How Invisalign Works

In Invisalign, Blog by Dr. Lattinelli

Invisalign is a terrific procedure for straightening teeth that results in terrific smiles. Many people have heard about this dental technique but may not be familiar with exactly what it involves. Dr. Lattinelli explains how Invisalign clear teeth aligners work by utilizing the three simple steps below.

The first step is to schedule a consultation with an Invisalign professional. The iTero Element® scanner will allow your Invisalign dentist to take a quick and accurate 3D digital scan of your teeth and design an individualized treatment plan specifically for you. During this initial appointment the process will be thoroughly explained and you should feel comfortable asking questions or address any concerns that you may have.

Next, the dentist will see to it that the aligners are ideally positioned during your fitting. You will be informed regarding all aspects of your aligners including what to expect in terms of results. The length of time that the Invisalign procedure takes varies from person to person. Some clients are finished within a period of six months. No matter the projected time span you will need to wear the aligners, progress can be seen within the first few weeks.

Once your teeth are transformed beautifully and you can’t stop flashing your gorgeous new smile, the last step is to prevent your teeth from shifting. Retainers are extremely effective in keeping teeth in place since they hinder repositioning. Invisalign is proud to utilize Vivera brand retainers. These high-quality retainers are 30% stronger than their competitors and are customized for each client.
