Invisalign Treatment Process
From consultation to confident new smile, you’ll know what to expect every step of the way. Get started today by making an appointment with Brit Phillips DDS.
Your first consultation
Choosing Invisalign treatment is an important dental and financial decision. At your initial consultation, Dr. Phillips will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
Your custom treatment plan
Dr. Phillips will use an impression or a digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. Then he will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.
Your Invisalign clear aligners
Your custom-made aligners will be made of Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. You will wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, taking them out to eat and to brush and floss.
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. Dr. Phillips may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule check-ups every six weeks or so. At every stage you’ll be able to see your progress and imagine how far your new smile will take you.
Taking care of your new smile
When your treatment is complete, you may need to wear a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.
