After deciding that you want to get Invisalign® you will talk to your Delta dentist who will create a customized treatment plan for you based on x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth that will be taken at the dentist’s office. Invisalign® will use these resources to create a digital 3-D image of your teeth that your dentist will use to map out your personal treatment plan.
You will receive a series of custom-made, clear aligners based on your individual plan. They are made of BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your mouth. You will wear them throughout the day and night, removing them only to eat and brush/floss your teeth.
Every two weeks you will move on to a new set of aligners to advance to the next stage of your treatment. The aligners should be worn 20-22 hours a day, and you should have occasional checkups with your dentist to monitor your progress.
After you’ve finished your time with the final set of aligners your smile is ready! You’ll want to discuss with your dentist to determine if you need a retainer to keep your teeth in their new position.
