Orthodontics San Diego

A process as streamlined as the aligners themselves

San Diego Smile Pros is a VIP Platinum Plus Invisalign Provider, which means we treat more patients with Invisalign than most other practices. Thanks to our case experience, cutting-edge technology and bright, comfortable office, your Invisalign journey will be convenient and enjoyable.

Step 1

Come in for a consultation

At this visit, we’ll take low-dose, digital x-rays and board-certified orthodontist Dr. Matthew Durschlag will perform a comprehensive exam. He’ll walk you through your diagnosis, chat with you about your concerns and goals, and provide you with his treatment recommendations. Finally, a team member will go over your Invisalign cost, insurance coverage and our financing options.

Step 2

Receive a custom treatment plan

We’ll take comfortable, quick digital dental impressions to create a virtual, 3D model of your mouth. Dr. Durschlag will plan your treatment on the computerized model, determining the precise path each individual tooth will take and creating ideal alignment from every angle. He’ll even show you a preview of your future smile using the Invisalign Outcome Simulator.

Step 3

Pick up your Invisalign aligners

The Invisalign lab will use 3D-printing technology to program a series of custom clear aligners with Dr. Durschlag’s planned tooth movements. When your aligners are ready, you’ll start wearing them for about 22 hours per day, only removing them to brush, floss, eat and drink.

Step 4

Wear new aligners every week

You’ll switch to the next Invisalign tray in your series every one to two weeks, depending on your treatment plan. While Invisalign doesn’t require adjustments, you’ll come in for a quick visit approximately every eight weeks, so Dr. Durschlag can keep tabs on your progress. Prefer fewer in-person checkups? Ask us about virtual checkups!

Step 5

Reveal and Maintain Your New Smile

When you take out your last set of Invisalign aligners, you’ll have perfectly straight teeth and a strong, stable bite. The first order of business will be celebrating your results! Then, to maintain your new smile for life, we’ll take one last set of digital impressions to create custom clear retainers for you.
