The Invisalign process begins with a consultation with an orthodontist or dentist who is trained in the Invisalign system. During this consultation, the orthodontist will evaluate the patient’s teeth and determine if Invisalign is a good option for their specific case. If Invisalign is determined to be a good fit, the orthodontist will take impressions of the patient’s teeth, which will be used to create custom-made aligners.
Once the aligners are ready, the patient will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before switching to the next set. Over time, the aligners will gradually move the teeth into the desired position. Patients typically visit their dentist every six to eight weeks to ensure that treatment is progressing as planned.
