What to Expect During Invisalign® Treatment

Posted .

Do you have crooked or crowded teeth? Are you hesitant to straighten your teeth with braces because of the metal brackets and wires? Ask Drs. Jergensen and Waddoups about Invisalign® in Temecula, California. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gently straighten your smile over time.

When you come in for your consultation, our orthodontists will speak with you about your orthodontic needs and goals. In addition, they will evaluate your smile to determine whether Invisalign is right for you.

Treatment Plan
Our orthodontists will take 3D images of your teeth. Using these images, your treatment plan will be mapped out. Your treatment plan will include things like the projected treatment time and the exact movement of your teeth.

Invisalign Aligners
Your aligners will be custom made to meet your specific needs. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so you can smile with confidence during treatment! We recommend that you wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. Take out your aligners when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth.

Straightening Progress
Each set of aligners will gently and slowly move your teeth towards their ideal positions. Our orthodontists may recommend that you advance to the next set of aligners about weekly. Your checkup appointments should be scheduled about every six weeks.

After Treatment
After your Invisalign treatment, we may recommend that you wear a retainer to stabilize the new positions of your teeth.
