If you choose Invisalign with Matsumoto Orthodontics & Periodontics, you’re in the best hands. Here’s what you can expect:
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works in a series of custom-designed, high-quality clear plastic trays that fit snugly around your teeth. They apply the perfect amount of pressure to guide your teeth into alignment. With each new set of clear aligner trays that you wear, your teeth move one step closer to their ideal positions!
Let’s break down the steps of the Invisalign process:
Step 1: Come meet us!
If you live in Wilmington, NC, you’ll get started at our Porters Neck orthodontist office!
We’ll take a digital, 3D scan of your teeth with the advanced iTero® device, and we’ll get to show you a simulated preview of your beautiful end results before you even begin treatment. We’ll take a CBCT scan and some diagnostic photos of your smile, and we’ll discuss your needs, preferences and goals from treatment. Dr. Matsumoto will use all of this info to design your 100% personalized Invisalign treatment plan!
Step 2: Get your custom aligners!
Once we create your personalized treatment plan, we can get started! Your clear aligners will be custom-designed just for you. You’ll wear your first set of aligners for one to two weeks, depending on your personalized treatment plan.
It’s important that you keep your clear aligners in place for 20 to 22 hours, so they can work their magic!
Step 3: Change your aligners and smile!
Approximately every two weeks, you’ll switch your current set of aligners out for a new set of aligners. You’ll wear your clear aligners day and night, only taking them out to brush your teeth, floss, and clean your aligners. It’s that simple! Just wear your clear aligners as instructed in your treatment plan, and watch your smile gradually transform day after day.
Your aligners are virtually invisible, so you can confidently show off your smile makeover as it unfolds.
Step 4: Experience the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Fast-forward a few months, and ta-da! Your Invisalign journey has come to an end, unveiling a smile as bright as the Wilmington sun. You put in the hard work and you’re reaping the rewards! Now you’ll move into the retention phase of orthodontic treatment .
You’ll start wearing your retainer right away, full-time, for about six months. Wearing your retainer as instructed ensures that your teeth stabilize and maintain their beautiful new alignment for decades to come.
What is the cost of Invisalign?
Treatment isn’t one-size-fits-all! Your treatment preferences and payment preferences are unique to you. At Matsumoto Orthodontics & Periodontics, we offer flexible financing with in-house payment plans, and outside financing with LendingPoint.
At your complimentary consultation, we’ll discuss your needs to work out a financial plan that makes you feel comfortable. We want a beautiful, healthy smile to be affordable and accessible for you.
