Invisalign - Chico, CA
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that is comfortable and much easier than traditional braces. The clear aligners gently and gradually move your teeth into place and appear to be virtually invisible. Patients who need orthodontic treatment, and do not want to go through the discomfort and look of traditional metal braces, can receive a complimentary consultation to see if Invisalign is an option. Invisalign system can treat all the problems that traditional metal braces can treat.
- Set Up a Complimentary Consultation with Dr. Choti
To begin your treatment, we will have to evaluate your smile. Dr. Choti will examine your mouth, and provide you with all the information about the treatment timeline, costs, insurance, and any other questions.
- Your Customized Invisalign Plan
3D Imaging is used to take pictures and impressions of your teeth, that are then send off for the Invisalign system. Dr. Choti will show you the precise movements of your teeth during the treatment process based on the 3D Imaging.
- Receive Your Invisalign System
You will receive your aligners as soon as Invisalign is finished manufacturing them. Your treatment will begin by wearing your aligners for 22 hours per day. It is very rare for the aligners to irritate your cheeks or gums like traditional metal braces, so wearing them should not be a problem. You will only need to remove them for eating, brushing and flossing your teeth.
- A New Aligner Every 2 Weeks
Depending on your customized Invisalign plan, you generally change your aligners every 2 weeks. Each new aligner gradually pulls your teeth into their desired spot.
