The Three Steps of the Invisalign® Process

November 4, 2016

Invisalign® is a new-and-improved orthodontic treatment that can help you achieve your dream smile. It’s a great option for adults and teens who have minor misalignment issues, especially because the appliance that is used is hardly visible to the casual observer!

The Invisalign treatment in Victoria, TX, involves the following three steps:

Step 1: First, our dentist will begin treatment by taking a series of X-rays of your entire oral cavity. These X-rays will help Dr. Manshadi, Dr. Roden-Johnson, and Dr. Afridi create an individualized treatment plan just for you. If you would like, the technology used to examine your smile can also show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will shift throughout time.

Step 2: Next, your dentist will create a series of aligners that will begin to move your teeth. It’s recommended to wear the aligner for 20 to 22 hours a day, but take it out when you eat food or brush and floss your teeth. The aligner will be made of smooth, comfortable plastic that will keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.

Step 3: You will come back to Victoria Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics every two weeks to receive a new set of aligners.  The new set will bring you one step closer to your perfect smile.

As you can see, Invisalign can move your teeth in a simple and comfortable way. If you’re interested in correcting your smile’s misalignment issues with this treatment, our Victoria Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics team encourages you to call our office now at (361) 433-4704 and schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. Manshadi, Dr. Roden-Johnson, and Dr. Afridi.
