If you are thinking of Invisalign®, it is likely because you are hesitant about wearing metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth. You would love to straighten your smile without marring the beauty of it in the process. As you are beginning your Invisalign journey Dr. Wilson, Dr. Cowley, and our team are happy to walk you through the Invisalign process.
First, you’ll come into our office for a consultation. Our orthodontists will perform an evaluation to determine whether Invisalign is the best option for you. Then a scanner will be used to create 3D images of your teeth. These images will be used to map out your personalized treatment plan.
Your Invisalign aligners, which are virtually invisible, will be made and your first set will be given to you. Wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, or as our orthodontists recommends. Take out your Invisalign aligners when you eat and when you brush and floss.
Each set of Invisalign aligners will gradually and gently move your teeth to their correct positions. You will receive your next set of aligners about every week and checkups at Orthodontics, Inc. will be scheduled about every six weeks.
Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, our team may recommend that you wear a retainer to hold the positions of your newly straightened teeth until they stabilize.
Feel free to contact our office at 505-325-8858 today to learn more about Invisalign in Farmington, New Mexico, and to schedule a visit. We look forward to aiding you in your journey to a greater smile!
