Invisalign: What To Expect
The Invisalign process begins with a consultation and evaluation of your smile to be sure that this treatment option is the best solution for your needs and aesthetic goals. Once the choice has been made to move forward, we will take digital scans of your mouth chairside using a handheld scanner. This easy, convenient process will provide the digital imagery necessary for creating custom aligners to reposition your teeth.
It takes about 2-3 weeks for the aligners to be prepared and sent to us by the Invisalign lab. When they are ready, you will come to the office for the placement of the initial set of aligners. During this visit we will discuss the timing of aligner changes and how to care for them during your treatment. Typically, patients change aligners every two weeks. Invisalign is a convenient orthodontic treatment option and the aligners can be removed as needed, making it easy to enjoy your favorite foods and to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Other than removal for oral hygiene and eating, the aligners are kept in place around 22 hours per day.
Am I a candidate for Invisalign? Our dental care team will evaluate your teeth and bite before recommending Invisalign. While most patients are candidates for Invisalign, we wnt to be sure that treatment will be successful for you. How long is Invisalign treatment? Invisalign is typically completed in 12-15 months, with some patients needing more time for complex tooth movement. We will give you an estimated treatment time during your consultation.
