Details Regarding the Process of Invisalign®

Invisalign® is a successful orthodontic treatment that gently moves your teeth into their ideal positions, giving you the smile of your dreams. This treatment is a little different than the treatment involved with braces. It has its own way of helping you achieve the appearance you’ve always wanted. It involves the following steps:

Step 1: First, your orthodontist will begin treatment by taking a series of X-rays of your entire oral cavity. These X-rays will help Dr. Amandeep S Gill create an individualized treatment plan just for you. If you would like, the technology used to examine your smile can also show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will shift throughout time.

Step 2: Next, your orthodontist will create a series of aligners that will begin to move your teeth. It’s recommended to wear the aligner for 20 to 22 hours a day, but take it out when you eat food or brush and floss your teeth. The aligner will be made of smooth, comfortable plastic that will keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.

Step 3: You will come back to Gill Family Dentistry every two weeks to receive a new set of aligners. The new set will bring you one step closer to your perfect smile.
