Learn About the Invisalign System

Bandeen Orthodontics offers different orthodontic treatment options to patients in Three Rivers. In some cases, patients need significant work that requires traditional metal braces, but other patients may be qualified candidates for the Invisalign system. This system can produce effective results without the struggle of having all of that metal in your mouth. When you come to the Bandeen Orthodontic office in Three Rivers, we will provide you with a complete examination of your teeth and mouth to determine if the Invisalign system is appropriate for your specific situation.

Thorough Review of Your Orthodontic Records

Once we have made the determination that Invisalign is the right system for you, we need to perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and mouth. This process includes photographs, x-rays, and also the impressions that the Invisalign laboratory needs for proper development of your alignment system.

Creation of Your Invisalign Aligners

The Invisalign lab will take the images and impressions of your teeth to create a computerized model. Once the model has been created, Invisalign will work with us to create a set of aligner that you need to use in proper sequence to properly complete realignment of your teeth to produce the results that you want.

The Invisalign Treatment Procedure

Once the aligners for your treatment have been created, you will work with our orthodontist and treatment team to learn how to properly use the system and care for the aligners for the best possible results. Your treatment plan will be unique to your specific situation, so it’s crucial that you follow the orthodontist’s instructions as closely as possible.

When the time comes that you have completed the sequence of aligners, you will visit us for follow-up examination to determine if any further adjustments or fine tuning needs to be completed to ensure that you get the smile you have always wanted.

Maintenance for Long-Term Success

The work isn’t done once the Invisalign treatment sequence is complete. You may need a set of retainers to keep the teeth in place, and we will work with you throughout ongoing appointments to make sure there are no complications moving forward.

Invisalign is a very successful process for some patients, but unfortunately, it is not appropriate for everybody. When you come to Bandeen Orthodontics in Three Rivers, we make sure to find the treatment that is best suited to address your unique orthodontic treatment needs.
