Invisalign in Pflugerville
Invisalign is a non-invasive and virtually unnoticeable technique for straightening your teeth. The system uses a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that fit precisely over and around your teeth, causing them to gently, gradually, and discretely move to the ideal position to improve your smile.
To determine whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, you should visit your orthodontist for an initial consultation to discuss any issues you may have with your smile and create a custom treatment plan.
Here’s what you can expect:
Once you find a qualified and experienced Invisalign specialist, you will set up the initial examination to evaluate your teeth and establish whether Invisalign is a good option for your case. You can ask as many questions as you need to before the treatment begins to ensure that the final results are what you’re looking for, and that the entire treatment fits your budget.
Once your treatment begins, the dentist will take records of your teeth and bite to help in creating a custom Invisalign treatment plan. The data collected includes:
- Dental X-rays to evaluate the root position and health of your tooth root and jawbone
- Bite impression to assess how your upper and lower jaws fit together
- Dental impressions that show the imprint of your teeth
- Digital photos or images from different angles of your teeth and full-face
The personal information collected is used to fill out a prescription for how Invisalign will address your orthodontic issue. This indicates the status quo of your teeth, the ideal mode of treatment, and the expected changed in tooth alignment. The prescription will then be sent to a dental lab where they will be used to create a digital 3D model of your jaw and teeth, as well as a treatment plan for how your teeth will move to the final destination.
Once the dentist approves the treatment plan, your custom aligners will be fabricated and sent back to your dentist’s office so you can commence your treatment. Most teens and all adults can benefits from Invisalign treatment. If you want to improve your smile, schedule your consultation today.
