What Is the Invisalign Treatment Process?
To ensure that you are eligible for Invisalign, the orthodontist will assess your teeth and the health of your mouth. If you are a potential candidate, here’s what you ought to expect during the treatment process:
Wearing Your Aligners
The orthodontist will first make a traditional mold or scan a 3D image of your teeth, which will be used to customise your aligners depending on your desires and expectations.
Once ready, the specialist will give you sets of customised aligners that you’ll wear for 20 to 22 hours per day for the best outcome. Your orthodontist will advise you on when to replace the aligners.
Remember, you may need to remove the aligners when eating, brushing, or flossing.
Monitor Your Progress
After six weeks, you ought to visit the orthodontist for a check-up to evaluate if the treatment is going as expected, and make any adjustments when necessary.
Duration of the Treatment
The treatment duration will depend on your wishes and the anticipated teeth movement. However, it usually takes nine to twelve months.
Caring For Your Smile Post Invisalign
Besides the Invisalign, the orthodontist may recommend retainers, which are typically worn at night in order to maintain your progress.
