How Invisalign® Treatment Works

Invisalign® clear braces use custom-made aligners to straighten your teeth. From your consultation to your final check, the process is simple.

The Treatment Process

  1. Make an Appointment | During your initial visit, we will diagnose you and provide your available options. Once we’ve determined that Invisalign® treatment is right for you, we will create a customized treatment plan.
  2. Customized Treatment Plan | Your treatment plan will consist of x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. These will be used to create digital 3-D images. Your dentist will use these images to create a precise treatment plan that includes the movement of your teeth and approximately how long your treatment will last.
  3. Custom Aligners | Custom aligners will be created based on the customized treatment plan. These aligners are made of a BPA-free material that is both smooth and comfortable.
  4. Wear Your Aligners | The aligners slide on over your teeth and provide a gentle pressure. This pressure, over time, straightens your teeth. Aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours a day to ensure your treatment progress.
  5. invisalign04Replacing the Aligners | About every two weeks you will switch out your aligners. With each new aligner set, your treatment will progress into the next phase.
  6. Attend Appointments | Your dentist will want to see you every four to six weeks to ensure treatment is progressing as planned.
  7. Smile! | When your treatment is complete, you will no longer need to wear your aligners. There’s no messy removal process. Simply take off your aligner, and enjoy your smile!
