1 – Schedule a Free Consultation with TNT Orthodontics
We will sit down together, and discuss your situation in detail and determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic cases, and we can help you to find out if it would be a good solution for you. You can also ask any questions you may have about the treatment, related costs, or any other concerns.
2 – Get Your Customized Treatment Plan
We will take x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth in order to create a digital 3-D image. From these images, TNT Orthodontics will be able to map out a precise treatment plan that includes the exact movements of your teeth. From this plan, we will know approximately how long your treatment is likely to take. While every case is unique, treatment typically takes a year for adults, and for teens, the length of treatment is comparable to that of standard braces.
3 – Receive your Custom Aligners
Based on your treatment plan, a series of custom clear aligners will be created specifically for you. They are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums the way that traditional metal braces can. You will simply wear your aligner throughout the day, removing it to eat or brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each aligner, your teeth will gently and gradually begin to shift into place.
4 – Wear a New Aligner Every Two Weeks
Every two weeks or so you will switch to the next aligner in your series, according to your treatment plan. To monitor your progress, you will also have occasional checkups with TNT Orthodontics (usually every six weeks or so). For best results, be sure you are wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours each day throughout your treatment.
5 – Enjoy Your Beautiful Smile
Congratulations! Once you have completed your Invisalign treatment, it’s time to celebrate. You’ll be smiling more than ever!
