How Does Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign process begins when you schedule a consultation. During this initial appointment, our team will examine your mouth and take X-rays to see what orthodontic issues you face. Once we let you know that you’ll be a good candidate for the treatment and you decide to move forward with the process, our team will develop an individualized treatment plan for you so you know what to expect along the way. We’ll also take impressions of your teeth to send off to our Invisalign laboratory so they can craft your aligners.
As soon as your trays arrive at our office, we’ll call you in to give them to you and show you how to clean and put them in your mouth. Every six to eight weeks, you’ll come back for a quick progress check and so we can give you the next series of trays in your treatment. Towards the end of the process, we’ll also discuss retainer options with you so your teeth don’t gradually shift back into their original positions and undo all of the hard work you’ve accomplished throughout your treatment.
