Getting Invisalign® clear aligners is a process we can walk you through in our office. Here are the general steps you’d take to get Invisalign:
Before anything else, you and our orthodontist will decide whether Invisalign is the best choice for your needs. If you decide together that Invisalign is right for you, you’ll move on to the next step, developing your treatment plan.
With either a 3D scanner or a physical mold, Dr. Nehi Ogbevoen will take pictures or impressions of your teeth for custom creation of your Invisalign aligners. Once the mold or pictures have been made, our orthodontist can work on developing your custom treatment plan, which will include the duration of your treatment and the path your teeth will take.
Invisalign clear aligners are built with each individual wearer in mind, so they will be custom-made just for you. You’ll be able to remove them to eat, brush, and floss, and because they’re practically invisible, people may not even be able to notice when you’re wearing them!
As you wear your aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into their proper positions. With the teeth in new spots, you’ll need to wear aligners that match the positions of your teeth. Meeting with your doctor to review your progress will help you both evaluate whether things are proceeding properly.
