Consider Invisalign® to achieve a perfectly straight smile!
Dr. Larry Schmakel is a Certified Invisalign® Provider.
If you're interested in straightening your teeth, consider Invisalign®.
Removable! Invisalign® is a series of invisible aligners that can be removed when you eat, brush, or floss.
Comfortable! The aligners are comfortable, with no abrasive metal wires or parts.
Convenient! Invisalign® aligners usually mean you'll spend less time at the dentist's office, because there is no need for adjustments.
Invisible! No one can tell you're wearing them!
If Invisalign® is right for you, your treatment process will go like this:
1. Meet with Dr. Larry Schmakel. Discuss your questions and concerns.
Dr. Larry Schmakel will consult with you, answer any questions you have about treatment, payment, and whatever else you're concerned about.
2. Dr. Larry Schmakel will create a custom treatment plan just for you!
Images, impressions, and x-rays are taken of your teeth, which will be used to design a custom plan for your treatment. You'll see how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment. Typical treatment usually takes about a year for adults. For teens, the length of treatment is similar to that of braces.
3. Receive Your Custom Aligners
Aligners are made for you specifically, using 3D computer imaging technology. Your aligners are comfortable and smooth. They won't irritate your cheeks and gums (unlike traditional metal braces). Wear them throughout the day, and they will guide your teeth gently and gradually into place. Dr. Larry recommends that Invisalign patients schedule a teeth cleaning every three months.
4. Wear a New Aligner Every Two Weeks
You'll receive a new set of aligners about every two weeks. Dr. Larry Schmakel will schedule occasional checkups with you, so that he can monitor your treatment. It's best to wear your aligners for 23 hours a day during the length of your treatment. You should not be without your aligners for more than 30 minutes at a time. Each stage brings you closer to your perfect smile!
5. Time to Smile!
Once your treatment is complete, you'll be smiling more than ever! Dr. Larry Schmakel will fit you for retainers to keep your smile looking great. And don't forget to smile!
