How does invisalign work?
More than 6 million people have have utilized Invisalign to move their teeth into a better position. The clear aligners are custom-made for you, they are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and rotating them when needed. They are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
What is the process?
Invisalign consultations are always no charge at Bococa. You will be able to discuss your needs and goals and see if you are a candidate for treatment.
Digital Impressions and Photos
The iTero® digital scanning system will be used to create a fast, precise 3D digital image of your teeth (no traditional impressions needed) and photographs will be taken. Your images are immediately uploaded to Invisalign and a treatment plan is created. Dr. Gangi’s expertise enables him to carefully evaluate the proposal and enhance it in order to meet your goals in the most efficient and predictable manner possible.
You return to receive your aligners and begin treatment. As you wear each set, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. Each patient varies in duration of treatment, how often the aligners need to be changed and how often they need to be seen. On average, we see most patients every six weeks.
When treatment is complete, clear retainers are made in order to maintain the new position of your teeth and smile.
