This video shows the technique used for dental alignment with Invisalign technology.
STEP BY STEP PROTOCOL
Your first visit will consist of reviewing your oral health history and your medical questionnaire. Your dentist will give you all the information you need about the Invisalign treatment. You will undergo a complete oral clinical exam using digital imaging. Different photos will be taken from different angles.
Your second visit will consist of the Clincheck, which is the presentation of your treatment plan. Your dentist will tell you the approximate time needed to reach your goals and the number of aligners needed to achieve these goals.
During the third visit, your dentist will install small bonded composites on certain teeth in order to guide the safe movement of the teeth. He will determine the interval of visits for the rest of your treatment, depending on the complexity of your case. He will give you all the material you need to continue your treatment at home for the following weeks.
Your follow-up visits will always include an oral clinical evaluation, and if necessary, the change of the composites bonded to the teeth. Your dentist will give you new aligners to continue your treatment. He will explain the post-treatment instructions and give you a written copy to take home.
