Orthodontists are dentists who, after finishing 4 years of dental school, then went on to orthodontic school for another 2-3 years of extensive training. The only thing our doctors do – all day, every day – is straighten teeth. Dr. Nelson and Dr. Steinhart have treated over 20,000 patients with Invisalign or braces, you are in expert hands.
No, Invisalign treatment isn’t the same wherever you get it. Invisalign is a doctor-driven treatment, each doctor prescribes the specific movement for each tooth of every patient. Invisalign manufactures aligners based on the doctor’s prescription, so the doctor that treats you makes all the difference.
Doctor Nelson and Doctor Steinhart are top 1% Invisalign Providers in the world – they have more experience than 99% of the doctors doing Invisalign. They have treated over 20,000 patients with Invisalign or braces, you are in expert hands.
Treatment times vary depending on your treatment plan and goals. A typical comprehensive plan that includes straightening and full bite correction often lasts around 12-18 months. For limited cosmetic alignment of front teeth, we can often finish these cases in about 6 months.
For our Invisalign treatment our typical appointment interval is about every 10-12 weeks. For our patients in braces, the average time between visits is 5-6 weeks.
