For many of our patients, Invisalign® clear aligners can be the ideal way to straighten teeth, and correct bite issues, without metal wires and brackets. Today, our Fort St. John dentists explain how the Invisalign treatment process works, in 5 easy steps.
Do you want a straighter smile, without metal braces?
If you are looking for an orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth or correct a bite issue, but don't want the look of traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be the ideal orthodontic treatment for you!
Here's How You Can Achieve a Straighter Smile with Invisalign:
1 - Book a Consultation
The first step on your journey to straighter teeth is to visit for a consultation.
When you visit us for your consultation, your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and bite to determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
If Invisalign clear aligners are right for you, your dentist will do a series of detailed scans to help in treatment planning and the creation of your aligners.
2 - Your Personalized Treatment Plan
Our dentists know that every smile is unique. Based on your specific smile goals, and the results of your scans, your dentist will create a personalized treatment plan specially for you! Your personalized treatment plan will map out the steps of your Invisalign treatment, and provide you with insights regarding timelines and what you can expect from your Invisalign treatment.
3 - Invisalign Aligners Are Customized To Transform Your Smile
Every one of the clear aligner in your treatment series will be created specifically to fit your teeth precisely. During your treatment the custom made aligners will gently shift your teeth into their corrected positions. Invisalign aligners are made out of a thin, clear flexible plastic that is gluten free and does not contain any BPA, or BPS.
4 - Your Straighter Smile Starts Here
Once your first series of aligners arrive at your dentist's office you will be contacted to come pick them up, and your treatment can begin.
While you're picking up your aligners, your dentist will check to ensure that your aligners fit correctly, show you how to wear them properly, review your treatment plan with you, and answer any questions you may have about your treatment. After that, you will only need to visit your dentist every 6-8 weeks so that they can monitor your progress and make adjustments to your treatment as required.
5 - Nothing Can Stop You Now
Your clear aligners will be almost invisible while you're wearing them. That means hardly anyone will notice that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment. Not only that, your Invisalign aligners are removable so there's no need to make any changes to your diet. With the low-profile design of Invisalign aligners you will feel confident smiling even while you are straightening your teeth.
