What is Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners consist of a series of clear plastic, removable appliances that move your teeth in small increments. Invisalign’s product combines your doctor’s diagnosis and prescription with sophisticated computer graphics technology to develop a treatment plan which specifies the desired movements of your teeth during the course of your treatment, upon approval of a treatment plan developed by your doctor, a series of customised invisalign aligners is produced specifically for your treatment.
You may undergo a routine orthodontic pre – treatment examination including radiographs (x-rays) and photographs. Your doctor will take impressions or intra oral scans of your teeth and send them along with prescription to the Align laboratory. Align technicians will follow your doctor’s prescription to create a Clin-Check software model of your prescribed treatment, upon approval of the Clin-Check treatment plan by your doctor. Align will produce and ship a series of customised aligners to your doctor. The total number of the aligners will vary depending on the complexity of your malocclusion and the doctor’s treatment plan. The aligners will be individually numbered and will be dispensed to you by your doctor with specific instructions for use. Unless otherwise instructed by your doctor, you should wear your aligners for approximately 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, brush and floss. As directed by your doctor, you will switch to the next aligner in the series every 1-2 weeks’ time or as directed by your doctor. Treatment duration caries depending on the complexity of your doctor’s prescription. Unless instructed otherwise, you should have a follow up with your doctor at least at a minimum of every 6 to 8 weeks.
Some patients may require bonded aesthetics attachments and / or use of elastics during treatment to facilitate specific orthodontic movements. Patients may require additional impressions or intraoral scans and / or refinement aligners after the initial series of aligners.
