The Invisalign Process
In order to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign, our staff will conduct an oral exam with digital imaging here in the office to send to Invisalign. We then develop your treatment plan and order your aligners which arrive in as little as 1-2 weeks. At your delivery appointment, we add on composite attachments that are invisible/ the color of your teeth and insert your first aligner.
Your treatment plan and how much tooth movement you need dictates how many aligners/ time you will need for the whole process. Sets of aligners can range from 5 all the way to 30 and over aligners, with each aligner being changed out every 1-2 weeks. Typically you will be seeing us every 3-6 weeks for us to check on your progress.
After your tooth movement is done, you will need to use clear/ invisible Vivera Retainers in order to hold your tooth position. Typically you will wear the retainers all day for some time and then switch down to nightly wear.
