To begin, you will have a consultation with one of our experienced dentists to determine what your teeth straightening goals are and to establish whether you are a candidate for this method. As part of the process to determine if you are a candidate, our staff will take x-rays and pictures, as well as make impressions of your teeth for models. If you are established as a candidate for Invisalign®, these x-rays, pictures and impressions will be utilized to create your exact treatment course which will show exact teeth movements throughout the process.
Clear, custom-made aligners will then be personally created to follow your treatment plan. You will be required to wear the aligners throughout the day, only removing them to eat, brush or floss. While the actual time frame may vary slightly, you will change your aligner trays to a new tray every two weeks. At Sunshine Dental Group, we will check your progress every 6 weeks or thereabouts. The length of the treatment time will vary by individual but our dentist will give you an estimated date of completion according to your progress and results.
