Invisalign are custom-made plastic aligners that gradually straighten teeth without the need for metal brackets or wires. These clear braces are removable and will not interfere with eating, speaking, or brushing your teeth.
BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN TREATMENTS
Dr. Jacob Robichaux will first give you a complete orthodontic assessment to determine your suitability for the Invisalign treatment. We will take digital scans and X-rays of your mouth to help plan your treatment.
We will scan the 3D impressions of your teeth using Invisalign software. This will help plan your treatment and determine the number of aligner sets needed. At this stage, we can show the visualization of your final smile appearance if you follow our treatment plan. The impressions will be mailed to the Invisalign provider to fabricate the aligners.
On your next visit, we will provide the complete set of aligners that should be worn in a sequence. We will demonstrate how to wear and remove them safely. Each aligner set must be worn for approximately a 14 days.
We will schedule your follow-up dental check-ups every four to six weeks to monitor your progress. After your Invisalign process has been completed, you will need to wear a retainer at night to keep the teeth straight.
