Trust Your Teen's Smile with Schur Orthodontics for Invisalign® Teen in Bellevue, WA

Dr. Jeff Schur and his team outside who offer Invisalign Teen in Bellevue WA
 

Approaching Invisalign® as actual orthodontic treatment.

We believe Invisalign® isn't a straight-teeth-in-a-box solution that can be universally applied. For this orthodontic treatment to work effectively, you must trust an orthodontist who has mastered the knowledge, skills, and experience to complete treatment successfully (and ensure treatment stays successful).

Bellevue orthodontist, Dr. Jeff Schur, takes this philosophy very seriously:

  • Continuously takes advanced education through the Invisalign® Master Course for the best technology and techniques.
  • Only applies scientifically sound methods to ensure the best results for your teen.
  • Understands the ins and outs of Invisalign® to design a unique treatment plan and work through any challenges.
 

The Invisalign® Consultation: What to Expect

Preparation

When you contact our office, our team will get an initial idea of your concerns and to start the preparation process for your teen's Invisalign® evaluation. We will contact your dentist for any current records and we'll verify your insurance coverage, if possible.

Evaluation

This evaluation appointment involves discussing your teen's concerns, goals, and desires. Dr. Schur will evaluate your teenager's bite and discuss potential approaches. We will gather proper records and submit them to Invisalign to start the virtual planning process. Your dentist and other specialists will be notified of Dr. Schur's initial findings, initiating the planning process.

Consultation

The next step is a consultation appointment, where you'll go over a video of your teen's actual tooth movement plan. We can make real-time changes to the virtual treatment during this meeting. The meeting is typically conducted in the office, but Schur Orthodontics also offers remote consultations over the phone and/or computer.

Starting Treatment

Once you approve of the treatment plan, we'll order the aligners and an appointment will be scheduled to start treatment. Follow-up visits are typically set at intervals from 8-12 weeks (based on your teen's needs). At the end of treatment, a set of retainers will be delivered, and follow-up visits will be far less frequent.

"The whole team is kind, professional, and knowledgeable. It is a special place, and I never thought I'd say that about an orthodontics office. My daughter is treated with respect and care, and we're pleased with the course of treatment Dr. Schur and his team have implemented."

We recommend only drinking water with the aligners in. Otherwise, foot and other liquids will pool in the aligners, causing staining and potential damage to the teeth.

We ask your child to go directly to the next pair of aligners in the series. Call us ASAP so we can discuss the plan from there: (425) 747-4477.

Yes! The key to maintaining a good orthodontic result is the proper design of retainers and a retention plan. At Schur Orthodontics, this is done for each patient.

We invite you to read our blog, Retainers: Care and Cleaning, to get the proper care and cleaning instructions to take care of your teen's retainers.

Compliance is very crucial when committing to Invisalign® Teen at our Bellevue orthodontic office.

For optimal results, your teen must wear his/her aligners for 22 hours per day.

Invisalign® is an advanced option in orthodontic treatment, but it is merely an instrument. The key to amazing results is choosing the optimal instrument for each patient, properly designing the treatment, and, of course, your teen's commitment to wearing the aligners properly.

With these factors in mind, we're confident Invisalign® can get the results you and your teen want. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Invisalign® Teen is perfect for anybody who has:
  • Misaligned teeth
  • An improper bite
  • Wearing and breaking of the teeth

If your teen is in need of orthodontic treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Schur and he will determine if Invisalign® treatment is an appropriate option.

Invisalign® costs about the same as traditional braces; however, it depends how complex your teen's case is.

Just like every smile is unique, every budget is unique. That's why we offer convenient payment plans and accept most insurance to help make it easier for you to pursue treatment. Also, we can help optimize your FSA or HSA.

If you're worried you can't afford treatment, please talk to us. We'll work with you to help achieve your teen's smile needs without breaking the bank.

If you or your child has been told you're not a candidate for Invisalign®, that doesn't mean you cannot become one.

For example, we could start you out in braces for a limited time and then switch to Invisalign® aligners to finish out treatment. Regardless of your or your teen's situation, we can help find a solution. Our priority is to get you amazing results.
