Invisalign© uses custom-made removable series of aligners to straighten your teeth. The aligners are removable, virtually invisible, and smooth (without brackets and wires).
The journey starts with taking X-rays, photographs, and iTero scan or impressions during the initial consultation. The consultation includes evaluation and determining whether which treatment option – Invisalign or traditional braces – will benefit you.
Once you have decided the Invisalign treatment, your dentist will generate treatment plan. The treatment plan will be communicated with the Invisalign, and your custom aligners will be manufactured once the dentist has okayed the plan.
Aligners will be delivered to you through our dentists.
When wearing the aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into place based on the movements planned. The total duration of the treatment depends on your case. Generally, you will move on to the next tray set approximately every two weeks, until the treatment is complete.
When the treatment has come to near completion, you will be asked about *retainers.
*Retainers: Retainers are appliance needed after completing an orthodontic treatment. Typically, it is not included in the Invisalign program or Braces program, and is a separate cost. Retainers are necessary to wear after any kind of teeth straightening. They keep your teeth in their new position. Read more about retainers.
