How Invisalign Works

Our office will give you an initial examination to determine if Invisalign ® treatment is right for you. If it appears that Invisalign ® is an option, we will take photographs, x-rays, and an impression of your teeth.shapeimage_7

We will then complete further diagnostic analysis to verify that Invisalign ® will work for you and create a treatment plan that will determine exactly how the teeth are straightened. At that time, we will be able to let you know if you qualify for orthodontic insurance benefits and the estimated cost and length of treatment.

When the treatment plan is complete, your records will be sent to Invisalign ® along with the dentist’s instructions. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign ® will translate the our instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners.

You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. Each set of aligners will gradually move your teeth closer and closer to the desired result. You will need to wear these aligners all the time except when you are eating, drinking, or cleaning your teeth.
