Step By Step Guide For Getting Invisible Braces
Deciding on orthodontic treatment is a big decision and not one to take lightly. Weighing up your options, choosing the right orthodontist, and having a solid treatment plan can all pay dividends when it comes to your results. Today, our Wolverhampton dentists walk you through the process of precise invisible braces, so you can make the best decision for you – and your smile.
Invisalign Step 1: The research phase
What’s the best practice for your treatment? What experience do orthodontists have? Are there patient reviews? How many previous patients have undergone Invisalign treatment at the practice? These are all great questions to consider for your invisible brace treatment. Once you’ve found a dental practice, you’ll need to consider the clear brace brands that are used, such as Invisalign. Thankfully, there’s a treasure trove of information available on the internet and you’ll likely know someone who’s had brace treatment, too.
Invisalign Step 2: Consultation
Now you’ve chosen the dental practice, it’s time to take a closer look at your teeth. Your orthodontist will investigate whether you’re suited to Invisalign, as well as cover any concerns you might have in-depth. If your teeth need any extra TLC (like whitening), or another procedure is required (such as extraction, often recommended in tooth crowding cases), your orthodontist will talk you through it. They’ll also take images of your smile and use Invisalign software to predict the movements each tooth needs to straighten your smile with invisible braces.
Invisalign Step 3: Treatment
Now comes the day of your clear brace aligners. Your orthodontist will demonstrate how to wear these; what to do about cleaning and storing them; when check-ups are needed; and how many sets are required overall (and when to change them). You can also download the Invisalign app for extra support on your clear brace journey.
Invisalign Step 4: Invisible Braces Results
Congratulations – you’ve got the smile of your dreams! To keep on top of your results, your orthodontist will advise on oral care and products; retainer use and wear; Invisalign check-ups required, and cosmetic treatments you might like to consider. Then, all that’s left to do is enjoy your smile – and share it with everyone you meet!
