Invisalign ® Process
During your initial consultation you’ll discuss the issues you have with your teeth and what kind of results you would like to see. Dr. Nooshi Akavan will determine if your situation is suitable for Invisalign treatment, a treatment plan will be mapped out with your goals in mind. Then all digital images will be taken with the iTero Imaging Scanner.
The iTero handheld wand will be used to take a digital, 3D image of your prepared teeth. Then, Dr. Akavan will plan your tooth movements throughout your entire treatment time line. You’ll be able to see a virtual representation of your teeth before, during, and after completion of the Invisalign process so you can see what your smile should look like when you’re done with treatment.
Customized aligners are created with advanced technology for you to wear at each stage of your treatment. While the number of aligners varies for each individual situation, a full set of treatment typically includes 20-30 aligners per arch.
You should wear your aligners at all times, with the exception of eating and drinking, in order to complete your treatment in the time line we’ve determined. You’ll come in for occasional checkups, to monitor your progress and to receive your next set of aligners. During the entire treatment process, you’ll be able to watch your teeth gradually moving into place. Your smile will, little by little, move into something you’d like to show off. The people around you will be sure to notice your new-found confidence.
