First, we’ll meet with you for a consultation to see whether Clear Aligner Therapy is the best choice for your needs. We will examine your mouth to determine the health of your gums and to check your teeth for crowding and gaps. If Clear Aligner Therapy is the best course of action, we will then discuss the goals you have for your smile, and work with you to create a treatment plan.
The next step is to map your mouth with a series of digital images, and take an impression (mold) of your teeth, which will be adjusted to make sure your teeth have the best alignment possible on the mold. After this is done, we’ll send these impressions (along with the digital images) off to a laboratory that specializes in creating your clear aligners, and soon you’ll receive your first several sets to begin treatment.
Once you have your aligners, we’ll examine the fit and alignment to be certain that everything looks good to continue with treatment. We will provide you with instructions for the use of your new aligners, and you’ll begin wearing them each day, typically for 20-22 hours at a time. About every two weeks you’ll switch to a new set of aligners, and you’ll visit our office about every six weeks to pick up the next series of sets, at which time we’ll check progress to make sure your teeth are on track.

Great office! The staff are friendly and well organized. They are not pushy at all and do a great job educating me as to what is going on with my teeth. I came from another dentist who had lied to me about a cavity that didn't exist and I am so grateful to have found an honest dentist to work with.
My son came here and had his wisdom teeth out last year and Natasha at the front desk was awesome! We loved them so much we changed his old dentist to Dr. Hanna. (Such a nice guy!) Natasha made our transition so easy. We couldn’t be happier!
From the employees at the front desk to Dr.Hanna I was treated with respect, kindness and compassion. I was surprised at how fluid and fast the staff was at getting my X-rays and being seen. I will definitely be visiting the dentist more often now and would highly recommend to family and friends. Thank you Santee dental
