A clear, comfortable, and removable method for straightening teeth.
The clear solution for straighter teeth. Invisalign is the world’s most advanced, clear mold for teeth alignment available to patients who want a straighter smile without the commitment of metal braces. Make an appointment for a consultation and get the confident smile you’ve always wanted with Invisalign.
The Invisalign system is changing the way we straighten teeth. It is the comfortable, removable, and almost invisible alternative to braces. Invisalign consists of a series of aligners that gradually move teeth into position. Every year, the research and development team find new ways to improve how the Invisalign system works.
Treatment starts with a physical impression or digital scan of your teeth that is used to create a 3D model. Data is then transferred to dental technicians who work with your doctor to create a digital treatment plan based on your doctor’s prescription. The proposed plan is sent back to the doctor for review or modification and approval. Once approved, the data is moved to an automated plant where each individual aligner is custom fabricated using Align Technology and 3D printing.
When you choose Invisalign, you will receive a series of aligners to change at home every two weeks. Visit your doctor roughly every two months for a check-up and to track progress of aligners.
Wash your hands with soap and water, handling only one aligner at a time. Clean both the inside and the outside of each aligner, using a soft toothbrush and toothpaste to clean. Each aligner is marked with a U or an L for upper and lower followed by the stage number. To insert your aligner, gently press over your front teeth and use your fingertips to apply gentle pressure over your molars until the aligner snaps into place. Do not bite aligners into position as that may cause damage.
Your aligners work best when worn for 20-22 hours a day. You can drink cool water when wearing them, but if you are eating or drinking anything other than water, you will need to remove the aligners to protect them from damage. Drinking anything other than water can discolor your aligners.
Ideally you should brush or floss after every meal, but if you don’t have a toothbrush with you, rinse your mouth and clean your aligners by holding them under warm running water. Always store your aligners in a case to prevent loss and damage.
Removal is simple. Use your fingertip on the inside of your back molar to slowly pull the aligner from your teeth. Repeat on the other side and then remove your aligner. Let your doctor know if you have difficulty removing your aligners.
When starting a new set of aligners, switch to your new set in the evening. Rinse the new aligners and wear them for at least 12 hours straight. If you feel discomfort ask your doctor if you should take an over-the-counter pain reliever. New aligner discomfort usually subsides in a few days. Ask your doctor if you have any other concerns, and enjoy the confidence of your new smile.
Today I had an appointment for some dental work and finally had the privilege of having the new dentist do my dental work. Dr. Nick Sabel and Dr. Volm now can provide a quicker service to their patients. I was very pleased with the service I received today from Dr. Sabel and I'm glad that Dr. Volm chose him to work together at the same practice. The entire staff at the office is super! Keep up the good work!
Excellent Service as Usual
The office ladies were courteous and sincere with their welcoming me to the office. I was greeted with smiling faces and cheerful attitudes. Renee was my x-ray tech, hygienist and assistant. She also made me feel very welcomed and friendly. She did her job very professionally and knows her job well which allows her to answer your questions accurately and in layman terms. DDS Sable is the best. He's the reason I came to your office. A man of integrity, honesty, generosity, compassion and a whole bunch more of positive character traits. And to top it off he does topnotch dentistry work.
Review of My First Visit to Your Office
I've been coming here for awhile now and have never had a bad thing to say. The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I've had gum issues, which lead to teeth issues, my whole life. I like Dr. Volm's approach and making sure I understand and that everything's being taken care of, to Jessica, my hygienist helping me with ways to control the issue.
The office is well run: friendly, very efficient and appointments are on time. Dr. Volm is one of the great ones. His "chair-side manner" is very professional but soothing and I know that his dental work is among the best. He is very concerned with patient comfort, care costs and results.
A+ Dentist and Staff
I was originally referred to Dr. Volm's practice by a co worker several years back. What a lucky referral it turned out to be. The quality of care is outstanding and the staff is like family. As a care giving business I have never seen ALL staff members relate to their clients as they do. They are genuine in their relationships and professional in practice. An outstanding experience, rare in today's world.
What A Dental Practice Should Be – A Model For Industry
The staff are friendly and they establish a caring and family atmosphere. Everyone is very professional and all procedures are clearly explained. Dr. Volm and his staff are concerned not only about your oral health, but also about your overall health and well-being. They really listen to you, something that is become less common in today\'s health care environment. I have been going to Dr. Volm for over 10 years. He is an outstanding dentist and I highly recommend him and his dental assistants.
Professional and Friendly
I drive a long way to see this Dental office. Dr. Volm and his staff are excellent, caring health care professionals that do a great job with your teeth! Jessica is an excellent hygienist who is gentle but thorough. If you have issues with sensitivity Jessica looks for ways to make sure you are comfortable in her care. I highly recommend this dental office. I saw Dr. Sabel today and was very happy with his care and direction for my dental care. This is a great place and worth the drive for me.
High Quality Care for Patients
Been going here for many years -- Dr. Volm is very patient with my unfounded fear of dentists! The staff is always friendly, caring, and helpful.
