Invisalign is one of the most popular alignment treatments at Neibauer Dental Care. If you're interested in this treatment, find out what you can expect from the process at our Waldorf, Maryland, office, below.
You First Dental Visit
Before beginning your treatment, you and our dentist together will choose a plan that properly suits your needs. As Invisalign is not recommended for everyone, our dentist must first conduct an oral evaluation to see if you are eligible for this treatment.
Structuring the Right Plan for You
If you're a good fit for this alignment method, our dentist will begin customizing a plan for you. We will create comprehensive 3D digital images of your teeth to show your current condition and what you can expect Invisalign to correct. An alternative to using the 3D images are dental impressions. However, if you opt for 3D imaging, our iTero digital scanning system will provide virtual results by showing you the exact movements your teeth need to make along with the expected treatment outcome.
As mentioned earlier, Invisalign consists of a set of transparent aligners. They are typically made of a BPA-free, SmartTrack material, meaning the aligners do not contain the toxins many plastic components carry. These aligners can be removed easily, making it extremely convenient to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.
Monitoring Your Progress
Although Invisalign aligners are removable, our dentist will recommend wearing them most of day and night. Additionally, your Invisalign aligners will be replaced by our dentist throughout the treatment. Our staff will schedule you these appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary changes.
Our dentist will provide you with useful instructions and recommendations on how to clean and take proper care of your aligners. After eating, be sure to brush your teeth, along with the aligners, before inserting them. This will reduce the possibility for bacteria to grow. After you have completed your Invisalign treatment, our dentist will most likely recommend wearing a retainer to secure the stability of your teeth and their new position.
Credit and Payment
Our office offers several credit options for the Invisalign procedure, including CareCredit. You may apply for CareCredit and see if you qualify for a line of credit that will allow you to obtain flexible payment options.
