Invisalign aligners straighten teeth:
- Faster than braces
- More comfortable than braces
- More predictably
For many, Invisalign® is an alternative to traditional orthodontics. Invisalign’s Vivera retainers are more comfortable, more discreet, and less painful than braces. They also provide the flexibility of removing the retainer when eating, playing sports, singing, or at any desired time.
Invisalign retainers are custom made to fit every detail of your smile. Every Invisalign case requires a face-to-face appointment with an official Invisalign providing doctor. At our office, Dr. Matlock may use a combination of imaging, and impressions to facilitate the best results for each individual case. Depending on the complexities of a case, treatment can be completed within as little as 6 months.
If you would like to find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, please schedule a free Invisalign consultation with Dr. Matlock at your next visit. Or inquire chair side at your next appointment.
What is the Invisalign treatment process?
- Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained doctor. Your doctor will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile. Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your doctor. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile. [Invisalign®]
What happens when I’m done with Invisalign treatment?
- Most doctors recommend that anyone who has completed orthodontic treatment, whether with braces or Invisalign treatment, use a retainer to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back toward their initial position. Every case is different, so ask your doctor if you need retainers. [Invisalign®]
