Dr. Kent Phillips is the only Susanville, California Orthodontist to be an Invisalign Provider.
Our Susanville Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry office achieved this distinction by successfully treating decades worth of patients over the years and delivered a smile that they are happy with. We are sure to stay up to date on the latest technological advances within the orthodontic industry and the Invisalign space in particular. Whether you’re interested in traditional braces or a more discrete treatment option, our goal is to provide exceptional care to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional metal braces, particularly for patients who are seeking a more “discrete” treatment option. We scan your teeth using iTero scanning technology to create a 3-D rendering of your bite, which represents a far more accurate impression than a traditional plaster mold could produce. After an accurate impression is created, advanced computer technology produces a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth in order to move them over time. A treatment plan can consist of anywhere from 12-48 aligners, depending on your orthodontic needs. Since Invisalign does not use wires or brackets, this treatment option is “unseen,” virtually undetectable by others. Another advantage of Invisalign is overall treatment time tends to be shorter than with traditional metal braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Every clear aligner in your Invisalign treatment plan is precisely calibrated to move your teeth toward their ideal position. Each aligner should be worn for about 2 weeks before replacing it with the next aligner. (Please return your used aligners on your next visit.) Note: your aligner should only to be removed to eat, brush, floss or moving on with the next aligner. Before you know it, you’ll have the smile you’ve always wanted!
