When you choose Invisalign® aligners, you're choosing a personalized treatment option for straightening your smile. First, your dentist will scan your teeth with the state-of-the-art iTero® scanner, which provides a 3D image of your teeth. This allows your doctor to pinpoint any issues you may have, such as an overbite, underbite, crooked teeth, etc. Your doctor will then go over the results of your iTero® scan and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Next, your doctor will create a customized treatment plan based on your specific needs. Your iTero® images will be used to create custom Invisalign® aligners, which your doctor will trim to specifically fit your gum line until you get the perfect fit and feel. Invisalign® aligners are made out of SmartTrack® material, which is engineered to ensure both a great fit and comfort.
During treatment, you'll wear your aligners daily (except for when you're eating or drinking!) until you get the results you want (typically in about three to six months, but this varies from patient to patient). Periodically, you'll meet with your doctor to make sure that you are on track to reach your smile goal. During your appointment, your doctor will provide you with new aligners, check them for fit, and answer any questions you may have!
