How Does Invisalign work?
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. If we determine that Invisalign is right for you, Dr. Himelhoch will start by creating a custom treatment plan just for you. The Invisalign aligners move your teeth in small steps until the desired position is reached. Each aligner is created to fit your mouth at each stage of your treatment plan. Here's a rundown of what you need to know about Invisalign:
- Clear, removable virtually invisible aligners
- Aligners are replaced roughly every two weeks
- Typically patients use 12 - 48 aligners during treatment
- Aligners can be removed to eat, brush and floss
- Teeth move gradually week-by-week
