What to Expect
If the patient decides that clear aligner trays using Invisalign is the right choice for orthodontic needs, the first stage begins with digital X-rays of the mouth so that the aligners can be developed. Our dentists and the staff at Stillwater Dental Care work with each patient to understand how to take care of and wear their trays, and discuss to the patient about how important it is to wear the aligners in for the majority of the day. Invisalign are usually worn for two weeks before a new set of aligners are then given. This is determined based on the progress of how rapidly the teeth move. During each visit at Stillwater Dental Care, our dentists will give the patient a precise timeframe of how much longer they will be required to wear Invisalign.
Once the Invisalign treatment is completed, it is important that the patient use an Invisalign Vivera retainer to sustain the results. The majority of individuals need to keep their retainer in place during the night. For continued success, patients should proactively visit our dentists at Stillwater Dental Care a couple of times a year and follow a diligent at-home oral routine.
The total cost of Invisalign will change based on the complications pertaining to the patient's teeth, and the number of aligner sets that will be necessary. Dental insurance with orthodontics may cover a certain amount of the cost. This varies based on the patient's benefits. The staff at Stillwater Dental Care will determine what the patient's coverage entails so that a realistic fee can be provided by our dentists during the patient's initial consultation.
