Step 1

Schedule Your First

To start, we will check your smile to find out whether Invisalign is right for you. Next, a digital scanner will be used to produce a 3D image of your smile and what it may look like with Invisalign treatment. 

Step 2

Create a Custom
Treatment Plan

We will map out a precise plan, with timelines, for your Invisalign treatment based on the choices made in your first appointment. Your plan will specify the exact movement of your teeth to occur with each set of aligners. 

Step 3

Begin Your Custom
Treatment Plan

A series of custom Invisalign clear aligners will be made just for you. You will wear them every day, removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss. As your treatment continues, your aligners will gradually start to shift your teeth. 

Step 4

Change Your Aligners
Every Two Weeks

About every 2 weeks, you will switch to the next set of clear aligners. You will also need to check in briefly with your dental team — every 6 weeks or so — to review your progress and address any questions you may have. 

Step 5

Maintain Your
Straighter Smile

You've reached the end of your treatment — what an exciting milestone! At your final appointment, we will discuss next steps and prescribe retainers  to keep your teeth in their new positions.
