There’s never been a better time to straighten your teeth with the most advanced clear aligner in the world. Cherre Orthodontics is proud to be an Advantage Silver Provider of Invisalign clear aligners, which give you a clear, convenient, and comfortable option to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
Invisalign is the orthodontic process of wearing a series of personalized, clear trays called aligners. Dr. Cherre creates a personalized treatment plan for each patient. Each aligner is made to Dr. Cherre's specifications, using Invisalign's state-of-the-art technology, and when worn in the order prescribed, progressively move the teeth to create an optimal, functional bite.
Why Invisalign treatment?
The Invisalign aligners are almost invisible in your mouth so no one will know when you are wearing them. They are treating you invisibly so you can smile all you want during your Invisalign experience! Plus, they are more comfortable than traditional braces since there are no wires or brackets to deal with.
Even more, there are no dietary restrictions since the aligners are removed before eating. Cleaning your teeth is also very simple since there are no wires or brackets and care of the aligners is very easy.
Your Invisalign Treatment Process
Your First Consultation
At your complimentary consultation at our Ellisville orthodontic office, Dr. Cherre will determine if Invisalign is appropriate for you and will diagnose and prescribe a treatment plan accordingly.
Your Custom Treatment Plan
We will use a scanner such as the iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. Then, Dr. Cherre will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.
Each patient is unique, so each Invisalign treatment is planned according to that patient's individual needs. Your treatment time will depend on how much tooth movement is necessary to achieve your desired results.
Your Invisalign Clear Aligners
Your custom-made aligners will be made of Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them during your teeth straightening.
Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, and take them out only to eat, brush, and floss.
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. We may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule checkups at Cherre Orthodontics every six weeks or so.
Taking Care of Your New Smile
When your treatment is complete, ask us about a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.
At Cherre Orthodontics, you’re more than a patient. We personalize your treatment to your lifestyle and love to get to know you on a personal level. Our patients become like family to us and many have sent their children to us, allowing to treat generations of patients and their families and friends.
