If you’re thinking about getting Invisalign® clear aligners instead of metal braces, you should be aware of the general process involved with Invisalign. Here’s a basic outline of the plan:

The first step in getting Invisalign clear aligners is determining whether they’re the right choice for you. When you initially meet with Dr. Joshua Knowles, you’ll decide together what’s best for your teeth. If Invisalign is the right choice, you’ll move to step two.

Using physical molds or a 3D scanner, our orthodontist will create impressions of your mouth and teeth. These impressions will eventually be used to custom make your very own Invisalign aligners. With the impressions completed, the doctor will then begin developing your treatment plan, which should include the path your teeth will need to make and the duration of your treatment.

Every pair of Invisalign clear aligners is made 100% exclusively for the wearer. Your aligners will be removable, so you can take them out when eating food and flossing or brushing your teeth. And because they’re so see-through, friends may not even be able to tell when you’re wearing them!

Your aligners will push your teeth into the desired positions over time. As your teeth move, they’ll come out of alignment with your current aligners, and you’ll need to wear new sets. Frequent checkups with our orthodontist will help you make sure that your teeth are moving correctly.
