In most dental offices, traditional braces can take anywhere from 18-24 months and Invisalign can take 12-18 months. Dr. Susan Ellison has committed to many years of extensive training in Invisalign which has allowed her to cut treatment time down to ONLY 6-9 months for most patients! WOW!
Invisalign® treatment starts with a FREE initial consultation, in person or virtual. Once it is determined that you are a candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Ellison will do a 3D digital scan, an x-ray, and photos which are all included at no additional cost.
Dr. Ellison will create a customized treatment plan for you and a set of unique clear trays will be made to move your teeth to give you the smile you desire. You will be instructed to wear your aligners ALL THE TIME! All day, all night, while sleeping, and only remove to eat if you prefer. After eating, brush, and rinse and put right back in.
You will have 1-2 sets of trays that you will wear each week and change out at home.
Unlike traditional braces, these clear, almost invisible trays are much more attractive. Most people won’t even know you are wearing them. They do not contain any metal brackets or wiring, which can often feel intrusive and uncomfortable in your mouth. Plus, you don’t need to worry about food getting stuck in your braces.
Also, with Dr. Ellison’s training, she is able to get the alignment of the teeth in the most efficient, effective time frame which is less than half the time it would take to achieve this with traditional braces.
Overbite: Upper front teeth cover up the lower teeth when you bite and you can’t see the lower teeth
Underbite: Lower teeth stick out further than the upper teeth.
Crossbite: Upper and lower jaws don’t align the same.
Gap Teeth: Too much space in between teeth.
Open Bite: Upper and lower teeth don’t completely close together.
Crowded Teeth: Too little space in the jaw for teeth to fit in comfortably.
If you are unsure whether Invisalign® is the right option for you, you can schedule an initial complimentary consultation with Dr. Susan Ellison to examine if you are a good candidate for treatment.
Dr. Susan Ellison and her team will schedule check-in visits to monitor your teeth based on your treatment plan and the number of aligners that you have. The goal of these visits is to ensure your progress remains in line with your treatment plan and to place attachments, which are tooth-colored buttons that may be needed on the teeth during the Invisalign treatment to get accurate movements of the teeth. In addition, spaces may need to be created for overcrowding.
