Since the invention of Invisalign trays about two decades ago, treatment of dental malocclusion has become more discreet and sufferable for people who care about their smile. You can now correct slight imperfections without having to put up with the annoying conspicuousness of traditional metal braces.

Brace for the following if you’re contemplating getting Invisalign aligners:

You will be tested for eligibility

Not everyone is eligible for the Invisalign treatment. You will be examined and a decision will be reached on whether you can go ahead with the procedure. If you are not eligible, your dentist will suggest an alternative treatment for you.

Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth

This is a very important stage of the Invisalign procedure as it dictates the effectiveness of the trays you receive at the end of the day. Impressions will be taken and developed into 3-D images that will be sent to the Invisalign experts at Costa Rica for fabrication of your aligners. A special computer application is used in creating these 3-D images.

You will receive your aligners

Your aligners may take up to two weeks before they are sent back to your orthodontist or dentist. They will be handed to you upon arrival.

You will be required to wear each set of trays 22 hours a day for two weeks before you can move to the next set. More appointments will be planned to allow for assessment of your progress.
