What are the next steps if I was to go ahead?
Invisalign will create a 3-D digital computer simulation based on the photos and x-rays and allow us to create your customized treatment plan. Our Invisalign dentist will use the same 3-D technology to show you a virtual representation of your treatment plan and how your teeth will move during each stage. Treatment times vary, but generally treatment takes approximately one to two years for adult patients and about 14-30 months for teens.
You Receive Your Custom Aligners
Based on the information collected during step two, your aligners are custom-made specifically for you. They are comprised of a BPA-free plastic that is smooth and won’t irritate your gums and cheeks. Wear them throughout the day, only removing them when you eat or brush and floss your teeth. Your teeth will gradually begin to move as you change out your aligners every two weeks.
Change Your Aligner Every Two Weeks
You will be supplied with a series of Invisalign aligners that will carry you throughout the duration of your treatment. You will change your set of aligners every two weeks to advance you to the next stage of treatment. We will see you in our office approximately every six weeks to monitor your progress. We recommend you wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day for the best results.
