Almost all orthodontic patients are great candidates for Invisalign. It works for most ages, from teens to adults of any age! Treatment with Invisalign involves a series of customized flexible trays, called “aligners”. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually—week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Dr. Foote’s assistants will initially take a scan of your mouth with the newest Itero scanner, and this digital image is sent to Invisalign for the development of your personal trays. The trays are worn night and day, but because they are easily removed, your dental hygiene is much better than with traditional braces; brushing and flossing is a breeze!
Dr. Foote has seen the outstanding results that Invisalign can provide and strongly believes in the ability of Invisalign to straighten teeth, creating a beautiful healthy smile, and giving many adults and teens the confidence they’ve wanted for years, all without metal braces! Dr. Foote takes the individual needs of each patient into account while developing a customized treatment plan at a reasonable fee. She is an “Elite Invisalign Provider”; this designation is awarded by Align Technology, the company which makes Invisalign products. Based on Dr. Foote’s patient volume and depth of experience with treating patients’ orthodontic needs, you can be certain that she is comfortable with the newest developments that Invisalign offers. Dr. Foote also keeps current by attending many Continuing Education courses offered by Invisalign. She also teaches local dentists and hygienists about how to work best with Invisalign by holding lectures several times a year in her office for these professionals and using her own cases to explore treatment.
Dr. Foote’s teenage patients have had fantastic success with Invisalign Teen. Many parents express concern about compliance, and this has not been a problem. Teens are proud to have it and their overall happiness means they usually finish orthodontic treatment more quickly and with much better hygiene.
