Invisalign straightens teeth using a custom-made series of aligners that are designed for your mouth and your mouth only. This is perfect for the patient who desires a straighter smile and doesn’t want to feel self-conscious about sporting a mouth full of metal. Invisalign addresses many cases, from simple to complex. Dr. Erene Iskander of Amazing Smile Dental Care of Warrenton can determine if you are a good Invisalign candidate. During your consultation, she will evaluate your needs and develop an individualized treatment plan for you.
Before treatment begins, Dr. Erene Iskander will take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. These will then be sent to the Invisalign lab to create a 3D image of your teeth which the doctor will use to map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth. Using the same technology, Dr. Iskander will be able to show you how your teeth will move throughout each stage of treatment.
Once you’ve received your Invisalign trays, simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or brush and your floss your teeth. For best results and a timely outcome, you will need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. To monitor your progress, you will need to schedule occasional checkups every six weeks or so. Because Invisalign looks so discreet, most people won’t notice that you are wearing the aligners.
