The popularity of Invisalign® has grown tremendously over the last few years. And for mild to moderate cases, this “invisible technology” can be an effective alternative to traditional braces. To gradually straighten teeth and correct overcrowding, gapped spacing, cross bite, and overbite issues, the Invisalign® system works by using a series of custom-fitted aligners that are clear and removable. Both teens and adults can benefit from Invisalign®. For patients who are interested in Invisalign®, we start by taking a physical impression or digital scan of your teeth and bite. From there, a 3D model of your information is made to help create an accurate treatment plan that’s right for you. Upon approval, Invisalign® will create your unique, custom-made series of aligners. Once you start treatment, we will see you every 6 to 8 weeks for follow-up appointments. In the meantime, you’ll be able to advance yourself throughout the series of aligners at home, moving on to the next one about every 1 to 2 weeks. The advantage of getting fitted at Echo Family Dental ensures that your overall oral health will be properly managed as you make progress during your Invisalign® journey, which can last from just a few months to more than a year.
