Invisible Braces (Invisalign)

If your issue can be corrected with the Invisalign system, Dr. Martinez will write a detailed treatment plan that determines how each of your aligners will change throughout your program. When you begin treatment, you'll wear each set of aligners in approximately two-week increments. The aligners gently move your teeth into position, and at the end of each two-week period, you "graduate" to the next set of custom aligners. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little. You don't have to wait until you complete treatment to see your smile change - you may start seeing positive changes early in the process.

iTero™ Digital Impressions for Invisalign Patients

Riverpark Dental has raised the bar once again. No more sitting in a chair with your mouth full of impression material.  Great news for people with gag reflex!  Itero.jpgThe iTero takes a digital, 3D image of your teeth allowing you to instantly see the image. The digital image is emailed to the lab and is available in the Invisalign Clincheck system the next day. The accuracy and detail of the iTero scan vs a putty impression is kind of like watching HDTV over standard TV. By removing the ‘clay modeling step’ we have greatly improved the accuracy virtually eliminating the need for rescanning. iTero obsoletes the previous technology overnight.

Imaging quality is superior to results achieved with impressions made with putty. Your dental record is very accurate. Results are immediate and turnaround times are greatly reduced in creating aligners.

With the aid of audio-visual prompts, magnified real-time video, and 3D virtual model articulation during the scanning process, the iTero also functions as an educational feedback device, allowing for immediate adjustment of any deficient preparation areas. The resultant benefits are significant: better fitting aligners, less time in the chair and improved patient comfort.
