Investing in Invisalign for Chaska, MN

There is just something so appealing about a smile with perfectly straight teeth. However, the thought of going through the orthodontic treatment necessary to achieve such a smile may not be as appealing. Well, here’s another thought—you don’t have to wear a mouthful of metal braces to have straight teeth. With Invisalign from Chaska Dental Center, hardly anyone will know that you’re wearing braces until you’ve completed treatment and your smile says it all!

At Chaska Dental Center, Dr. Swingdorf is an Invisalign Preferred Provider, so you can be certain that the outcome of your orthodontic treatment will be a beautifully straight smile. Dr. Swingdorf works closely with the Invisalign lab to develop a treatment plan that will gradually but effectively move your teeth into proper alignment.

What is Invisalign?

As the name suggests, Invisalign is practically invisible. The system uses a sequential series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth. Your path to a straight smile begins with a thorough assessment of your oral health. Any extenuating problems—cavities or gum disease, for example—will need to be taken care of before orthodontic treatment begins. Then, we’ll assemble a comprehensive collection of x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth. Carver cosmetic dentist Dr. Swingdorf will use these to develop a treatment plan that will be the blueprint Invisalign needs to fabricate your customized aligners.

The aligners arrive at the office of your 55318 dentist as sets—one for the teeth along your upper arch and one for the teeth along your lower arch. In order to complete your orthodontic treatment in a timely manner, the aligners will need to be worn every day for about 22 hours. Each set will be worn for 14 consecutive days, and then you’ll advance to the next set in the series. Of course, Dr. Swingdorf will want to see your periodically to check your progress, but otherwise that’s all there is to wearing Invisalign. Stay on schedule and a beautifully straight smile will be yours in a year or two!

The Advantages of Invisalign

Aside from being practically invisible, Invisalign comes with other advantages over traditional braces. Most importantly, they are removable. When you want to have breakfast, lunch or dinner, just remove the aligners and eat whatever you like—there are no restrictions. Also, maintaining your regular at-home oral hygiene routine is easier, too. With the Invisalign clear plastic braces removed, you can brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day as you normally would. You’ll also need to keep your aligners clean, too, which is easy to accomplish with brushing and a quick rinse with warm water.

Invisalign clear plastic braces are appropriate for teenagers as well as adults. For more information about Invisalign, contact Chaska Dental Center, the cosmetic dentist Carver, Chanhassen, Victoria, Shakopee, Eden Prairie, and surrounding communities trust for complete dental care.

I brought my daughter, 10 years old, to the clinic yesterday. Was blown away by how east to work with all of the staff. Wendy at the front desk was wonderfully warm and inviting. The hygienist we had, Erin, was wonderful with my daughter. She was very engaging. We had Dr. Swingdorf as our dentist and he was amazing. Talked to my daughter instead of to me, which I LOVE! He addressed all of our concerns and was very approachable. Would recommend them to anyone looking for an outstanding dental clinic!

I want to state how fortunate I am - and I am certain everyone else of Dr. Meschke's patients - to have such an outstanding and most capable person as Dr. Tom Meschke as our dentist. I am certain Dr. Meschke has to be one of the very best dentists in the entire state of Minnesota. He is personable with his patients, he is genuinely interested in correcting and resolving your dental issue. I know he has made a big difference in my dental health from where I started with him about 20 years ago to where I am today which is in positive dental health. There are many good dentists in Minnesota, I am certain, but I do not believe that Dr. Meshke could be ranked below any of them. He is truly the best! - Steve W.

Fantastic dental experience! The office staff have always treated me with respect and care. Dr. Swingdorf is the best dentist I've ever seen. Highly recommend! - Ross N.

Really enjoy coming in, the doctors and the entire staff are more engaged and concerned which makes the atmosphere much more friendly and less transactional. The atmosphere was only one facet that made the experience great, I went for a basic appointment but it felt tailored to my needs more so that with other dentists I've gone to. Would definitely recommend to friends and family - Christopher S.

Life changer for me! I had missing teeth and bone loss for years and Dr. Meschke came up with a plan for implants. I can chew with the right side of my mouth again for the first time in over 10 years! Our family of 9 is lucky to have him for a dentist. Professional, Innovative, Caring, & Affordable. Thanks Dr. Meschke!!! - Scott F.

Dr. Swingdorf, I wanted to thank you and Linda and the rest of Chaska Dental's staff for all your courtesy and care to make sure my dental and overall health continue to be excellent. - Camille

Thank you Dr. Swingdorf for your time and attention when I came in for my 6 month check up. I very much appreciate all you do for my and the health of my dental care. I cannot thank you enough!

The receptionists are helpful and courteous, the hygienists are patient, gentle, knowledgeable and very nice. We've been coming here for years and have no intentions on going anywhere else.

One too many kernels of Kettle Korn at the Twins game this past weekend. I called CDC first thing Monday morning and was in the chair for molar restoration within a half hour. Now that's accommodation. Thank you! Go TWINS!

As much as it is contradictory to say; You make dentist visits/work enjoyable! Thanks again and...I always refer my friends your way for a great dentist!

Tom, Thank you so much for your honesty & integrity. I had no idea of your warranty or even that this tooth had been worked on before or when. This will not go unnoticed in the community. I've already told several people of your honesty and quality of work & will continue to do so. - Luke

Dear Tom, Thank you for your care and concern for me - I appreciate your professional pride in your excellent work - even when you make a patient wait. Thank goodness you did have new caps made. I LOVE MY NEW TEETH. Best wishes to you and your family - you are special. XOXO-Susan

The dental care from Dr. Meschke and his staff is the best I've received in my adult years. They are professional, thorough, and make the experience something to look forward to (which is a hard thing to do, given that it's dental work and generally, not an enjoyable experience).

Just a note to say a sincere Thank You for the beautiful work you did on my front tooth, the "prettiest" tooth in my mouth. Yes, Betty, my sister-in-law was informed. I'll show it off Saturday at a wedding shower!
