Getting Started with Clear Aligner Therapy

Woman using clear aligners The first step is to meet with Dr. Schulte to determine if clear aligner therapy is the right solution for you. We plan your treatment by taking photos and digital impressions of your teeth and uploading them to specialized SureSmile software.

Dr. Schulte uses the program to plan out the movement of your teeth as you proceed through treatment. Using 3-D printing technology here at our St. Paul, MN dental office, we fabricate several sets of clear aligners for you based on our treatment plan.

Your treatment system includes several sets of Invisalign-type clear aligners that move your teeth, millimeter by millimeter, according to Dr. Schulte’s treatment plan. Wear the first set of clear aligners for two to three weeks, then move to the next set in the series. It's that simple!

Treatment continues this way, with visits to our St. Paul, MN dental office every four to six weeks to monitor your progress and give you your next sets of aligners

Why We Recommend Invisalign

You can see there’s a big difference between Invisalign clear aligner therapy and orthodontic treatment with traditional braces. Here are some other advantages:

  • Discreet – When you straighten your teeth with clear aligners, most people won’t notice you’re wearing them.
  • Comfortable – Clear aligners are made of smooth plastic that won’t irritate your mouth as metal brackets and wires do.
  • Removable – Remove your clear aligners for meals and to brush and floss. Just be sure to wear them at least 22 hours a day to see the fastest results.
