How do I get started?
If you are considering cosmetic dentistry procedures, the first step is to arrange a consult with our Polaris dentist team. We’ll take a look at X-rays and perform a visual inspection of your oral cavity. We may take an impression of your mouth as well to get you started with Invisalign. We use the upper and lower impressions to determine to where the teeth should move. Then, based on our information, we can develop a treatment course for your new smile.
What happens next?
Some procedures can be handled within one or two visits. Dental implants, crowns, bonds, and such take little time. Invisalign is a bit different if a straight smile and better bite is the end goal. Invisalign uses a series of different sized trays which are swapped out at various stages in order to guide your teeth into alignment. Care for your teeth or cosmetic dental devices with ease. Brush twice (or more) each day and floss, and take the opportunity to brush and rinse off your trays before wearing them again. Typically, trays are worn all day except for when you eat.
How to care for your smile
Your smile needs daily brushing and flossing, and you should try to stay away from foods that may stain your enamel. When wearing Invisalign trays, it is important to avoid foods that tend to stain teeth. Foods can sit on your teeth and get into your Invisalign trays. Stick to water when possible and to foods that will keep your teeth and gums in great shape or brush your teeth after eating meals. Most trays are worn for up to two weeks before a new tray is necessary for your treatment plan. Keep a travel-sized toothbrush with you at all times in order to keep your trays clean when you’re away from home.
