We are proud to say that Dr. Poidmore is an Elite Provider of the Invisalign system. For those who are concerned about their appearance while undergoing orthodontic treatment, this is the perfect option for you! Dr. Poidmore has completed numerous Invisalign cases in order to have a full understanding of the capabilities and results of this orthodontic option. For adults and other candidates of Invisalign, it is the key to a better smile without the traditional metal braces. However, the aesthetics are merely just one of the benefits of this orthodontic treatment. If you think that you or someone you know may be a candidate for Invisalign, we would highly encourage you read more below!
How It Works
Using modern 3-D imaging technology, a custom set of aligners is made for you. Every two weeks, you switch to a new aligner. As you switch aligners, your teeth gradually and comfortably shift, resulting in a beautiful smile. We will have you come by their office every six weeks to confirm the progress of your treatment. On average, you will be in treatment for 9 – 15 months and wear 18 – 30 different aligners. However, actual treatment times will depend on your particular case.
One of the most obvious benefits of the Invisalign system is simply the aesthetics. With the Invisalign clear aligners, your orthodontic process will be virtually invisible to those around you. With this system patients are able to remove their aligners to brush and floss eliminating the risk of any staining after treatment. We suggest that patients make sure to put their aligners on right after they finish eating, brushing or flossing.
With Invisalign treatment, less appointments at our office will be required, and generally your appointment time should be shorter. On average with Invisalign treatment at Poidmore Orthodontics, appointments are needed every 10-12 weeks. Dr. Poidmore's treatment time with Invisalign treatment ranges from 2 months - 18 months. At your consultation appointment, we will let you know how long your treatment will take before you decide to get started.
With Invisalign, there are no brackets or wires to cause irritation. That is why Invisalign is the treatment of choice for a number of our adult patients at Poidmore Orthodontics. Because of Dr. Poidmore’s experience with the Invisalign system, we know just how to polish and smooth the Invisalign trays for maximum comfort. Dr. Poidmore can also control the movement of the teeth with Invisalign, making sure that each patient has a comfortable and easy experience with the Invisalign system.
