If you are one of the many people who have been considering Invisalign treatment, you may be wondering if you will still be able to see your dentist. The answer is yes! You can continue to see your dentist for all of your regular check-ups and cleanings. However, you will need to visit your Invisalign doctor in order to get a new set of aligners or anything Invisalign related. Your dentist will be able to help you with any other dental needs while you are undergoing treatment.
When it comes time to get your new set of aligners, your Invisalign doctor will take an impression of your teeth and create a 3-D digital model that allows the doctors to map out the entire course of treatment. This helps them to determine how long your treatment will last, as well as when it’s time for a new set of aligners. After the impressions have been taken, they will be sent off to Invisalign’s labs where technicians fabricate the custom aligners.
Regular Visits To The Dentist and Invisalign Doctor
In addition to being able to see your regular dentist during Invisalign treatment, you may also need to make additional visits to your Invisalign doctor. These visits enable the doctors to check on your progress and make sure that everything is going according to plan. During these appointments, the doctors may make adjustments or order a new set of aligners if they feel it’s necessary.
Overall, while you’ll be visiting your Invisalign doctor more often than you would normally visit your dentist during treatment, there’s no need to worry about having to give up seeing your regular dentist altogether. With proper care and frequent visits, both to your dentist and your Invisalign doctor, you can have a successful outcome with minimal disruption to your dental care routine.
