Invisalign may be the ideal way straighten your smile without the need for brackets and wires. Here's more from our Surrey dentist on how the Invisalign treatment process works.
If you don't want the hassle of metal braces, but you want an orthodontic treatment to discreetly straighten your smile, Invisalign may be the ideal solution for you.
1 - Consultation
The journey to a straighter smile with Invisalign begins with a consultation. At your initial Invisalign consultation your dentist will examine your teeth and determine whether Invisalign is right for you.
If you choose to correct your tooth misalignment issues with Invisalign, your dentist will give you a preview of what your smile could look like once your Invisalign treatment is complete.
2 - Receive your personalized treatment plan
In order to create your personalized treatment plan, your dentist will take detailed scans and/or impressions of your teeth. Your plan will map out the steps of your Invisalign treatment for the coming months.
3 - Aligners are custom made for you
Next the scans and/or impressions of your teeth will be sent to Invisalign's manufacturing facility where your aligners will be custom made to specifically to fit your teeth and mouth.
Invisalign aligners are made out of a clear flexible plastic called called SmartTrack® and do not contain any BPA, BPS or gluten.
4 - Treatment begins
Once your aligners are ready, your treatment can get started.
Make an appointment to pickup your aligners, then while you're there, the dentist will check that your aligners fit correctly, show you how to wear them, and review your treatment plan with you.
Also at that appointment, your dentist will give you a clear idea of what you can expect from your Invisalign treatment, and answer any questions you have.
Your dentist will monitor your progress throughout your Invisalign treatment, and make sure that your treatment stays on track.
5 - Live your life without interruptions
Your Invisalign clear aligners are removable, and fit easily into your busy lifestyle with no significant changes to your diet or at-home oral hygiene routine.
6 - Nothing can stop you now!
Invisalign aligners are almost invisible. In fact, Invisalign is so discrete that very few people will even notice that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. So, get out there and enjoy yourself!
