How Invisalign Straightens Smiles
Who knew orthodontic treatment could be this easy…
Like this amazing product, the Invisalign treatment process has been designed with your comfort, confidence and lifestyle in mind.
During your first consultation our dental team will evaluate your smile using digital X-rays, to discover if Invisalign is the best treatment option for you. If you and your smile are compatible with the system, we will then use advanced computer imaging technology to scan and design your perfect smile. At this stage we will also design a custom treatment plan to fit you and your lifestyle.
According to your treatment plan, you’ll then visit us every few weeks to receive your new set of aligners. These are pre-programmed to enforce a small amount of pressure on your teeth to encourage the alignment process. During these visits we will also check your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment program.
Your aligners are not only aesthetically pleasing, they are also strong and durable. These can be removed for eating and maintaining proper oral hygiene. As the weeks pass you will notice your smile transform before your eyes!
Treatment times vary on a case by case basis, and are generally less than that of traditional orthodontics (12 months to a few years). Treatment times are greatly influenced by your diligence in terms of wearing your aligners, and neglecting to wear them on a regular basis can result in increased treatment time, cost and poor results.
During your Invisalign journey, you may also wish to perform at home whitening treatment. This would simply involve purchasing a whitening gel and applying it to the inside of your aligners to straighten and whiten your teeth simultaneously.
