign treatment process. Once you see the remarkable improvement to your smile Invisalign can make, you’ll be ready to smile more than ever.
Once you complete treatment, don’t forget to protect that beautiful new smile. Dr. Senestraro will provide a recommendation on whether you’ll need to wear a retainer following treatment to help keep your new and improved smile. Wearing a retainer for a short period following treatment will prevent your teeth from shifting as they slowly begin to permanently adjust to their new position.
