If you’d like to get Invisalign® clear aligners instead of traditional metal braces, here are the steps you’ll follow:

The first thing our orthodontist will do is set up a consultation with you to decide whether Invisalign clear aligners are your best choice. If you both come to the conclusion that Invisalign is right, then you’ll move to the next step.

With a 3D scanner, Dr. Jerrold Hennes will take digital pictures of your mouth and teeth; alternatively, our orthodontist may create a mold of your mouth from physical impressions. With the images or mold created, your doctor will move on to developing your treatment plan, including how long you’ll need to wear the aligners and how your teeth will need to move.

Your Invisalign aligners will be made for you from the ground up. Because they’re see-through, people may not be able to tell when you’re wearing them! They’re also removable, which means that you can enjoy eating without getting food stuck in them. For the best results, wear them for 22 hours per day.

The Invisalign clear aligners will move your teeth into their proper spots gradually. As your teeth reposition themselves, you’ll need to wear new sets of aligners. Because of this, you’ll need to meet with your doctor on a regular basis to review whether your treatment plan is proceeding appropriately.
