See Reasons to Choose Us

First Appointment

When you come into our office for your complimentary orthodontic consultation, Dr. John Oubre or Dr. Matthew Oubre will examine your teeth and your bite so that they can discuss your case with you in full detail. After the examination is complete they will discuss which type of treatment is best for your specific case, and if you’re a candidate for treatment with Invisalign. If Invisalign is best for you, then all that will be needed is a quick 3D digital scan of your teeth to begin the process! Once you’re scan is complete your orthodontist will begin digitally creating your custom treatment plan with Invisalign.

Adjusted for Design

If you want to know when to see an orthodontist because you considered Invisalign, know that you usually only need one design appointment to get started. Once your custom Invisalign aligners are fabricated you will come back to the office to have your trays delivered and your teeth will start moving that day!

Invisalign Aligner Progression

With Invisalign treatment, you will wear each aligner for a full week before moving on to the next aligner customized for your treatment plan. With that being said though, Dr. John Oubre or Dr. Matthew Oubre will give you a large series of aligners when you come to begin your orthodontic treatment and therefore you can continue with your progress on your own schedule to make treatment easily able to fit into your lifestyle and routine.

Fit Adjustments

Invisalign offers flexibility that braces treatment cannot when it comes to how often you need to come to the office. Your Invisalign aligners will be delivered to you know all at your initial delivery appointment and therefore you can continue with your Invisalign progress without having to see us in person very often. However, that doesn’t mean that you won’t need to come into the office. Appointments will be made that are convenient to your schedule for us to ensure the Invisalign algiers still fit properly and that the teeth are moving in the ways they are expected to. 

When to Call Your Orthodontist
Always call your orthodontist if your trays do not fit well. You may find that they rub against the inside of your mouth. Trays that are too small can cause some pain when you wear them. If the aligners are too big, they will slip and even fall out. Lafayette orthodontists will help you get the new aligners you need and make the Invisalign process much smoother.

Look at Our Treatments

Deciding on Invisalign in Lafayette is a great choice. It usually takes just two appointments to get the clear aligners. You then visit our office every one to two weeks to change to a new pair. During each appointment, your orthodontist will ensure the trays fit your mouth properly and comfortably.
