The Invisalign Treatment Process

Initial Consultation & Exam

Your journey to a new smile begins with a one-on-one consultation. During this initial meeting, you'll share your smile goals with your dentist, who will examine your bite and teeth to see if Invisalign is right for you. It's the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the treatment or explore other options that might suit your needs.

Aligner Fitting & Pick Up

Once you're all set to start, your dentist will take precise scans or impressions of your teeth. This ensures that your aligners fit you perfectly. When your custom aligners are ready, you'll come by our office to pick them up and officially begin your treatment. In some cases, your dentist might place small, discreet attachments on your teeth to help the aligners stay in place effectively.

Check-ins

Your progress will be monitored with regular check-ins, usually every six weeks, to collect your next set of aligners. These visits are essential to make sure everything is on track and your aligners are fitting well. Each appointment is a step closer to your ideal smile!

Invisalign Attachments

Depending on your unique case, our team may add small composite tooth-colored bumps to the surface of your teeth, which allow us to correct more complex misalignments than ever before.

Invisalign + Whitening

Finish off your Invisalign therapy with teeth whitening for a truly dramatic smile transformation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

If your dental issues are mild to moderate, Invisalign might be a great fit for improving your smile. However, if you have more complex orthodontic needs, your dentist might suggest traditional braces as a better option. The best way to find out which treatment will work for you is to schedule a consultation with our team.

Does Invisalign hurt?

While Invisalign is typically less bothersome than metal braces, it's normal to feel some tenderness when you first start wearing your aligners. This mild discomfort is a sign that your teeth are moving into place. If you experience ongoing pain, we suggest taking Tylenol rather than ibuprofen, as ibuprofen's anti-inflammatory properties can affect tooth movement.

How should I wear my aligners?

For the best results, you should wear your Invisalign aligners for about 20 to 22 hours a day. You’ll remove them only for meals, snacks, and your dental hygiene routine. Sticking to this schedule ensures that your treatment stays on track and your teeth move as planned.

How should I care for my aligners?

Keeping your Invisalign aligners clean is straightforward. Simply brush them gently with a soft toothbrush and water to remove any buildup. Always store your aligners in their protective case when you’re eating or brushing to keep them safe from harm and germs.

What should I do if I crack my aligners?

If your aligners break or you lose them, get in touch with us right away. Postponing this can hinder your progress and extend your treatment time. We'll quickly provide a replacement set of aligners so you can continue your path to a straighter smile without delay.

What are Invisalign attachments?

Invisalign attachments, often called buttons, are tiny, tooth-colored dots made from composite resin that are attached to your teeth. These attachments help the aligners click into place more securely. They serve as anchors, maintaining the precision and effectiveness of the adjustments your dentist can make during your Invisalign treatment. Attachments ensure your smile shifts in just the right way.

Can you see Invisalign when you’re wearing them?

Invisalign aligners are crafted from a clear, slim plastic that makes them almost invisible on your teeth. Each set is precisely made to snugly fit your gums and blend in seamlessly. Keep in mind, though, that eating or drinking while wearing your aligners can stain them, which might make them slightly more visible.

How are Invisalign trays made?

Your Invisalign journey starts with detailed scans of your teeth, creating a digital model of your mouth. This model is sent to a specialized lab where your aligners are meticulously designed using advanced CAD (Computer-Aided Design) and CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technologies. This process ensures each aligner is a perfect fit for your dental structure. Once crafted, the aligners are sent back to your dentist for a fitting session, where you’ll be ready to begin treatment.
