At your consultation appointment for clear braces you will learn everything you need to know about Invisalign and also get the chance to ask any questions you may have.
Once Dr Rosenstone has confirmed your eligibility for treatment, he will take photos, X-rays and dental impressions, of your teeth. These records will be used to create a ClinCheck® 3D treatment plan, just for you.
After being custom-made and shipped to the practice, you will receive a series of clear aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.
How does Invisalign® work?
Invisalign aligners move teeth through a series of carefully controlled movements. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign not only controls the amount of movement that each aligner delivers, but also the timing of the movement. So, at each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, following the Invisalign treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system
You’ll visit the practice around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.
Wearing a retainer after any orthodontic treatment is an important step, because it keeps teeth stable in their new positions. If you want your teeth to remain in their ideal position, it’s best to wear a retainer as directed by Dr Rosenstone.
In many cases your last aligner will be your temporary retainer, until your retention option is determined. Dr Rosenstone can advise you on longer term retention options.
How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The time taken depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces. During your consultation, Dr Rosenstone will give you more detailed information.
Is the Invisalign treatment painful?
Some people may experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days when they insert a new aligner at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It’s a sign that the aligners are working and it usually goes away in a couple of days.
