How to Prepare for Your Consultation With an Invisalign Dentist

Invisalign Dentist Lancaster, PA

An Invisalign dentist helps people who have teeth alignment issues. Many of these folks are turned off by the idea of having conspicuous metal braces in their mouth, and that prevents them from getting the treatment they need. Many would rather live with poorly aligned teeth than endure the attention braces draw to a person's teeth. Thanks to modern dental innovations like Invisalign, it is now possible for anyone to straighten their teeth without drawing any attention to the prosthetic being used.

What does an Invisalign dentist do?

An Invisalign dentist has lots of experience installing clear braces like Invisalign. These devices work using the same principle as traditional metal braces. The tray applies a constant force to the person's teeth, slowly pushing them closer to the desired position.

Preparing for an appointment with an Invisalign dentist

1. Get ready for the evaluation

The first step towards getting Invisalign braces is a consultation with a dentist. The patient should be prepared to fill out forms and answer questions about their dental history. Dentists recommend getting to the clinic five to ten minutes before the appointment to avoid feeling flustered during the evaluation.

The dentist will likely take an impression of the person's mouth during this evaluation. It gives them a better idea of the issues that need to be addressed and what type of orthodontic device would work best. Invisalign is not always an option. Certain orthodontic issues are best addressed with traditional braces.

Other patients might need to get other treatments before the Invisalign treatment starts. A tooth might need to be extracted or the person might need to wear spacers to make the treatment more effective. These are the types of things the patient should be prepared to deal with during the evaluation.

2. Come up with a list of questions

Most people will not remember all the question they have regarding the treatment during their appointment, so try writing it down. Patients should find out how long the treatment will take and how long it has to be worn each day to be effective. The more the patient understands about the procedure, the easier it becomes for them to make an informed decision if Invisalign is right for them.

3. Figure out finances

People who are interested in Invisalign should contact their insurance provider and find out what will be covered prior to their evaluation. It gives them one less thing to worry about during the appointment.
