We live in strange times – gestures once taken for granted – handshakes, hugs, fist bumps – are now taboo; even our smiles are often hidden behind masks. But that doesn’t mean no one is seeing your smile. COVID-19 has meant socially distancing ourselves but it has also meant a boom in social media. Humans are social creatures and we’ve found new and creative ways to connect even while apart.

Selfies, virtual school, virtual meetings, and video chats are happening more than ever before, which means we are even more up close and personal with our smiles. We all want to feel confident on-screen – teens and adults alike. Self-confidence is a major factor in teen development and Invisalign® has been found to increase teen confidence both during treatment and once they’ve achieved the smile they have always wanted.

Now that the stay-at-home orders have been lifted, there is no reason to wait on getting the smile of your dreams for you or your child; and at Wright Orthodontics, we use the technology of Invisalign treatment, to make sure you are as safe as possible while achieving that smile.

Why is Invisalign a great choice right now?

While we are all allowed out and about again, fears are still running high. We still need to be careful about what we touch, where we spend our time, and with whom. Invisalign allows for a more socially distanced approach to orthodontics, while still making sure you get the expertise of a trained and specialized orthodontist like Dr. Randy Wright. To get started, we use a 3D scanner to take images of your teeth and bone structure in order to map out a customized treatment plan and to build custom aligners that will help straighten your smile – invisibly.

Once your treatment plan is put in place, you will receive clear aligners to wear 22 hours a day. We will want to see you for appointments, just like with braces, but with Invisalign, we can space those appointments further out!

We value your time, so to further minimize in-office appointments we have implemented a  remote dental monitoring system, called  Wright Bite Monitoring. This technology allows Dr. Wright to check in on your tooth movement progress weekly.   A unique scan box is given to you at the beginning of treatment for at-home use.   You simply scan your teeth each week, this takes about 1 minute, then submit the scan to Dr. Wright via an app on your phone. He will instruct you if you are ready to advance to the next aligner. This allows closer monitoring of your orthodontic movement, but from the comfort of your home.

While we would rather see each and every one of our patients all the time, we are doing our part to flatten the curve and keep everyone healthy and safe. Invisalign allows us to help you attain the smile of your dreams in the safest way possible – it is the clear choice. Not just any practice can do this, at Wright Orthodontics we have the expertise with both orthodontics and technology to help you get that smile.

There is so much that we’re depriving ourselves of these days, don’t let the smile of your dreams be one of those things. We have flexible financing and low down payments.
