Covid-19 Update

August 31, 2020

Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and while many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety! Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and this is one area where we are continually making improvements.  Besides our standard infection control procedures, we have made several other office changes to keep you safe. We understand that some of you may want to delay or reschedule your appointments and we are happy to do this for you. Please give us a call and we will find a time that is convenient. With our additional safety procedures in place and your cooperation we feel that we can provide great care in a safe environment.

 Some of our new procedures:

We complete a pre-screening questionnaire the day before all appointments. We ask our patients to wait in their car until the time of their appointment so that we limit the number of people in the office at any given time. We take temperatures as soon as patients arrive in the office and require all patients to wear masks while not in a treatment room. The clinical team wears two masks as well as a face shield to protect our patients. And, we have reconfigured the front desk to include plexiglass barriers and “stand stations” to show where patients should stand to follow social distancing requirements. In between appointments we are using hospital grade disinfectant to clean all surfaces in both our treatment rooms as well as in the front office, bathrooms and reception area, and these areas are being disinfected on the hour. Finally, Dr. Andy regularly reviews the latest updates on how to best manage patient safety as we learn more about the virus.

We look forward to continuing to provide you with great care in the safest way possible during these unique times!

Clear aligners covering a lower arch of teeth

Invisalign

Teeth that are out of alignment affect your appearance, impact the function of your bite, and affect your oral health.

Invisalign® offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces that can benefit adolescents and adults alike.

A Treatment Plan That Works With You

Virtually Unnoticeable

The clear aligner trays used for Invisalign are designed with a custom fit to be virtually unnoticeable when you are wearing them. Those around you probably will not notice that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Designed For Comfort

The metal wires and brackets of traditional braces can rub, snag, and irritate the soft tissue inside of your mouth. The Invisalign aligners are fabricated from a flexible, laser-cut plastic with smooth edges to provide a comfortable fit.

No Restrictions

Trying to brush and floss while wearing metal braces is no small task. But clear aligner trays are removable, which means you can brush and floss normally. Unlike other orthodontic devices, this one allows you to continue to enjoy all of your favorite crunchy and sticky foods.

Achieve a Straighter Smile with Invisalign

Straighter teeth are a common dental goal for a large number of cosmetic dentistry patients. But many adults and teens are discouraged by the idea of visiting an orthodontist. The conspicuous metal wires and brackets of traditional orthodontics can prevent patients from undergoing important dental treatment that can improve both their oral health and appearance. 

For many years, a trip to the orthodontist was the only option for straighter teeth, but advancements in the field of orthodontics have made dental treatment much more convenient and accessible. Dr. Andy Maples in Loveland, CO, offers Invisalign to qualifying patients. Virtually no one will be able to notice you are wearing clear aligners while receiving treatment, but they will notice the gorgeous results.

The virtually invisible aligners allow patients a number of benefits over traditional braces. The Invisalign system makes it easy to maintain excellent oral hygiene during treatment. The removable aligners also give you the freedom to enjoy all the foods you love.

The dental hygienists are always pleasant and in this visit, Theresa, was especially helpful giving tips on keeping my teeth healthy. We discussed how different drinks can affect the health of my teeth and the importance of drinking water after acidic drinks. Dr. Andy is polite and friendly. He will visit with you and discuss any issues you may have at length.

​Are You a Good Candidate?

Although Invisalign can treat most cases of misalignment, ranging from mild to complex, the only certain way to determine if you are eligible is to visit our Loveland, CO, office for a consultation. During your exam, Dr. Maples will take a panoramic x-ray, which clearly shows how your teeth are aligned as well as their appearance and shape. Dr. Maples will also check your bite to determine which adjustments are needed. In general, Invisalign is a great option for patients who have minor to moderate alignment issues, including:

  • An underbite 
  • A crossbite 
  • An overbite 
  • An open bite 
  • A gapped smile 
  • A crowded smile 

In order for your treatment to be successful, you will have to be committed to wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours per day.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom-fitted clear aligners. Each Invisalign aligner represents a different stage of treatment as your teeth move into their ideal positions. Treatment is simple. All you have to do is wear each aligner for approximately two weeks, between 20 and 22 hours each day, before switching to the next ones in the set. You will also need to attend regular check-ups every four to six weeks at our Loveland, CO, dentistry practice so that your dentist can monitor your progress.

Maintaining a Healthy Bite After Invisalign

Dr. Maples and his team want your results to look and feel great for years to come. We offer Vivera® retainers, which are worn on a nightly basis after you complete treatment. These retainers closely resemble Invisalign trays and are extremely durable. 

If your retainers get lost or damaged, you are covered because we usually order four sets of retainers. For your convenience, we also include the cost of the retainers in your Invisalign treatment so that you automatically get the best retainers available on the market with no surprise costs. 

By wearing your retainer as directed, maintaining your at-home dental hygiene routine, and visiting our office for a checkup at least every six months, you can maintain your beautiful new smile for a lifetime.

​Start on the Path to a Straighter Smile

Dr. Maples has received extensive training to provide this advanced treatment for patients and can guide you on your journey towards the best possible results. Flexible financing is available to help patients better manage out-of-pocket costs. In many cases, Invisalign qualifies for at least partial coverage through insurance plans. You can count on our staff to work with you to make this popular and immensely beneficial treatment a fit for your budget.
