Starting Your Invisalign Journey
From the consultation to the smile you've always wanted, we are here every step of the way. Whether you’re considering treatment for yourself or someone else, knowing more about the process can help you be more confident in your decision.
Because you will be interacting with Orthodontist on a regular basis, we want you feel comfortable with knowing that your smile is in good hands at Village Orthodontics.
This is an important medical and financial decision which is why choosing the right Orthodontist and the right treatment plan is so essential.
We encourage you to come see us for a complimentary consultation. During that consultation, we will discuss your case in full detail to determine if you're a good candidate for Invisalign.
Invisalign addresses so many cases, from simple to more complex. This will also be your opportunity to ask any questions about Invisalign, costs , dental/orthodontic insurance, or any other concerns.
Let's Get Started
Based on your treatment plan, a series of clear aligners are created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won't irritate your cheeks or gums like traditional metal braces often do.
You will simply wear these aligners throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or when you brush and floss your teeth.
You will be instructed to change your aligners approximately every two weeks or as directed by your Orthodontist. To help stay on schedule with your aligners, be sure to download our Mobile App to setup your individual Aligner Timer.
For the best results, we suggest you wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. As you wear each set of aligners you will see your teeth gradually shift into place. The best part, they're invisible!!!
Let's Customize your Treatment Plan
We will take X-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image.
From these images we will be able to create a precise treatment plan, showing the exact movements of each tooth, giving you an approximate time of treatment.
While every case is unique to each patient, treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults. For teens the length of treatments is comparable to that of braces.
