Common Problems our Invisible Braces Address
Crowding: Teeth that are too close together can become crooked causing discomfort, difficulty cleaning and can lead to other dental problems.
Spacing: Gaps between teeth are generally undesirable cosmetically, but can also increase the chance of tooth decay.
Crossbite: When lower and upper teeth are not aligned properly it can cause difficulty chewing and lead to jaw and other dental problems.
Overbite: Aside from generally being a cosmetic concern, overbites can also cause eating problems and dental issues.
YOUR CUSTOM TREATMENT PLAN
- Our dentist will take impressions, photos, and x-rays which he will send to the Invisible Braces lab with a precise prescription for your custom aligners. The will use your records to create exact 3D models of your teeth and maps out a complete treatment plan of gradual adjustment that takes your teeth from where they are currently to where you and the dentist want them to end up.
- Once completed, you and our dentist will be able to preview the projected results of your treatment in your “treatment set-up,” a computer representation of your teeth before and after treatment.
- When you and our dentist are satisfied with the projected results shown in your treatment set-up, the manufacturing process begins. Using the latest digital mapping and molding technology, Invisible Braces lab creates your custom aligners with computer precision.
- You will wear your aligners all the time, except while eating and drinking or during daily tooth care, such as brushing and flossing. Your aligners are so clear they are barely noticeable so they won’t have an impact on your day to day life. Aligner by aligner, you’ll be able to see the difference as your teeth slowly adjust and align to your target smile.
- You will visit us periodically for checkups to see how you’re progressing until you eventually have the straight smile you’ve always wanted.
