Your smile matters. In today’s fast-paced, image-conscious society, people make snap judgments the first time they lay eyes on you. Whether the situation is friendly, romantic, or professional, a dazzling smile is the best way to make a great impression. Crooked teeth can ruin the appearance of an otherwise beautiful smile, and so can metal braces. You won’t have a second chance to make that first impression – what can you do?
Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontic treatment with a beautiful, convenient alternative to braces. There are no brackets, and no wires involved. In fact, there is no metal at all! This unique system utilizes transparent aligners to move teeth gently, without discomfort or embarrassment. It can correct both cosmetic and bite alignment issues. Sophisticated technology behind the scenes makes your experience remarkably simple.
The first step is a consultation. Dr. Don Mungcal will perform a comprehensive oral evaluation. If he discovers any health issues such as decay or gum disease, those will be addressed. He will also take any necessary records, such as photographs, impressions, and x-rays.
The next step is planning your treatment. This system works with a series of aligner trays, making incremental changes. With Invisalign’s ClinCheck software, Dr. Mungcal can review the design of each tray, and the projected result, before treatment begins. This makes Invisalign highly predictable, and unproblematic.
When the plan is perfected and accepted, your trays will be manufactured. The computer controlled fabrication process ensures precision accuracy. As soon as we receive your aligners from Invisalign, your treatment can begin.
There are a few, simple guidelines that you will need to follow, to maximize results.
- Remove your trays while eating. Clean your teeth thoroughly and replace the trays promptly after meals. They should be worn a minimum of 22-23 hours per day.
- Clean your trays with cool or lukewarm water; hot water can cause them to warp.
- Every two weeks, discard your aligner and begin using the next one in the numbered set.
- Every six weeks, visit Dr. Mungcal so he can monitor your progress.
- Watch your smile become straighter every day!
