Five Steps to a Brighter, Straighter Smile

2077881169_9a951e33fa_zIf you’ve ever wished for straighter teeth or a more aligned smile, Invisalign is right for you. Best of all, the clear alternative to braces is incredibly easy to care for! Learn more in today’s new blog post—we’ve outlined the five steps you’ll take during Invisalign treatment below to show you how easy it is to improve your smile.

1. Make an Invisalign Consultation Appointment
When you first start considering the clear alternative to braces, schedule an appointment with one of our certified Level II or Level III Invisalign experts. Our dentists can evaluate your health and determine whether or not Invisalign is the right plan for you. During your appointment, we can also create a computer-generated image to show you what your anticipated results will look like. With an image in mind of your potential future smile, you’ll feel confident and prepared to undergo treatment.

2. Start Invisalign Treatment
When you’re ready to begin, you’ll receive your first set of Invisalign aligners. Over the course of your treatment, you’ll receive numerous aligners that are customized to fit your teeth and the progress of your journey. Wear each set for two weeks at a time and watch as your smile is slowly shifted into a straighter, more aligned place.

3. Care for Your Aligners
One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign treatment is that the aligners are so easy to care for! You’ll simply remove them each time you eat or drink, which means that there are no limitations on your diet. You can also take the aligners out to care for your teeth at night, so you can continue your normal oral healthcare routine. Each time you take out the aligners, simply place them in water or an Invisalign carrying case. Clean your aligners with an Invisalign cleaning kit or with a regular toothbrush to keep them fresh and looking totally clear.

4. Visit ADC Dental
Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you’ll meet with your dentist once every six weeks to check on the progress of your aligners. These appointments are brief and can easily meet the most convenient times for your schedule. During your appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to ask your dentist about Invisalign care, your overall progress, and any other dental questions you may have. Update appointments also make great milestones in your overall care so that you can count down the weeks to the straighter smile of your dreams!

5. Enjoy Your Results
After you’ve finished wearing all your sets of aligners, you’ll schedule a final consultation with your dentist to review your treatment and to go over your progress. As soon as you’re finished, you’ll be ready to take off your last set of aligners and show the world how happy and bright your new smile is. Enjoy the confidence that straighter teeth can bring and be sure to show off your great results to all your friends and family!
