Try Invisalign in Battle Creek from Bandeen Orthodontics

Because braces aren’t right for everyone, Invisalign is a great option to adjust your teeth and improve your smile. Invisalign uses high quality, durable clear trays (aligners) to move teeth. The length of treatment will vary based on how much movement is necessary. In this post, we will look at what you can expect if you choose Invisalign in Battle Creek from Bandeen Orthodontics.

When you have your initial visit, we will assess your needs and determine whether or not Invisalign is an option for your orthodontic problem. If you decide you’re ready to start treatment, we will take your records at this initial appointment. This involves a set of photographs, x-rays, and a scan in order to create a perfect computer model of your teeth. That’s right, we do not take messy impressions at Bandeen Orthodontics in Battle Creek!

Once Invisalign receives your records, we customize your results by moving the digitized teeth to their optimal positions. Invisalign then makes the trays for us to give to you. Once you have received your custom aligners, you visit us so we can place them on your teeth. Each aligner is worn for a week then you advance to the next one until you have worn each one. To save you time, you will receive your aligners in groups, so that you don’t have to come into the office each week. The number of aligners depends on how much movement is necessary for your teeth.

Once you have completed a week of wear with each aligner, we may need to take another scan for a new computer model, resend to Invisalign, and work with them for a revision or to fine tune your results with a few more aligners. Once your treatment is complete, we will provide you with a set of retainers in order to keep the results you have worked so hard to achieve.
