  • Open bites 
  • Crossbites 
  • Underbites
  • Overbites
  • Crooked teeth 
  • Overlaps or overcrowded teeth 
  • Gaps and uneven spacing 
  • Twisted teeth

Invisalign Treatment and What to Expect

If you’re considering Invisalign at Norfolk County Dental Care, here’s what you can expect.  

Have an Invisalign consultation with your dentist.

To determine if Invisalign is right for you, we must discuss your health history, oral health status, smile goals, and budget. We also want to ensure patients are willing or able to follow their treatment plan and wear their aligners for at least 20-22 hours each day.

Your dentist creates a customized treatment plan.

If your dentist concludes you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, we create a customized treatment plan to meet your unique needs. We must perform a thorough examination, complete with x-rays and impressions of your smile. 

Wait for your Invisalign clear aligners.

We send your impressions to an Invisalign lab, where a specialist fabricates your aligner trays. Invisalign works in sequential order, so each new tray is tighter than the previous, gradually shifting the teeth into the proper alignment. 

Wear your Invisalign clear aligners.

We recommend wearing Invisalign aligners 20-22 hours each day for your ideal outcome. Following your dentist’s guidelines is the best way to ensure your treatment provides excellent results. 

Your Invisalign dentist refines your smile.

Throughout your Invisalign treatment, your dentist will make necessary adjustments to make sure you stay on track. However, Invisalign doesn’t often require as many adjustment appointments as traditional braces. 

Maintain your smile.

Once you complete your treatment, it’s essential you continue wearing a retainer to maintain the position of your teeth. Otherwise, your teeth can shift into their original position, undoing all of your progress with Invisalign.
