The Invisalign® Process

Our Calgary, AB area patients know that Invisalign can leave them with a beautiful, straightened smile.

For the longest time, traditional braces have been the go to method of straightening crooked teeth and correcting bite issues. However, the invention of Invisalign® is quickly beginning to change this. This is primarily because the Invisalign process leaves patients with a beautiful, straightened smile without requiring that the patient bleed for it. With such a great advancement to the teeth straightening field, many of our current and prospective patients have expressed the idea that the Invisalign process must be very complicated. We at Northpointe Family Dentistry are happy to say that this isn’t so and, today, Drs. Edward and Georgie Rosenbaum are blogging from Calgary, AB to give an overview of the process and what you can expect from each step.

A Straightforward Solution to Crooked Teeth

The process of straightening crooked teeth and correcting bite issues with Invisalign is actually very easy and straightforward. In fact, the process can be broken down into five easy steps. These steps include:

  1. Consultation: Every journey to a new, straightened smile begins with a consultation at our Calgary, AB office. During your consultation, Drs. Edward and Georgie Rosenbaum will perform a thorough examination to see if Invisalign is a good treatment option for your needs. They will also take the time to answer any additional questions you might have.
  2. Treatment Plan: If Invisalign ends up being a good solution for you, the doctors will create a personalized plan for your treatment. This plan will not only reveal how long you can expect your treatment to last, but it will also detail the exact movements your teeth will make with each aligner you use.
  3. Receiving the Aligners: With your treatment plan written, you will begin to receive your custom made aligners. Each aligner is made from a soft, clear plastic that fits comfortably and invisibly against your teeth and gums.
  4. Switching Old Aligners for New: About every two weeks, you will need to replace your current aligners for the next ones in the series detailed in your treatment plan. With each new aligner you use, you will be able to see the progress your teeth have made.
  5. Revealing Your Results: Once you’ve finished with your final set of aligners, all that will be left is to take them off and show off your beautiful new smile! At this point, the doctors may also recommend using a retainer, as your teeth are still capable of moving back into their old positions.
