How does Invisalign work ?

Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you by Align Technology. Align Technology is the world leader in mass custom design and production of clear aligners. In fact more than thousands of customized  clear aligners shipped every day to the dentist.

Treatment Process​

It all started with the dentist office. First, the dentist takes impressions of your teeth and send them to Align Technology to be scanned into 3D models. These 3D images are used to design and customized individual treatment plan to reach straighter teeth. Once confirmed by the dentist, Align Technology will custom make your series of clear aligners and send them back to the dentist. Your dentist will check if these clear aligners fit snugly over your teeth. Minor modification of your teeth such as adding white colour attachments or mild stripping of teeth may be required during the treatment process to reach the goal.  White colour attachments are frequently used to allow these clear aligners to get a better grip and control of the tooth movement. Mild stripping of the enamel are used to relieve crowding and create spaces of the teeth to move.

How often do you need to wear these clear aligners ?

The number of clear aligners needed depends on the complexity of the orthodontic case and the goal of the treatment. You will be required to wear these clear aligners 24 hours a day, except during eating. Because it is almost discreet, most people will not even notice it easily. The other benefit over fixed orthodontic braces is that you can easily removed them to brush your teeth after every meal, unlike fixed orthodontic which need a lot care and attention to brushing and cleaning.
