How does Invisalign Treatment Work?
Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by Dr Kumra.
Invisalign Treatment Process
From your initial consultation with Kumra Orthodontics to a confident new smile, you will know what to expect every step of the way with Invisalign.
Choosing Invisalign treatment is an important dental and financial decision, so it’s essential that you find the right doctor for you.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Kumra will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
Your custom Invisalign treatment plan
Dr. Kumra will use a scanner such as the iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth.
Then Dr. Kumra will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Your custom-made aligners will be made by Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you are wearing them.
Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, taking them out to eat and to brush and floss.
Your progress with Invisalign Clear Aligners
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. Dr. Kumra may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule check-ups every six weeks or so.
At every stage you’ll be able to see your progress and imagine how far your new smile will take you.
