If you have a bad bite, then chances are you’re wondering if dental braces or Invisalign Clear Aligners are right for you. To determine that, we’ll assess the severity of your bite, what your preferences are, what you’re willing to pay, and make an appropriate recommendation.
Once the right method for you has been decided and we’ve gathered all the information we need in order to execute your treatment plan, we will fit you with your braces. This will take one appointment that lasts about 2-3 hours if you’re getting traditional braces. If you’re undergoing Invisalign treatment, we will simply give you your first set of Invisalign Clear Aligners and put them on for you. Once this process is complete, we’ll walk you through the instructions you should follow in order to get the most out of your treatment.
When you wear traditional braces or Invisalign Clear Aligners, you will see us on a regular basis to update your fit as your teeth shift. For traditional braces, we will tighten them on a regular basis to ensure they keep shifting your teeth correctly. With Invisalign, you will visit us every few weeks so we can give you your next set of aligners. Keep in mind that with Invisalign Clear Aligners, they are each shaped a bit differently so as to guide your teeth to the right position.
