Clear Aligners

What Is Invisalign

What Are clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are a revolutionary treatment option that can straighten and perfect the look of your smile. If your teeth are crooked and crowded, it may be more difficult to take care of them. You may feel embarrassed by your smile and want to make a dramatic change. Clear aligners use clear trays to straighten your teeth, allowing you to avoid the bulk of metal brackets and wires.

Why Are Clear Aligners needed?

You might need clear aligners if your teeth are currently crooked, crowded, or misaligned, or if you have a malocclusion problem. The best way to determine if this treatment is the best option for you is to come in for a consultation. This gives us an idea of whether or not clear aligners are right for your orthodontic needs. Because clear aligners are removable and need to be worn for 22 hours each day, they are best suited to older teens and adults who can commit to treatment.

Who is a good candidate for clear aligners?

We can perform an examination to determine if you might need clear aligners. Most older teens and adults who require orthodontic treatment can, and will, benefit from clear aligners. If you have had orthodontic treatment in the past, it is still just as beneficial to have re-treatment if you never maintained your results. Clear aligners are easy to wear, and are often more comfortable than traditional braces.

What happens during the clear aligner treatment process?

We first take impressions of your teeth, and use these to make new aligner trays. These trays should be worn for about 22 hours everyday. They should be removed whenever you’re eating or brushing your teeth. You will come back into the office after a few weeks to have new trays made for you. You will have many different trays throughout the course of your treatment. Clear aligners can take anywhere from six months to a few years to fully straighten all of your teeth. This invisible orthodontic option is much easier to wear, and a lot more comfortable for patients, than traditional orthodontic options.

If you think you might need or want clear aligners, call our office today and we can get you in for an appointment.

Amin Salvi Dental
Is Now Open!

The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have missed seeing you, chatting with you, sharing stories with you and laughing with you. We are SO excited to finally be able to invite you back to our office!

As you already know, Amin Salvi Dental does not cut corners on safety and technology. We have always prided ourselves in exceeding the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for infection control measures. During this closure, we decided to go above and beyond that by adding further safety measures, which have been outlined below. The comfort and safety of our patients, of our team members, and of our own families remain our top priority.

  • All essential paperwork (including a COVID-19 screening form) along with financial agreements are to be done prior to your appointment. We will be texting and emailing the links for the forms to be filled out at home or on your mobile device. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or feel ill, please reschedule your appointment and call your physician.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car and text or call the office. We will inform you when to enter the office so we can maintain social distancing protocols
  • When entering the office, it is mandatory to wear a mask or face covering. Although county guidelines are not as strict, we maintain this requirement for the safety of everyone. Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we cannot provide masks. Should you require one, we will charge you $1 for the mask.
  • Patients must arrive to their appointment alone without family/friends. A single guardian will be allowed for minors, elderly and those with special needs or requirements.
  • We will be taking your temperature when arriving to our office and recording this in your records.

Here are a few additional things we are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  • We have installed air purification systems in the main operatories
  • We have installed sneeze guards at the check-in and check-out areas. We request that when you are required to talk to the front desk administration, you stand behind those.
  • Before appointments, we will use a medical peroxide pre-rinse which has been proven to help kill virus particles

We will have new scheduling guidelines

You will be hearing from us shortly as we are rescheduling routine hygiene and treatment for everyone. As you can imagine, we have a large backlog of cancelled appointments so we appreciate your patience through this process.

If you have any immediate concerns, we request not to call the office but text us at the office number or email us at office.corona@aminsalvidental.com.

Due to the new protocols for physical distancing in the office, we may have limited availability of appointments. Due to this we require a minimum 48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. This allows other patients, who have been waiting, to be seen. Please be courteous to others.

For many procedures we will also be requiring a reservation fee in advance. This fee will be applied to your deductible or co-pay for the treatment and is not an additional fee of any kind.

We look forward to seeing all of you and catching up on the activities you have been doing to keep busy during this downtime!
