How Does Invisalign Work?
To set you up with your Invisalign treatment, your dentist will take scans of your teeth and put together a plan to gradually straighten them over the course of 18 to 24 months, on average. You will receive a series of aligners and be instructed to wear each one for 1 to 2 weeks depending on your unique needs. You can remove the aligners to eat, drink anything other than water, brush and floss your teeth as well, as for special events as long as you have them in for at least 20 hours each day. Visit our office for periodic appointments so we can check in on your progress -- and once the treatment is complete, we will fit you for a retainer ensure your teeth right where they should be for years to come.
