How Is Invisalign Treatment Planned?

What will it take to fully address the alignment problems that currently affect your smile? For many people concerned about gaps or overlaps between teeth, Invisalign can serve as an effective treatment option. Of course, different patients can have different issues with misalignment, which means one person’s aligners may do little to benefit another. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we use an iTero digital scanner to measure and evaluate your smile. This allows us to record precise information used to craft custom aligners for you. This can produce appliances that are effective at taking care of your individual issues with poorly spaced teeth, and it can be more comfortable than a planning process that requires you to create a manual mold of your bite.

We Use Modern Imaging Technology When Planning Your Treatment

Instead of taking impressions with plaster material, we are able to analyze and measure your teeth with our iTero digital scanner. This process can be more comfortable for you, as you will not have to sink your teeth into an off-putting plaster substance. It can also ensure that the information we gather is detailed enough to produce custom aligners that are suited to your correction needs.

The Importance Of Custom Aligners

You will receive a sequence of clear plastic aligners when you undergo treatment with Invisalign. These appliances have to be carefully designed in order to fit properly, and to make sure your teeth are undergoing the proper movements to improve your appearance. To make sure you stay on track, keep your appliances on as often as possible. While you can take them out to clean your teeth or eat, you should keep them in at other periods of your day. Fortunately, their discreet appearance can ensure they do little to impact the way you look, making it easy to keep them in place during important social and professional activities.

What To Expect Once You Start Treatment

Once you begin treatment with Invisalign, you will wear your first aligner for the designated period of time before making the move to your second, then third, and so on until you have completed your adjustment. Invisalign appliances are designed to be a patient-friendly alternative to metal braces that are permanently placed and require manual adjustments, so they can feel unobtrusive to your daily life. With that said, you can be understandably concerned about finishing an adjustment in the shortest period possible. With Propel Orthodontic technology, we are able to shorten your treatment time so that you can start to flash a straightened smile sooner!
