Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with our board-certified orthodontist, Dr. David Markham, can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.
WHY WOULD I WANT INVISALIGN?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in our Auburn dental office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?
During your first visit to Maidu Dental, we’ll take high-tech digital impressions, rather than taking unpleasant, uncomfortable, gooey impressions. These are sent electronically to the Invisalign lab so your aligners can be fabricated.
Once you receive your aligners, you’ll wear each set for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit our Auburn dentist’s office about once every six to ten weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 12 to 18 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Our doctors, and our entire team take pride in offering the greatest and the latest, all with a genuine dedication to the patient experience and the relationship we form with each individual.
