To start your Invisalign treatment, call us at (864) 801-3500 (Greer office) or (864) 967-0053 (Simpsonville office) and schedule your free consultation with Dr. Buddy.
Consultation With Dr. Buddy
Like any orthodontic treatment, your new smile kicks off with a complimentary consultation. A member of the Davis Orthodontics team will take digital x-rays and photos of your teeth and face. Then, Dr. Buddy will examine you and develop a diagnosis. He’s a Platinum Invisalign Provider, so he has the knowledge and experience to achieve stunning outcomes using the clear aligners, even in more complex cases. He’ll tell you exactly what you can expect and we’ll chat about the length of treatment, how much it will cost, insurance and answer your questions. Dr. Buddy will even show you what your results will look like with the Invisalign Outcome Simulator.
Create a 3D Image of Your Mouth
Dr. Buddy will use his iTero® scanner to comfortably take high-resolution images of your teeth, jaws and gums. No more goopy, messy molds here! The information will go into our computer program and a 3D model of your mouth will be created. Dr. Buddy will then move each and every individual tooth directly on the screen for superior accuracy and send this prescription to Invisalign.
Pick Up Your Custom Aligners
Invisalign will use Dr. Buddy’s specifications to create a series of clear, plastic, removable aligners that are custom made just for you. You’ll come by the office to pick them up. Wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, taking them out to eat, brush your teeth and floss. The number of aligners varies by patient but most people require between 18 and 30.
Wear New Aligners According to Your Schedule
About every one to two weeks, you’ll pop in a new set of aligners and each time you do, your teeth will move a little closer to their final positions. We don’t need to do adjustments but you’ll come by for a quick progress check every six to eight weeks on average.
Show Off Your New Smile
Once you take out that last set of aligners, you’ll have a gorgeous, healthy new smile! To maintain your results for life, we’ll fit you for a custom retainer that you’ll wear according to Dr. Buddy’s instructions.
