What to Expect With Invisalign®

You will meet with one of our Invisalign® dentists, Dr. Maria Escoto or Dr. Alberto Mantovani, for a consultation. During the consultation, we will determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign® by taking x-rays and examining your teeth. If we decide that Invisalign® can help you achieve your desired results, we will take digital impressions of your teeth using the I-Tero Scanner and send them to the Invisalign® lab. The I-Tero’s advanced scanning technology creates highly accurate digital impressions, streamlining the Invisalign treatment process by ensuring a precise fit for the aligners.

The lab then constructs each set of aligners for your treatment. Our technology even allows you to preview your teeth-straightening journey before it starts!

Invisalign® functions similarly to traditional braces but uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets. These aligners apply gentle pressure to shift your teeth gradually into place.

You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks or as your SoBe™ Invisalign® dentist recommends. Wear them at least 22 hours daily, removing them only for eating, drinking, or brushing. After meals, brush your teeth to keep your aligners clean.

Every six weeks, you’ll visit SoBe Dentist™ for a progress check. Most treatments last between six to 24 months. After your treatment, you’ll need a retainer to maintain your new smile.

Why You Might Need Invisalign®

Invisalign® can correct various dental issues, including:

  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Open bite (where your upper and lower teeth don’t meet)
  • Underbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Benefits of Invisalign®

One benefit of clear aligners is that in addition to having a stunningly straight smile, you will not have to come to the office as often as you would with traditional braces. As much as we like seeing you, one of the perks of Invisalign® is that they require less maintenance than conventional metal braces. That’s good news for those of you with busy schedules.

By the end of your treatment, you’ll enjoy a straighter smile and additional benefits like:

  • Easy to clean
  • Discreet (unless you tell people, they won’t notice them!)
  • Easy to transport as you travel
  • Comfortable
  • Affordable

If you’ve been putting off teeth straightening due to the drawbacks of metal braces, Invisalign® could be the solution you’ve been waiting for.

Are You a Candidate for Invisalign Treatment?

Ideal candidates for Invisalign are generally adults or older teenagers who have fully developed jaws. As we’ve mentioned, this treatment is particularly effective for correcting mild to moderate dental issues such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and gaps between teeth. However, it may not be the best option for more complex dental problems that require significant movement or rotation of teeth. Good oral hygiene is crucial when undergoing Invisalign treatment, as the aligners must be kept clean to avoid bacterial buildup. It’s also essential to be committed to wearing the aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day for optimal results.
