If you are hesitant about straightening your teeth with the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces, ask Dr. Lautt about Invisalign® in Ventura, California. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gently straighten your smile over time.

Consultation
When you come in for your consultation appointment, our orthodontist will speak with you about your orthodontic needs and goals. In addition, he will examine your teeth and bite to determine whether Invisalign is the right choice for you.

Treatment Plan
Our orthodontist will use a digital scanner to take 3D images of your teeth. Using these images, your treatment plan will be mapped out. Your treatment plan will include things like the projected treatment time and the exact movement of your teeth.

Invisalign Aligners
Your aligners will be custom made for your specific needs. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so you can smile with pride during treatment! We recommend that you wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. Remove your aligners when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth.

Straightening Progress
Each set of aligners will gently move your teeth towards their optimal positions. Our orthodontist may recommend that you progress to the next set of aligners every week. Your orthodontic checkup appointments should occur about every six weeks.

After Treatment
After your Invisalign treatment is complete, we may recommend that you wear a retainer to stabilize the new positions of your teeth.
