What You Need to Know About Invisalign

For many people, the thought of smiling for photos can be a cause of concern due to teeth that are crooked or gapped. And many feel they must live with a less-than-perfect smile due to the inconvenience and obtrusive nature of traditional braces.

However, with today’s advanced dental treatments, Dr. Milan can help you achieve your best (and healthiest!) smile with Invisalign—no bulky metal braces required.

Interested? Read on for more about what you should know when considering Invisalign.

Improving your smile

Invisalign is an advanced alternative to braces of yesteryear and can straighten your teeth whether they are crowded or crooked, gapped, or even if you have an underbite or overbite. The clear aligners shift teeth over time into the proper position and are replaced about every two weeks as your teeth shift to allow them to continue to move in the desired direction.

Invisalign is discreet as the aligners are clear and removable — so no awkward social eating situations.

The Invisalign process begins with a consultation with Dr. Milan. During this meeting, Dr. Milan will listen to your concerns and goals. He will examine your smile to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. He will also share information on cost and how long your specific treatment will take.

The next step is the molding process. Here, Dr. Milan uses special technology to get a 3D mold to be sent to a lab for your aligners to be custom created. Once ready, Dr. Milan will place the aligners in your mouth, ensuring proper fit.

Now, the straightening process begins! From here, you will visit our office every couple of weeks for new aligners that will help your smile goals to progress. The entire process can take just a few months to two years, depending on the case.
