How Invisalign® Works

If you need orthodontic treatment but are hesitant about wearing metal brackets and wires, you may choose Invisalign®. As you are just beginning your Invisalign journey, or simply considering taking that first step, Dr. Randy Wright and our team are happy to walk you through the Invisalign process.

You will first come into our office for a consultation. Our orthodontist will perform an evaluation to determine whether Invisalign is the best choice for you. Then a scanner will be used to create 3D images of your teeth. These images will be used to map out your individualized treatment plan. This will include the exact movement of your teeth and your projected treatment time.

Your virtually invisible Invisalign aligners will be made and your first set will be issued to you. Wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, or as our orthodontist recommends. Your Invisalign aligners can be taken out when you eat and when you brush and floss.

Each set of Invisalign aligners will gradually and gently guide your teeth to their correct positions. You will receive your next set of aligners about every week and checkups at Wright Orthodontics will be set up about every six weeks.

Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, we may suggest that you wear a retainer to hold the positions of your newly straightened teeth until they stabilize.

We invite you to contact our office at 630-208-1200 today for more information about Invisalign in Batavia, Illinois, and to schedule a visit.
