Straight Teeth in 5 Easy Steps
The Invisalign process is thorough and patient-focused. While the process involves a few essential visits for retainer adjustments, each step is carefully planned for optimal results. Here are the steps you can expect with your Invisalign treatment:
- Step 1: Taking Records, Scans, and Pictures
- Step 2: Designing Your Treatment Plan
- Step 3: Receiving Your Custom Aligners and Getting Started
- Step 4: Changing Your Aligners as Needed
- Step 5: Sharing Your Stunning New Smile!
Our first step allows for you to see before and afters, as well as for us to track how your teeth are moving. We will use the scans we take to design your treatment plan, carefully creating each and every aligner custom to your smile.
Most often, you will get your custom aligners by picking them up at the dentist, or we may be able to mail them to you after your visits. Each treatment plan will vary, but generally you will change your aligners every two weeks. You will not need to go to the dentist for every new aligner, making this process easier for you.
Once you have your Invisalign aligners, what’s next? Invisalign aligners should be worn all day, and while you sleep. You will take them out to brush your teeth and eat. Keeping them in for most of the day will help your teeth shift consistently and quickly, leading to a better result overall. If you do not wear them as often as you should, your results may be delayed! Be sure to follow all instructions from our doctors on how to wear your Invisalign.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
While individual experiences vary, Invisalign treatment time can range from 12 to 18 months, depending on the complexity of your dental needs. If you are fixing how teeth line up on top and bottom, such as for an overbite or underbite, the treatment is often a bit longer.
Will Invisalign Clear Braces Work For You?
Invisalign can be a helpful orthodontic treatment for so many smiles! Our clear braces can fix a plethora of orthodontic concerns, such as:
- Gaps in your smile
- Crooked teeth
- Misaligned bites
- Off-center teeth
- Minor overbites or underbites
These concerns can affect not only how your smile looks, but also how your smile feels! Orthodontic concerns, such as gaps and misaligned bites, can wear on your teeth or be uncomfortable for your mouth. Invisalign works to fix those issues simultaneously.
Invisalign will work great for you if you are looking for an orthodontic fix that is simultaneously aesthetic and helpful to your oral health. Contact us today to learn what Invisalign can do for you!
Commit to Your New Smile!
Invisalign’s effectiveness is contingent on a consistent commitment to wearing your aligners. You need to wear your retainers for 22–23 hours a day to effectively achieve the best results.
If you struggle to maintain habits or find regular dental retainers uncomfortable, this treatment may not be the solution to your concerns. If you have serious orthodontic concerns, such as a protruding overbite or underbite, need your teeth pulled forward, or are missing a tooth, Invisalign cannot help with these issues.
If you need orthodontic treatment for crooked teeth, you can come in for a free consultation to see if Invisalign will help your concerns.
