Try Invisalign in Battle Creek from Bandeen Orthodontics if You Want an Aligned Smile

If traditional braces are not something you would consider because of the way they look or how treatment is done – and you would like to improve your smile and better align your teeth – Invisalign may be just what you are looking for. When you choose Invisalign, you ae choosing clear aligner trays that are not as noticeable as traditional braces, require less time in the office, and can be taken out and put in easily at home. The length of treatment can be more or less than traditional braces, but it really just depends on the extent of the movement of teeth that is needed which varies from patient to patient.

During your initial visit, we determine the severity of your misalignment and what your orthodontic treatment needs are in order to determine if Invisalign is an option for you. One of the advantages of choosing Bandeen is that if you would like to start treatment, we take your records at this first visit – including photographs, x-rays, and a scan so that we can create an exact digital model of your teeth without the need for impressions.

After we have them, your records are sent to Invisalign, where your results are customized by adjusting the computer model of your teeth so that they’re in their ideal positions. Then, Invisalign makes your aligner trays, sends them to Bandeen. We then give them to you so that we can schedule a visit and place them on your teeth. Each aligner is worn for seven days then you advance to the next one until you use all of the aligners. You will receive your aligners in groups so that you don’t have to come see us each week.

Once you have finished a week of wear with each aligner, we may need to take another scan for a new computer model, send to Invisalign again, and work with them to revise or fine tune your results with a few more aligners in order to ensure you’re getting the best results possible. Once your treatment is complete and your teeth are where they need to be, we will provide you with a set of retainers so that you can keep your results.
