What Conditions Can Invisalign® Treat?
The best candidates for Invisalign® include patients with good oral health who are struggling with:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded and overlapping teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Mild to moderate bite disorders
- TMJ disorder
- Gapped teeth
During your initial consultation, Dr. Stein will use advanced technology to evaluate the extent of your teeth's misalignment in order to create a customized treatment plan. Patients with extensive dental misalignment or jaw disorders may benefit more from traditional metal braces.
Invisalign® is an effective orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligner trays to discreetly shift teeth into proper alignment
The Invisalign® Treatment and Timeline
Our dental office uses the Cadent iTero® system to capture digital images of your mouth, eliminating the need for messy and uncomfortable putty impressions. Once the images are captured, a three-dimensional mold is made of your smile and sent to the Invisalign® lab where technicians will create your custom-made trays. Dr. Stein will work closely with the lab to ensure that your trays fit comfortably.
The tray fabrication process can take anywhere from two to three weeks. Once complete, Dr. Stein will have you come in for a follow-up appointment, check that the first set of trays fit comfortably, and send you home with detailed instructions to follow that will ensure you achieve the best results. The length of your treatment plan will depend on the severity of your misalignment, but the average patient can achieve the desired results within 12 to 18 months. Throughout this time, Dr. Stein will monitor your treatment through a series of follow-up appointments.
