The Invisalign Process
The process of Invisalign begins with an initial consultation, where we will digitize your child’s smile and create a customized treatment plan. Next, we’ll send this digital plan and any necessary impressions to a lab where the custom, clear aligners will be created. These aligners will be worn for about twenty hours each day and switched out every one to two weeks. Visits to our office will typically be scheduled every six to eight weeks. Gradually, the teeth will shift into their desired positions and treatment will be complete.
After Invisalign, retainers are commonly used to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back into their previous positions. Our team will recommend proper maintenance depending on your child’s specific treatment plan. Wearing retainers for the recommended time and frequency is critical to ensure optimal results.
Cost of Invisalign
Our team is committed to providing affordable Invisalign to the San Antonio community. Teeth straightening can be a bit intimidating when thinking in financial terms, but we believe that every patient deserves a smile they can be proud of. That’s why we offer in-house financing to divide the cost into manageable monthly payments. We also accept CareCredit® patient financing, which allows you to pay for treatment in full and make payments over an extended period of time.
We also offer comprehensive metal braces as a more traditional alternative to Invisalign. Contact our San Antonio pediatric dentist’s office to schedule an orthodontic consultation and give your child the gift of a straight smile!
