Ready to finally achieve the straight smile you’ve been dreaming of? The first step towards straighter teeth begins with scheduling a complimentary consultation with our office. Our team will provide you with more information and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Then, digital scans of your teeth will be taken, and the process of designing and creating your custom aligners will begin.
Pick Up Aligners
Once your aligners arrive, we will have you come in and place your attachments. Attachments are small, clear dots placed on certain teeth to aid in precise tooth movement. Attachments are also used if rubber bands are needed to move the teeth. While it’s normal for aligners to feel a little tight at first, they’re the magic that makes Invisalign work, and we will want to make sure that your custom trays fit properly and will do exactly what they’re designed to do.
Once you take your aligners home, it’s imperative you wear them full-time unless you are eating, brushing, or flossing your teeth. Invisalign aligners need to be removed any time you are eating or drinking something besides water, and they should be cleaned at least once per day to keep them in great condition. We recommend storing aligners in their case whenever they are not being worn to avoid losing or damaging them.
Attend Occasional Appointments
In addition to wearing your aligners regularly, scheduling and attending a handful of short orthodontic visits with our team is another important part of the Invisalign process. Our Invisalign technicians will examine your teeth, address any questions or concerns you may have, and provide you with your next set of clear aligners.
Show Off Your New Smile (& Wear Your Retainers!)
Your last orthodontic visit is important for evaluating and making plans for finishing your treatment, and it will also involve taking digital scans of your newly straightened smile to have your custom retainer created. We know you will be looking forward to your very last orthodontic appointment—that’s when you get to take your aligners out for the final time! Once you have your retainer, you will want to wear it at night while you sleep to ensure that your new smile stays perfectly in place.
