how does invisalign work?
When you want to get started with Invisalign, you simply have to come in and see us here on site at bluedot dental. We need to take a look at the current state of your mouth, and figure out if you would benefit the way you want from Invisalign. Then, if your mouth is a good candidate, we will set up your first set of trays, which are quite similar to where your teeth are currently located.
Dr. Jeziorski will create a digital scan of your teeth that the lab uses to virtually move and place your teeth into the proper alignment. From there, Invisalign prints a series of 3D trays (aligners) that will systematically move your teeth as you progress to each set in the series. From there, additional trays are created by comparing where you are now to where you want your smile to be. Then, a set of trays that will be changed out about every two weeks are formulated, putting slightly different pressures on your teeth to get them toward their final destination. You wear the trays for around two weeks, unless Dr. Jeziorski tells you otherwise, then switch up to the next set of trays. This experience continues until patients have achieved the look they want.
You’ll wear your Invisalign trays for two weeks at a time, only removing them during meals or when it’s time to brush and floss. Change them out as prescribed, and you’ll see the results in the convenience of your own home!
Stop by our Gilbert Invisalign office about every other month to pick up your next several sets of trays. Dr. Jeziorski will check your bite to make sure that everything is progressing as it ought to.
