The Invisalign Process: Step by Step
Here at the typical steps to prepare for Invisalign:
An appointment with your dentist is imperative to first decide if Invisalign is right for you. They will cover cost, standard procedure, and any other detail relevant to your decision.
To create your custom trays, molds are needed from impressions of your teeth. Once the mold is created, it is sent to an Invisalign laboratory where a tray will be fabricated.
Arrival and Instructions
After your trays have been created and are received (usually about a week or two) you will need to go in for a detailed instruction visit with your dental facility. The dentist will explain the correct ways to use, remove, and maintain your aligners.
Maintaining a proper treatment plan is the most important step of the process. Your tray should be worn for at least 22 hours a day, and the closer you follow your instructions, the more effective your treatment will be. You run the risk of slower progression or adverse results by accidentally or purposefully neglecting proper use.
