Invisalign

If Invisalign interest you, learn more about the treatment process for this alignment method at our Arkadelphia, Arkansas-based office. 

First Visit

The first step is to call us to schedule an appointment so that our dentist can review and explain the different types of alternatives that are available to correct your bite. Since everyone is not a candidate for Invisalign, our dentist must first conduct an oral evaluation to see if you qualify for this treatment.

Customized Treatment Plan

Once you are have been deemed eligible for Invisalign, our dentist will begin customizing a plan for you. Dental impressions are one method that our dentist may use to create your aligners. Our dentist can also create dental impressions of your teeth using our comprehensive 3D digital system, iTero, to show your teeth’s current condition and what you can expect with Invisalign.

Aligners

As mentioned earlier, Invisalign consists of a set of transparent aligners. They are typically made of a BPA-free, SmartTrack material, meaning that the aligners do not contain the toxins many plastic components carry. One of the benefits of the aligners is that they can be removed easily, making it very convenient to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.

Follow-Up Care

Although Invisalign aligners are detachable, our dentist will recommend wearing them most of day and night to achieve optimal results. Moreover, your Invisalign aligners will be replaced by our dentist throughout the treatment as needed. Our staff will schedule these appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary changes.

Care Plan

Our dentist will provide you useful instructions and recommendations on how to clean and take proper care of your aligners. To reduce possibilities for bacteria growth, after eating, be sure to brush your teeth and aligners before reinserting them.  After you have completed your Invisalign treatment, our dentist will most likely recommend wearing a retainer to secure the stability of your teeth and their new position.

Options for Payments

Our office offers several credit options for the Invisalign procedure, including CareCredit.
