Invisalign aligners can give you the straight smile you’ve always wanted. This exciting system uses a series of clear, hard plastic aligners to gently and gradually shift your teeth into place.

For more information about Invisalign, and whether or not it might be a good choice for you or your child, please speak to your dentist.

How Invisalign Works

Smile Scan

Once your dentist has determined that Invisalign is a good choice for you, they will scan your teeth using Invisalign’s iTero Element scanner. The scanner will then produce a series of extremely accurate images of your teeth, which will then be stitched together to create a 3D model of your teeth.

This model will form the blueprint for your custom Invisalign clear aligners.

Road Map

Once your dentist has the 3D model of your teeth, they will input it into Invisalign’s ClinCheck software. This model is used to create a roadmap, which is used to guide your teeth straightening process.

Once the roadmap is complete, your dentist will show you a preview of what your smile will look like when your teeth are straightened. The software will then create a blueprint for each stage, and create a detailed model of each aligner you will need.

Creating Your Custom Aligners

Once your roadmap is finished, your dentist will send this information to Invisalign, which uses it to create your custom aligners. Each set of aligners is tailored to its user and is crafted with your unique dental needs and mouth in mind.

Wearing Your Aligners

Once you receive your aligners, you will need to wear them for at least 22 hours each day, and you will wear each set of aligners for between 1 and 2 weeks, depending on your dentist’s specific recommendations.

Your dentist will meet with you every 6 to 8 weeks to check your progress, during which you will pick up your next set of aligners.

As you shift from one set of aligners to the next, you may experience a small amount of discomfort as your teeth and mouth adjust. A bit of discomfort is normal, and no cause for concern.

For parental peace of mind, aligners made for teenagers are equipped with blue compliance indicators, which help parents ensure their children are wearing their aligners for enough time each day.

How to Care For Your Invisalign Liners

You will need to remove your aligners any time you eat or drink anything besides water. You should always brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in.

You should give your aligners a thorough rinse with clean water and a gentle brush with your toothbrush before bed each night. Rinsing and brushing your aligners removes any food or other debris that has built up on them over the course of the day, and ensures that your aligners stay fresh and clean.

You should also be using your Invisalign cleaning system regularly to keep them clean and free of bacteria.

Your regular dental routine won’t change much once you start wearing aligners. Simply remove your aligners and then brush and floss your teeth as you usually do. It’s important to remove food or other debris from your teeth before putting your aligners back in.
