Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us!

Merry Christmas 

The holidays are a busy time for everyone. Over the Christmas holidays our office will have shortened hours and many of our employees may be out of the office or on vacation. We understand that it can be a difficult time to schedule an appointment in especially if you require emergency treatment or an adjustment, however you can find some temporary fixes online to get you through part of the holidays. You can also call into our answering service to schedule an appointment after the holidays have completed. Getting any orthodontic appliance adjusted immediately is the best way to ensure that your treatment can continue without having to extend the length of your treatments.

Our office is very excited about Christmas and all of our staff are bright and enthusiastic, filled with Christmas cheer. We get excited about the holidays and all of the great things that they can bring such is good food, quality time with family and friends and lots of great gift giving and receiving.

With all of these celebrations going on it can be difficult to focus on your orthodontic treatment. We understand that there is a lot of traveling involved over the course of Christmas so orthodontic appliances can get lost and you can forget about some of the dietary restrictions that you might face if you are wearing braces.

Make sure to remain adamant about your oral care and to avoid some of the foods that have been listed on our website as being harmful to people wearing braces. These types of food can get caught in braces and also cause damage so they are really best to avoid even though it is the holiday season. For lost orthodontic appliances make sure that you call our offices immediately after you have lost your appliance so that we can order you a new one as soon as we get back.

This will ensure that your orthodontic treatment is not extended. It is important to keep track of your orthodontic appliances over the holiday season to help avoid future expenses.

For a list of our holiday hours or to schedule an appointment over Christmas when you are off work or off school feel free to call into our office to see when we can schedule you in. We are currently taking appointments through e-mail answer our by phone. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign Explained 

Becoming familiar with the full process of Invisalign will help you to understand the treatment process. Many people are extremely hesitant to see an orthodontist or begin straightening their teeth because of the stigma that is attached with braces and other forms of orthodontic appliances.

Invisalign offers up freedom of choice to patients by giving them a treatment option that works faster and is also far less noticeable than traditional orthodontic treatment. Here is the process of how Invisalign works.

Invisalign

Speaking with an Invisalign provider: most orthodontist today can offer Invisalign as a treatment option but it’s very important that you see an experienced Invisalign preferred provider as they are knowledgeable with the costs, scheduling and the process. It is important to note that Invisalign can be more expensive than traditional forms of braces but it is also far more convenient throughout treatment. With an investment such as Invisalign it’s very important that you meet with an orthodontist that you are comfortable with and knows the process well. Treatment can be a big investment and is not a decision to be taken lightly. Your orthodontist will be able to determine if Invisalign is a good treatment option for you and can also walk you through the process. It is important to note that some patients will not qualify for treatment with Invisalign and may require other forms of orthodontic treatment before they can begin this type of treatment.

Scanning and imaging: after you have decided to undergo Invisalign treatment your doctor will begin to create x-rays, pictures and specialty moulds or impressions of your teeth. All of this data will be sent off to the manufacturer where a 3-D model will be created of your teeth. Your orthodontist can then work through a computer simulation to map out your entire treatment plan as well as show you how your teeth will look after each stage of the treatment.

Receiving your first aligners: aligners will then be manufactured to begin your treatment. The aligners are created using BPA free plastic that is extremely strong and also much more comfortable than traditional braces. You will need to wear your aligners for around 22 hours per day in order to stay on track with your treatments. The aligners will gradually shift your teeth into place and need to be changed out every two weeks on average to advance to the next stage of your treatment.

Regular checkups: you will have to go to regular checkups every six weeks to see how your treatment is progressing. At your appointment you can pick up new aligners as well as ask any questions to your orthodontist about your treatment. As long as you continue to change your aligners every two weeks and wear them for the prescribed amount of time you should be able to complete your treatment just as it was computer modeled.

Given that Invisalign entails a substantial investment, it’s imperative that you don’t cut corners when it comes to choosing your doctor. Dr Panucci has a wealth of experience in providing orthodontic treatments including Invisalign. You can read more abour Dr Panucci by clicking here.
