The Invisalign treatment process at Gentle Dental always stars with
an evaluation of your teeth by our best Invisalign specialists
What is the Treatment Process for Invisalign?
The treatment process for Invisalign is very straightforward and begins with an examination of your teeth here at Gentle Dental. Our Invisalign dentist will thoroughly evaluate your teeth to determine the problems that require correction and to decide if Invisalign is the most effective treatment. One important step is a 3-D scan of your teeth.
Why Do I Need a 3-D Scan for Invisalign?
A 3-D scan of your teeth replaces a conventional tray impression, providing our dentist with clear 3-D images of your teeth. These images are extremely detailed and accurate and are viewable from every angle using Invisalign’s software.
This powerful software uses data harnessed from millions of smiles and creates a ‘road map’ for your treatment plan. Using the information, we can create your unique digital treatment plan, ensuring that exactly the right amount of pressure is applied precisely to reposition teeth. We can fine-tune the repositioning of each tooth, creating a more perfect and potentially healthier smile. The road map ensures that the final treatment outcome will be a smile that looks attractive with teeth that bite together properly and function correctly.
Previewing Your Smile
You can preview these 3-D images created as we design your new smile before you get started on treatment. It is part of the process that most people find very exciting, and which allows you to have your say about your treatment plan. Previewing these images also enables you to evaluate this treatment more easily and to assess if it is a worthwhile investment. You will see clearly how your teeth could look after completing Invisalign. Once you are entirely happy with the predicted results, we will finalize your treatment plan and will order your aligners.
How Are My Aligners Made?
Using the 3-D scan, we create your custom aligners. These are specifically engineered to ensure a great fit and are extremely high quality, so they look and feel better. Every aligner is individually trimmed, so it fits precisely around your gumline.
Getting Started With Your First Sets of Aligners
When you return to our dental office to begin your treatment, we will make sure your aligners fit well and can answer any more questions you might have about your treatment. We will discuss what to expect when you initially begin wearing your aligners and will provide you with several sets to get you started on your path to a straighter smile.
