How does Invisalign work?

Once you decide to pursue orthodontic treatment, the first step is having digital X-rays and impressions of your smile taken so that your first set of custom clear aligners can be created. We’ll have you come back in a few weeks to try on your first aligner once they are ready and ensure that it fits properly. Then it’s up to you to wear your aligners as much as possible to keep your treatment plan on track. Aligners are switched out every two weeks, and occasional visits will need to be scheduled so we can assess your smile and provide the next set of aligners.

  • Quick and Effective at Straightening Teeth

Is Invisalign painful?

Clear aligners begin shifting the teeth right away, so it’s perfectly normal to feel a little pain and discomfort, as your teeth are not used to being moved. However, it shouldn’t be anything that over-the-counter pain medication can’t relieve. You can also try eating cold foods like popsicles and applying dental wax to places on the aligner that may be rubbing against your gums. You can also put in new aligners at night so that the initial tooth movements can happen while you are asleep. If the discomfort persists after a week or so, please contact our team.
