What Can Invisalign Do For You?
Before Dr. Salami can provide you with this exciting orthodontic treatment, you must be evaluated. Only a thorough examination will determine if you are a good fit for Invisalign teeth straightening.
Invisalign is ideal for those who have worn braces before and want to get their teeth back into a more acceptable position.
Invisalign clear aligners can also help those with minor teeth imperfections, such as crowding, spacing, slight overbite, crossbite, or underbite.
Unfortunately, if you have severe crowding, a significant cross, under, or overbite, Invisalign may not be the proper treatment for you.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
The answer to the question of treatment longevity is different, as few Invisalign treatment plans are ever the same.
However, in most cases, Invisalign wearers see vast improvements to their smile within 12 to 18 months. Your case may take longer or shorter depending on several factors, such as the state of your current smile, how well you adhere to treatment, and other factors.
You can help to shorten treatment times by adhering to your Invisalign treatment plan and listening to Dr. Salami’s recommendations. Dr. Salami will be able to give you more specifics about the longevity of your Invisalign treatment at your initial consultation.
How Does the Invisalign System Work?
To see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment, you’ll first schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Salami.
During your consultation, you are encouraged to ask questions and voice your concerns. Dr. Salami will do her best to provide you with more understanding of this revolutionary orthodontic treatment while helping you feel at ease about the Invisalign process.
Dr. Salami is a select provider for Invisalign and is qualified to provide you with Invisalign. She will begin by asking you a series of questions about your dental and orthodontic history in order to determine if you are the best fit for Invisalign orthodontics.
If you are determined to be a good candidate, Dr. Salami will begin the process. Here’s how it works.
Taking a Model of Your Smile
In order to ensure that your Invisalign aligners fit your mouth perfectly, exact models of your current smile must be taken. Dr. Salami utilizes a high-tech 3D scanner that takes an image of your teeth and gums.
This data will then be used to create the aligners that you’ll use during treatment. This state-of-the-art imaging device can even show you what you’ll look like once your Invisalign treatment plan has been completed.
