Starting Invisalign? Here's How it Works

Starting Invisalign? Here’s How it Works
Posted on 01/01/2021
Are you beginning Invisalign treatment in 2021?

Did you choose Invisalign because of its less invasive, more appealing approach to making your smile more beautiful?

Many people choose Invisalign for themselves and their teens because of its invisible equipment, removable aligners that make it easier to floss and brush, and the benefit of no food restrictions that typically come with traditional braces.

Invisalign is the go-to choice for many orthodontic patients, but you still might be wondering… how does Invisalign work compared to traditional braces?

•    Consultation: Chose an experienced provider who is suited to determine if Invisalign is right for you and to develop your treatment plan.

•    3-D Scan: after deciding on Invisalign, you’ll get a detailed 3-D digital scan of your teeth. The scan is pivotal for the highest degree of treatment and care. 

•    Custom-Made Aligners: your 3-D scan allows Invisalign and your orthodontist to design your first set of custom-made aligners to begin shaping your straighter smile. The BPA-free, non-irritating plastic trays help you avoid some of the discomfort that can be associated with braces.

•    All Day and Night: you’ll wear your aligners all day and night to make the process as efficient as possible.

•    Eating and Cleaning: only remove the aligners when you eat and to brush your teeth. When you brush, make sure you clean you Invisalign aligners, too!

•    Upgrades: every few weeks, you get a new set of aligners which targets a set group of teeth according to the treatment plan devised by your orthodontist. Each set moves your teeth about ¼ mm.

•    Wait 12 Months: typically, after just 12 months your treatment will be complete and you’ll have nothing to do but enjoy your brand-new smile! Though a year may seem like a long time, remember that it’s much faster than the average time someone wears braces. And since Invisalign is invisible, it won’t disrupt anything in your daily life.
