How Do We Correct Crowding?
Before we achieve less crowded teeth, we need space! Creating space can be achieved in several ways:
Food traps can lead to periodontal (gum) disease and tooth decay. Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place. If it is left untreated, bone loss can occur, leading to tooth loss.
Large gaps can negatively affect speech.
Gaps between front teeth are commonly thought to be unattractive by the patients who seek treatment to have them closed.
Thick or Low Frenum Attachments
Congenitally Small or Misshapen Teeth
New Patient Consult
Prior to your complimentary new patient consultation, you will be asked to fill out an online inquiry into your desires for treatment outcome, medical history and insurance benefits. After gathering the necessary diagnostics, our team will show you a quick view of your potential results with the Invisalign simulator and discuss financial planning options with you.
Develop A Treatment Plan
Before any decisions on treatment can be made, our orthodontist must collect great diagnostics. Dr. Moles will combine his 30 years of expertise as a specialist in orthodontics with the diagnostic data collected, to design a plan using Invisalign aligner’s world class treatment planning software, Clincheck® Pro.
Manufacture Your Plan
Typically, the planning process takes about one to two weeks. Dr. Moles will then send your plan to manufacturing. Manufacturing typically takes another two to three weeks before they arrive at our office. Dr. Moles may need to discuss your plan with you personally. In these instances, either an in-office or virtual consultation will be arranged.
Next, we will set up an appointment with you. Dr. Moles, and one of our technicians will deliver your first sets of aligners, place any attachments needed and go over instructions.
Then it’s up to you! Wearing your aligners as prescribed will speed you along to the smile of your dreams! We will be monitoring your progress weekly and arrange for the delivery of your remaining aligners every three to four months as needed.
