How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign Preferred Provider

Invisalign works in a similar manner as braces by slowly shifting your teeth into their desired position by using a series of custom-made clear alignment retainers.

Starting off, we use 3D imaging technology and X-rays to determine the entire treatment plan which showcases the current position of your teeth and the progression or movement of your teeth into their desired destination.

Once we have determined how the teeth need to be aligned, we create a series of custom-made aligners or invisible retainers for your mouth. Each aligner makes slight adjustments to the position of your teeth, gradually shifting your teeth into the desired position. After about two weeks of wearing an aligner, you will change over to the next step of aligners, which continually aligns your teeth until you obtain the smile that you always wanted.
