DO YOU THINK you or someone you love might be in need of orthodontic treatment? Are you dealing with a lot of teeth crowding or a bad bite? Well, the first thing to do is schedule an initial orthodontic consultation! This crucial appointment will set the stage for any future treatment, but what exactly is it and what should you do to prepare?

What To Expect At Your Consultation

At your initial consultation, you will be greeted by our friendly front desk staff! They will then work with you to complete your Health History paperwork. It is at this time that we can check on any dental insurance for orthodontic benefits. Once your paperwork is complete, we will begin the consultation by taking a few photographs and an xray. The xray is included with the free consultation. From those images, Dr. Wermerson will be able to give you his best recommendations for possible treatment options for you and your lifestyle. We are more than happy to answer any and all questions you may have at that time. 

Before Your Appointment

Call our office at (605)274-0555 to schedule your appointment! Before your appointment, there is no paperwork that will need to be completed prior to your arrival on the day of your scheduled appointment; all paperwork will be completed when you come to our office for your initial consultaiton.

Appearance is often the first thing people think about when considering wearing braces. In fact, in the past, some people decided that theyinvisalign would rather live with misaligned teeth than wear metal braces. Fortunately, there's another option available today. The innovative Invisalign system offers a more discreet orthodontic treatment method, yet it's just as effective as metal and ceramic braces. Dr. Chris Wermerson of Wermerson Orthodontics in Sioux Falls, SD, shares some information on Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Realigning your teeth requires constant pressure. That pressure can come from a traditional wire and bracket system or the aligner trays that the Invisalign system uses. Removable aligner trays made from digital impressions of your mouth fit snugly over your upper and lower teeth. Because the trays are made of clear plastic, they're very unobtrusive.

When you visit our Sioux Falls office for your impressions, we'll use Invisalign's special software to design a series of aligners that will accomplish your straightening goals. Each set in the series is designed to be worn for about two weeks, although you may wear a particular set for a second time at some point in your treatment.

Why should I choose Invisalign?

Invisalign not only offers a more subtle approach to orthodontic treatment but also provides these benefits:

  • Convenience: Invisalign trays are removed when you eat or drink anything other than water. The aligner trays can also be removed for a few hours if you plan to play a sport or attend a special event.
  • Excellent Outcome: Invisalign offers excellent results if you have a mild to moderate orthodontic issues, such as crowding, gaps or bite problems.
  • Simple Oral Hygiene Routine: Keeping your smile bright and cavity-free is as simple as removing your aligners and brushing and flossing as usual.

Transform your smile with Invisalign! Call Dr. Chris Wermerson of Wermerson Orthodontics at (605) 274-0555 to schedule your appointment.
