Our Certified Invisalign Process
We offer a free consulation with Dr. Neely to make sure you are a candidate for Invisalign. Lisa (the office manager) will go over finances with you to help make it affordable for you. This is our Invisalign process:
- First Appointment: Dental Records
We take photos and digitally scan your teeth with the Itero (instead of traditional impressions). This information will be used to create a 3D rendering of the plan of tooth movements from start to end of treatment. This is called a Clincheck. Dr. Neely will work on your Clincheck to design the best plan for you.
- Second Appointment: Review Clincheck
Once Dr. Neely is happy with the plan, we will have you come in for a quick appointment to view the Clincheck. We want to make sure you are happy with the end result prior to starting. When you approve the Clincheck, the aligners will be fabricated.
- Third Appointment: Get the aligners
We will teach you how to put them in and take them out. In addition, we will go over all of the "dos and don'ts".
- Consecutive Appointments: Checking on your progress
You will come in to see Dr. Neely about once every 4 to 6 weeks to make sure your treatment is progressing as needed.
You will wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you switch to the next set of aligners, your teeth with move little by little.
Treatment time averages 9-15 months, depending on severity of crowding and spacing in your mouth.
