Invisalign® and 3m clarity aligners
Drs. A. & P. Hodges are both Invisalign® certified and excited to offer patients of all ages Invisalign® and 3m clarity aligner treatment.
The Invisalign® and 3M Clarity Aligner process consists of a scan of your mouth with our state-of-the-art intra-oral scanner (no impressions required). The digital scan is then sent directly to Invisalign® over the internet. Drs. A. & P. Hodges will review and customize the ClinCheck to obtain the most esthetic smile and stable bite for you. Once the ClinCheck is submitted, the Invisalign® aligners will be fabricated and mailed to the office within 1-2 weeks. The overall process from scanning to the delivery of your Invisalign aligners can take 5-6 weeks. The Invisalign® delivery appointment consists of putting "attachments", or tooth colored composite, on certain teeth that require a better handle in order for the Invisalign® aligners to grab the teeth and move them. We like to have our patients switch the Invisalign® aligners out every week which results in quicker tooth movement and cleaner, clearer Invisalign® aligners. Sometimes, we will need to attach tooth colored hooks on teeth for you to wear rubberbands to obtain the best bite possible. We look forward to having the opportunity to meet you and answer any questions you may have about Invisalign® treatment.
