A General Timeline For Invisalign®

A General Timeline For Invisalign® Every smile is different. Every smile requires different needs. For a child or adult with mild to moderate orthodontic needs, Invisalign® treatment may be able to provide for those needs.  Invisalign® treatment involves the use of acrylic, clear mouth trays to gently readjust the smile into a proper alignment. While the timeline for Invisalign® treatment will be different for everybody, the benefits are usually the same. Not only are the trays nearly invisible to the eye, but they are also removable for eating, drinking, etc. This means that they are less likely to “cramp your style” in your appearance and your daily life than traditional metal wire-and-bracket braces. If you are considering Invisalign® treatment, schedule a complimentary consultation in Fort Worth, TX with Dr. Cabal. 

Consultation and Planning

Before starting your Invisalign® treatment, you and your orthodontist will decide if Invisalign® treatment is right for you. Not every smile qualifies for the treatment. If your smile requires more traditional forms of adjustment, but you still want discreet options, tooth-colored brackets may provide a good solution for you. If Invisalign® is right for you, you will enter the planning stage. Using digital scanning technology like iTero, your orthodontist will make detailed images of your smile. These images will be used to create a comprehensive treatment plan.

Wearing Your Trays

The images of your mouth and smile will be used to make your custom aligners. You will wear a different set for about two weeks before moving onto the next set of aligners. Each set of aligners is part of an incremental succession to nudge your smile into the proper position. The length of time that you will wear the aligners will depend on your specific needs.

Retention Stage

Once you have finished your treatment, you will have a brand new straight smile. To maintain it, you may need to wear retainers at certain times. Your orthodontist can best discuss with you what your post-Invisalign® life will look like.
