We love Invisalign for more reasons that we can count. It may be because almost all of us here at Advanced Dental Care have undergone the treatment and been amazed by the results or because we have witnessed first hand how many smiles have been transformed by this clear and easy-to-use technology.
This patient chose Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson for her Invisalign makeover, because he is a Gold Plus Invisalign provider with hundreds of hours of training and casework. At the initial consult, the patient discussed her concerns about the look of her smile with Dr. Jorgenson. Not only were there aesthetic concerns, but Dr. Jorgenson also determined she was experiencing both severe crowding and slight overbite which also affect the health of the smile. Our staff performed an iTero digital scan and let the patient know we could correct it all in a little over a year. The patient was ecstatic and wanted to move forward right away.
Before getting stated with the Invisalign treatment, Dr. Jorgenson needed to ensure there would be enough space for the teeth once they were properly aligned. He removed one tooth on each side of the upper arch. Once that tooth removal procedure was completed, the patient was ready to start her trays.
At her first treatment visit, Dr. Jorgenson placed attachments on the teeth to assist with moving the teeth correctly, made sure the initial trays fit properly, and gave instructions on wear. Invisalign trays need to be worn for approximately 22 hours a day and only removed for eating and brushing/flossing to ensure the best results in a timely manner.
The patient started with 2-week wear, switching to the next set of trays in her prescription every 2 weeks. With great on-track results at each subsequent visit, Dr. Jorgenson switched her to 1-week wear. She also chose to use Propel to speed up the process.
In about 15 months, she was finished with treatment and now has an absolutely gorgeous, straight smile she can be proud of! We are so thankful to have been a part of her Invisalign journey.

Whether you’re 4, 40, or 400, it’s always the right time to get a healthier smile with Invisalign! Good dental hygiene habits are essential to maintaining good oral health, but sometimes there is more you can do! Invisalign not only improves the LOOK of your smile, but also improve the HEALTH of your smile! When your teeth are misaligned, you aren’t able to brush and floss to your full potential. You could also be experiencing TMJ or other damage as a result of the alignment of your bite.
When you brush and floss, you aim to remove the tartar and plaque that builds up on your teeth and cause decay. This is why RDH Lisa Thurm stresses the importance of flossing twice a day! If your teeth are not straight, it makes accessing those hard to reach areas even harder. Invisalign, clear braces, can quickly and easily straighten teeth so you can reach your full health potential. (more…)
