How the Invisalign Process WorksHere’s how Invisalign works: We’ll take digital images of your teeth in order to map out your personalized treatment plan and get your custom-made aligners made. You’ll wear each set of aligners for a couple of weeks and then you’ll move on to the next set. Each aligner is precisely designed to move your teeth into a specific position, getting you closer and closer to your goal. It’s important to wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, so really only taking them out to brush, floss, and eat. This helps ensure that your treatment plan stays on track. Every six weeks or so, we’ll have you come into our office for a quick check-in so that we can make sure everything is looking great and hand off your next few sets of aligners.
