Dr. Beitchman is Your Certified San Antonio and Boerne, TX Invisalign Provider
For more than 20 years, Dr. Beitchman has straightened smiles and improved lives using the clear, comfortable alternative to braces—Invisalign!
These days, there are cases that would have required surgery in the past that Dr. Beitchman can treat today with Invisalign.
What is it?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment, including Dr. Beitchman.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in our San Antonio or Boerne orthodontic offices getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
During your Invisalign consultation, Dr. Beitchman will review a thorough list of your smile needs and the goals we hope to achieve. We are careful to review the entire process when using clear aligners; this includes home-care instructions, the proper and consistent use of the aligners, and what you need to do to achieve optimal results.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit Dr. Beitchman about once every six to 12 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Retention after treatment is complete is very important, and we offer a variety of retainers to match your individual needs.
Why choose Beitchman Orthodontics for your Invisalign treatment?
While it is true that both general dentists and orthodontists offer Invisalign, Dr. Beitchman is unique in the significant amount of time he puts in during the planning phases of treatment. Many less experienced doctors have to do one or more refinements after the initial treatment is done to get the desired results. However, in our office, we almost never have refinements because of the extra attention to detail Dr. Beitchman puts in during the treatment plan phases! This means you complete treatment in much less time and without the extra refinements or changes that many other doctors do and may not tell you about.
