What To Know Before Starting Invisalign®
If you are interested in straightening your teeth and would like to try Invisalign® we want to share some important information to know before starting treatment. When you visit our office and decide to use Invisalign® as a treatment method, it is important to note that treatment does not start immediately. We first take an impression of your teeth that is used to create a series of clear aligners that you will change every one to two weeks. We will review your treatment plan and discuss how many aligners you will use and the expected length of your treatment. On average, Invisalign® treatment can last for 12-18 months. We also review the guidelines for wearing the aligners to get the most out of your treatment.
