Invisalign Monmouth County NJ
You may be somewhat familiar with how the Invisalign® treatment works, but we’d like to take you through each step of the treatment process, from consultation to confident smile. Whether you’re considering treatment for yourself or someone else, knowing more about the entire process can help you be more confident in your decision to choose Invisalign and enjoy a better smile every day.
Initial Consultation for the Invisalign Process
Choosing the right doctor and the right treatment plan is so essential, because not all dentists and orthodontists work with Invisalign. Dr Olcay has received the proper Invisalign training and can truly evaluate your needs and determine how Invisalign can help you.
Your treatment begins with an initial consultation with Dr Olcay. She will outline the medical and financial details of your decision. During the consultation, you and Dr Olcay will discuss your case in detail to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign now addresses many cases, from simple to more complex. She will determine if Invisalign is right for you.
A Customized Treatment Plan is Created for You
Dr Olcay will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image of them. From these images she will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth, and tell you the approximate length of treatment. Using the same technology she will be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment. While every case is unique to each patient, treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults. For teens the length of treatments is comparable to that of braces.
Receive Your Custom Aligners Based On
Your Personalized Treatment Plan
Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners is then created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do. Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or to brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. And because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
Wear a New Aligner Every Two Weeks
Approximately every two weeks, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. To monitor your progress, you will also have occasional checkups with your doctor, usually only every six weeks or so. For best results and a timely outcome, you should wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, throughout your entire treatment. At every stage, you will be able to see how much closer you are to having the smile that reflects the real you.
Reveal Your New Smile & Keep It Looking Great
Congratulations! This is the time when you celebrate. You have reached the end of treatment and you will be smiling more than ever.
Once your treatment is complete, protect the beautiful new smile you have invested in. Dr Olcay will access if you will need retainers to keep your teeth in their new position. Vivera® retainers are custom made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign. Vivera retainers lock in your beautiful smile.
