THE CLEAR ALTERNATIVE TO BRACES

If you’ve always wanted straighter and whiter teeth, but didn’t want to go through life with the look and discomfort of metal braces, then Invisalign is what you’ve been looking for. Meadowbrook Family Dental in Elk Grove uses Invisalign to straighten your teeth without the discomfort and embarrassment that comes with traditional braces. Invisalign is virtually invisible. The only thing they’ll see is your smile. Using a series of removable, clear aligners, Invisalign improves your teeth’s alignment slowly and effectively, making it more hygienic and comfortable. You can eat whatever your heart desires as well as brush and floss normally.

Treatment time varies from case to case, however the average treatment time for most patients in Invisalign ends up just being between 10-12 months.

We are your Elk Grove Invisalign office.

Three Steps to Straighter Teeth

1. Schedule your complimentary Invisalign® consultation

An Invisalign certified dentist will evaluate your teeth to see if Invisalign is right for you. We’ll take a panoramic image to check your teeth’s health and underlying bone structure. Then we’ll answer any questions you may have about your treatment.

2. Let us take a 3D scan of your teeth

Using our iTero scanner, we’ll digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and gives us a superior clinical endpoint. Within minutes, we’ll have a 3D model of your mouth that we can use to show you what your new smile may look like. Then it’s up to you to decide if you’re ready to start your Invisalign treatment.

3. Simply wear your aligners

A few weeks after your scan is taken and you’ve given us the green light to start, we’ll receive your Elk Grove Invisalign clear aligners. We’ll go over all instructions when you come in for your first fitting. You should wear your aligners all the time-about 22 hours a day-taking them out only to eat, brush, and floss.

We know you’re busy so we work around your schedule. You’ll come in every few months for follow-up visits to check your progress and receive more aligners. It won’t be long before you notice your teeth gradually move into alignment as you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series. Once you’ve finished all your aligners and both you and the doctor are happy with the results, you’ll get clear retainers that appear similar to the Invisalign aligners, but are stronger to keep your teeth from shifting again. Whitening is included with your treatment, so you will not only have straighter teeth, but they will be whiter as well!
