YOUR GUIDE TO THE INVISALIGN PROCESS
As one of the most effective teeth-straightening treatments available, Invisalign provides an easy and discreet way to correct oral issues so you can get a smile you love. If you and your Belmont dentist have decided that this is the right option for you, keep reading to find out what you can expect from the procedure:
The Dentist Sets Up a Personalized Treatment Plan
One of the biggest benefits of the Invisalign treatment is the way it caters to every patient’s unique needs. During your consultation, the dentist will take x-rays, pictures, and molds of your teeth and your bite. These images are all put together to create a realistic 3-D picture of the current condition of your mouth, which gives the dentist a clear idea of your treatment needs. Before you even start to wear your first set up aligners, the dentist can use this technology to show you the results you can expect from the procedure.
The Dentist Creates Your First Pair of Aligners
After the treatment plan is in place, the dentist can create the first set of aligners that will start the process of straightening your teeth. Unlike other straightening options, Invisalign aligners are made of comfortable BPA-free plastic. Once you have your aligners, you should wear them as long as possible each day and only remove them to eat and to brush your teeth.
The Dentist Gives You New Aligners Every Few Weeks
Each set of aligners is designed to gradually shift your teeth closer to their desired position. About once every two weeks, you should get a new set of aligners that brings you one step closer to your ideal smile. This also gives you the chance to check in with your dentist so he or she can examine your process and decide if any changes should be made to your treatment plan. At the end of the process, you will have beautiful, straight teeth and a smile that you cannot wait to show off.
