How does the Invisalign treatment work?
The Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation at the dentist or orthodontist, who can confirm that the treatment is suitable for your needs. If Invisalign is right for you, the doctor will prepare a treatment plan, taking into account your objectives.
Your dental records will be sent to Align Technology and digitized so that the doctor can examine your teeth through a computerized 3D image. This way, you can see a virtual representation of your teeth before, during and after treatment with Invisalign and therefore will know how your smile results at the end of treatment. After deciding the treatment plan with your doctor, we will make the aligners, according to your needs.
Each aligner is slightly different to gradually move your teeth until they are at the desired position. Each aligner must be used for about two weeks before being replaced by another. A full treatment usually takes between 9 and 18 months, depending on your specific case. During this period you should go to the office periodically, until treatment is completed.
