If you are wondering, “Is Invisalign Right for Me?” then it probably is. There is only one way to know for sure though. At Ries Orthodontics, we make that simple with a complimentary consultation. Our doctors offer this service because they believe that people shouldn’t have to hesitate based on the cost of an orthodontic examination.
Common Orthodontic Problems
During your initial consultation, the doctor will review your past medical and dental history. They will check x-rays and digital images, then perform a complete oral examination. The diagnostic record the doctor compiles during this appointment will follow you throughout treatment.
Once the initial examination is complete, the doctor develops treatment recommendations. This may include braces or Invisalign, allowing you a choice. In a few cases, Invisalign is not a suitable treatment, but for most problems from minor to complex it a viable option. Invisalign has been very successful in treating the following alignment problems:
- Open bite
- Crowded and crooked teeth
- Gap teeth (spacing between teeth)
Whether you have a minor problem or a complex issue, Invisalign may be right for you. Because it is a patient-centered treatment, you will have to dedicate yourself to participating in your treatment.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
Invisalign may be right for you if you are experiencing one of the common problems mentioned above. If you are ready to make a commitment to yourself to transform your smile, now is the perfect time to begin.
We mention making a commitment to yourself and this is why. Being patient-centered, Invisalign requires the patient to follow the treatment plan. That means wearing the tray aligners from 20 to 22 hours every day. You will need to keep up with oral hygiene, including keeping your trays clean. Failure to commit to the entire plan may extend the treatment duration.
So, if you are ready to dedicate yourself to discovering your new smile, contact Ries Orthodontics to schedule your complimentary consultation. When you complete your visit, all treatment options will be explained to you in full detail. This will include the duration of treatment, cost, any dietary restrictions, and other information you will need.
