This first step is a quick and easy way to gauge whether or not Invisalign treatment will fit your needs.
It’s free and can be completed in just a few minutes.
For the best treatment results, choosing an experienced doctor can make all the difference. Each doctor may vary when it comes to pricing, patient interaction and treatment recommendations. We suggest doing a little research and possibly meeting with more than one doctor to find the one who best fits your needs. Many doctors offer free consultations.*
Make sure all your questions are answered. Bring a printout of our Frequently Asked Questions and Questions for Your Doctor sections to help provide topics for discussion.
Your doctor will start by mapping out a detailed treatment plan with your goals in mind. An exciting part of the Invisalign technology is that your doctor will be able to show you a digital 3D representation of how your teeth will move during treatment.
Your first consultation
At your initial consultation, your doctor will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
Your custom treatment plan
Your doctor will use a scanner such as the iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth.
Then your doctor 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 our proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
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. Your doctor 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, ask your doctor about a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.
