Harrisonburg’s Only Gold Plus Invisalign® Provider
Invisalign® is a set of clear removable aligners that are worn over the teeth. These aligners can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally. Invisalign® is comfortable, convenient, and easy to use.
Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned are more difficult to clean. Over time, this can lead to increased risks of tooth decay and gum disease. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to crack and wear. Straightening with Invisalign® can protect against these issues.
Invisalign® is a non-invasive, aesthetic solution for straightening teeth. If your teeth are crowded, gapped, or misaligned, Invisalign® can give you a healthier, more beautiful smile.
First, you will have a consultation with Dr. Angelopulos. We will determine if you are a good candidate for using Invisalign®. A 3D model is created of your teeth. This model is used to design the steps of your individualized treatment plan. With this model, you can see what your teeth will look like after treatment.
Invisalign® aligners are custom-fabricated for your teeth. About every two to four weeks, you will change to a new, slightly straighter aligner.
Invisalign® patients experience less pain, discomfort, and mouth sores than patients with traditional metal braces. Invisalign® also has a lower risk of plaque buildup during treatment since you can remove aligners for proper brushing and flossing.
At Angelopulos Dental, we can help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile with Invisalign®. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Angelopulos, contact our office.
The most common time to straighten teeth is during the teen years. Permanent teeth have fully developed and issues like overbite, gaps, and misalignment become clear.
Invisalign teen® is designed to provide straighter, healthier teeth without any of these drawbacks of braces.
Invisalign teen® uses a series of clear, custom-fabricated aligners to gently and gradually correct the alignment of your teen’s teeth. Their nearly invisible appearance means most people will not be aware of the treatment.
Invisalign teen® aligners can be removed for eating, dental hygiene, and activities like sports or band. This allows your teen to live a more normal life, keep their mouth healthy, and maintain a higher self-esteem during orthodontic treatment.
In most cases, Invisalign teen® can correct issues with your teen’s smile for about the same investment as traditional braces, and generally requires fewer office visits. For more information or an Invisalign teen® consultation, contact our office.
Gallerite NA1 Invisalign Treatment Design Engine
Patients digital intraoral scans or traditional impressions are sent to Invisalign over the internet or direct mail and a “clincheck” treatment plan design is fabricated. This is the standard process for most all Invisalign Doctors.
Patients of Doctor Angelopulos have their treatment planned and designed through an entirely different process. Patients have their information digitally scanned with the iTero digital scanner, where he and his team are able to see bite force %’s on all teeth to begin designing the best long term healthy tooth position, show a digital simulation of outcome of improving tooth positions, and immediately send Invisalgn the digital scan. Dr. Ange’s extensive training and elite inclusion as a member of the Gallerite advanced Invisalign doctor continuum provides his patients treatment plans to be designed specifically by Dr. Ange through the advanced Gallerite NA1 clincheck engine. This engine is only available to North American Doctors that have achieved Gallerite status, approx.. 900 out of the greater than 26,000 trained Invisalign doctors. This process provides more precise design and outcome of final teeth positions with regard to better function and esthetics to ensure mote ideal treatment results and shorter length of invisalign treatment. This affords Dr. Ange the opportunity to move teeth more precisely, accurately, and efficiently with better result than most other providers.
