Questions to Ask Your Dentist About Invisalign

Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth - VA

When you first decide to ask whether Invisalign is right for you, you will likely set up a consultation with Dr. Folck at his Virginia Beach dental practice. During this consultation, Dr. Folck will decide explain the Invisalign procedure, and you can ask anything you want about his method for carrying it out. It is important that you leave your appointment knowing enough about Invisalign to feel comfortable going through with it, and for this, you need to ask the right questions.

Some questions to ask your dentist before starting Invisalign:

  • How long will my treatment last?
    The length of the treatment varies from person to person, but is usually 7-12 months.
  • Will my case require Interproximal Reduction?
    Interproximal Reduction involves shaping your teeth to make them slightly narrower.
  • What happens if I lose an aligner?
    Some plans possibly could let you replace a certain number of Invisalign aligners for free; others may charge you for losing aligners.
  • Are mid-course refinements and corrections included in the fee?
    At the beginning of your Invisalign procedure, the dentist will have some idea of what your aligners will look like at every stage in the process. However, these plans may change if your teeth don’t respond as expected.
  • Do you offer post-treatment whitening?
    After several months of Invisalign, you may find that your teeth will benefit from a whitening session.

At Virginia Beach Invisalign, we believe in tailoring our Invisalign process to the individual needs of each patient. We know that no two orthodontic cases are exactly the same, which is one of the reasons we prefer Invisalign: the modeling and adjustment technology guarantees that every patient’s plan is customized to their specific dental requirements. When you use Invisalign with us, you can be sure we’ll treat you as an individual.

Invisalign can improve the health and appearance of your teeth, and give you a new appreciation for your own smile. To set up an initial consultation for your Invisalign today, give Virginia Beach Invisalign a call at (757) 428-7440.
