Wondering what orthodontic treatment with Invisalign at Toothworks Dental Clinics will be like? Learn all about what to expect by reading through the steps below.Book Smile Assessment
Start With an Initial Appointment
We will begin by examining your smile to determine if Invisalign is right for you. We will take x-rays and digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create a 3D image of your mouth.
Get Your Custom Treatment Plan
Based on your initial appointment, we will map out a treatment plan, including the movements of your teeth, how long you can expect your treatment to take, and the cost of your Invisalign treatment.
Begin Your Treatment
A series of custom aligners will be created for you. You will wear an aligner for 20 to 22 hours each day, removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss. As your treatment progresses, your aligners will gradually begin to shift your teeth into place.
Switch Your Aligners Every Two Weeks
Approximately every 2 weeks, you will switch to the next set of aligners in your series. You will also have brief checkups, every six weeks or so, to review your progress.
Maintain Your Smile
It's an exciting day when you reach the end of treatment! During your final appointment, we will discuss the next steps with you, and prescribe retainers to keep your teeth in their new positions.
