From the first consultation to taking care of your new smile, the Invisalign process is made easy and affordable when you choose a provider like Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park. Here is what you can expect during the Invisalign treatment process:
Your treatment process will begin with a proper consultation with a dental specialist. Your doctor will discuss your needs and give an honest evaluation as to whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
Custom Treatment Plan
Your dentist will choose to begin your custom treatment plan by either taking a precise 3D digital image of your teeth or the dentist will ask to take a physical impression of your teeth. After your doctor analyses the image or impression, he/she will then map out a customized treatment plan to map out the exact movements of your teeth and estimate the length of your treatment plan. You will likely even be able to see how your teeth will move and exactly what your new smile will look like.
Your Custom Aligners
Your Invisalign clear aligners will be made of SmartTrack® material. This is the virtually invisible material that will allow your aligners to remain practically hidden while they are straightening your teeth. You will be instructed to wear your Invisalign aligners for about 20-22 hours a day for optimal results.
The custom aligners work quickly yet gently to move your teeth into alignment. Your doctor may recommend you start wearing a new set of aligners every week.
