How Does The Invisalign System Work?
What’s fascinating about Invisalign is it combines the 100-year-old science of orthodontics with modern, 3-D computer technology. Invisalign’s purpose is to incrementally move your teeth into their desired position by using as series of custom fit, clear aligners that are worn like mouth guards. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. The treatment plan can be explained in the following four steps:
- Step 1: Visit our office in Monroe, WA for a consultation appointment to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
- Step 2: If you qualify for Invisalign treatment, you will have a follow-up appointment where we take 3-D, computer generated impressions of your teeth. Then, we send in your precise treatment instructions and 3-D impressions to the Invisalign lab, which uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners.
- Step 3: Wear each aligner for about two weeks, only taking them out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week.
- Step 4: The final desired alignment is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!
