APPOINTMENTS FOR INVISALIGN
A complimentary consultation appointment will be your first step to invisalign. Study models of your mouth will have been taken and examined so the dentist will be able to share with you the diagnosis of treatment. At this time, we will also discuss what you would like invisalign to accomplish for your smile and have any of your other questions answered. There is no fee with this appointment!
At your next appointment you will undergo a routine pre-treatment examination including a full mouth set of x-rays (these will only be taken if you do not have one within the last two years), a series of 8 different photos, and upper and lower impressions. The down payment will be collected at this time. This down payment is non refundable. However, if you decide to go through with the treatment this amount is applied towards the total cost of treatment. Your information is then sent to Align Dental Laboratory where it is scanned into a computer. The lab technicians then propose a treatment result specifically designed for you.
Confirmation Appointment: (clincheck) :
Once the doctor receives your treatment results, via email from Align laboratories, we will schedule you to return to our office to view the results. At this appointment, you and the doctor will go over your treatment results. If there are changes you would like to make, you are able to do so at this appointment. If any changes are made, another appointment is scheduled so you can view the new treatment results. However, if you are 100% satisfied with the results, we will process your request and the remaining balance for treatment iis due at this time. The aligners will arrive in 1-2 weeks.
When we receive your aligners, you will return to our office for delivery and try in. You will be scheduled to return to our office in one week. At this appointment, we will check the aligners, answer any questions that you may have and deliver your next 3 sets of aligners. Another appointment will be scheduled in 7 weeks. At this 7 week appointment we will compare your teeth to the treatment from Align Technologies to make sure everything is moving as planned. You will also be given 3 more aligners and will return to our office in 6 weeks. This 6 weeks scheduling pattern will continue until your treatment is finished. Each appointment will only last 20-30 minutes and may vary if adjustments are needed.
When your last three aligners are delivered an appointment will be scheduled in 6 weeks, at this appointment we will be taking impressions to make your retainer and take “after” photos. You will then wear your retainer 24 hours a day 7 days a week for 3 months. After three months you will return to our office again for evaluation of your teeth and retainer.
Note: Since teeth will always tend to shift, we recommend that you wear your retainers for life.
