The Clear Aligner Process
At your first orthodontic visit, your doctor will take digital impressions of your smile. Digital impressions are both quick and precise, and will allow your orthodontist to plan out your treatment time and show you the expected end results. From these digital impressions, sets of custom clear aligners will be made. Clear aligners are to be worn a minimum of 22 hours per day, but can be removed for brushing, flossing and eating. This allows you to enjoy the foods that you love throughout treatment! As you switch to each set of new aligners, you will see improvement in your smile. Periodic visits will be scheduled to ensure that your smile stays on the right track. Your treatment will end once every set of aligners has been used. Once treatment is over, your smile will be aligned and a custom retainer will be made to help your teeth maintain their new position.
