Your smile is important. When you feel good about your smile, it really improves your self-confidence. Dr. Ang understands this — that’s why he features a number of treatment options to give you the smile you really want.
If you choose Invisalign® care with Dr. Ang, you’ll have a beautiful new smile before you know it.
The Invisalign Advantage
A lot of patients who suffer from a crooked smile are reluctant to seek treatment because they don’t want to hassle with traditional metal braces. Fortunately, Dr. Ang uses Invisalign to treat many of the same issues that are commonly corrected with metal braces.
There’s really no comparison between Invisalign and metal braces: Invisalign is faster, easier, more comfortable, and you can eat what you want. What’s more, your clear Invisalign aligners are so inconspicuous that most people won’t even notice them, so you’ll be free to smile whenever you want.
How Invisalign Works
Your road to a perfect smile begins with your consultation with Dr. Ang. He’ll perform a complete dental examination and ask you about your treatment goals so he’ll know what your expectations are. Then he’ll go over your treatment options.
If you choose Invisalign, we can get the process started right away. Dr. Ang will use our tiny intraoral camera to generate precise digital images of your smile. He’ll use this information to design your treatment plan. Then we’ll share your treatment plan with Invisalign so they can start making your new aligners right away.
At this time, we can also use our advanced digital technology to show you exactly how your new smile will look on you once your treatment is complete.
The Benefits of SmartTrack® Technology
Invisalign treatment is really easy. You’ll be provided with a new set of aligners every few weeks. They’re made from Invisalign’s exclusive SmartTrack material. Each new aligner is designed to gradually shift your teeth until you have the smile you really want.
Your Invisalign aligners are custom-made, so they have a snug and comfortable fit. There’s minimal discomfort, and your aligners never need tightening. That means you’ll only have to visit Dr. Ang about every eight weeks or so, giving him an opportunity to monitor the progress of your treatment.
Invisalign treatment typically requires about a year to straighten your smile — that’s about two times faster than the average treatment time using metal braces.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Invisalign work?
The Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made aligners to gradually move your teeth into proper alignment. The aligners look similar to mouthguards for people who play contact sports. Your aligners are clear, so your friends probably won’t even notice you’re wearing them. Each set of aligners takes you one step closer to a perfect smile.
What’s the treatment process with Invisalign?
Using our advanced digital imaging equipment, we’ll generate 3D pictures of your smile. Dr. Ang uses this information to create a customized treatment plan that maps out how the aligners will gradually shift your teeth to the correct position. Your Invisalign aligners apply the precise amount of force necessary to gently move your teeth.
You’ll wear each set of your aligners for a few weeks, discard them, and then continue with the next set until you’ve completed your treatment. Dr. Ang monitors your progress, making any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
How do I begin my Invisalign treatment?
It’s simple to get started with Invisalign at Amherst Village Dental. All you have to do is schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Ang. During this visit, he’ll answer any additional questions you have about the treatment and evaluate the current condition of your smile.
Using CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography), Dr. Ang will create images of your teeth that he’ll use to create your customized treatment plan. With digital modeling, we can also show you how your new smile will look when your Invisalign treatment is complete. After a few weeks, you’ll receive your first set of aligners to begin the treatment process.
