How It Works
If you are unsure of how Invisalign works, you are not alone. There are many people who do not know what it is, but once you do, you will want everything to do with it. Invisalign is a treatment program that straightens your teeth using a set of clear aligners. Each of these aligners is custom made to fit into your mouth and will hug your teeth closely and snugly to gently push them together and straight. The aligners are designed to be comfortable and they are smooth, so you never have to worry about food getting stuck in them or attaching to them. The aligner will not cause you to feel uncomfortable and you do not have to worry about it being bulky in your mouth to where you gag all of the time.
Many patients like the idea of Invisalign because they are able to remove the aligner when they want to eat or when they are ready to sleep or perform daily activities.
Each aligner works gently and will push your teeth together in a soft manner, so you do not even feel it. You never have to worry about metal brackets in your mouth and you can take your aligner out when it comes time to eat or drink, which makes them extremely convenient.
You will receive new aligners every two weeks until your teeth are in the position you want them in and you are happy with your smile. Once treatment has been completed, you will not have to worry about the treatment any further because the results are permanent.
Treatment Process for Invisalign
Now that you have a basic idea of how Invisalign works, now it is time to go over the actual treatment process. For example, you may be wondering how many times you need to come into our Fremont office or how many aligners you actually need for your mouth? It is important for you to talk to Dr. Bien about the treatment process for specific questions related to your mouth and smile.
Below, we will provide you with a general breakdown of what to expect and how the treatment will go when you come into our Fremont office.
Talk to Dr. Bien
The first step to Invisalign is to have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Bien. This is the initial consultation and it is very important. Your Fremont dentist will explain the treatment process to you at this time and also go over the benefits and timeline for results. You will also have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Bien about any questions or concerns that you may have and she can help you determine if this is the right treatment option for you.
Dr. Bien has many years of experience in Invisalign and is ready to help you get the straight smile you desire. It is important that you work with an experienced Fremont dentist, as you want to make sure you do achieve results and have the proper aligners.
While you are in our Fremont office, we will let you know if you are a good candidate for the procedure. If you are, you will be able to discuss pricing and more.
Customized Plan is Created
Once you have been determined to be a good candidate for the procedure, you will have a complete exam, x-rays, and impressions. Once this is done, a 3-D image will be created for you to take a look at. This image will give you an idea of what your teeth will look like after your rounds of treatment.
At this time, you will learn more about how long it will take for you to achieve the results you want and you will be told how many aligners you need to progress through. Typically, treatment takes anywhere from six months to a year.
Receive Your Invisalign
Now it is time for you to receive your aligners and make sure they fit properly. Dr. Bien will examine your mouth with the aligners in, so that she can verify they fit properly. You will need to try to wear the aligners as much as possible to ensure that your teeth will straighten the way you want them to.
If you find that your aligners are uncomfortable or they bother you, let Dr. Bien know immediately, as they may need to be adjusted.
Get New Aligners in Two Weeks
Every two weeks you will need to receive new aligners to progress in the treatment phase. You will come into our Fremont office and have the aligners checked in your mouth. You will receive your new set of aligners every two weeks or so depending on your individual progress.
Complete Your Treatment
Once you have reached your desired results, treatment is completed and you can enjoy your new, beautiful smile.
