Invisalign process

What is the process to get Invisalign?

1.Talk to Dr. Kanaan

Your treatment begins after you select Dr. Kanaan as an experienced Invisalign Provider. 
During the consultation, you and Dr. Kanaan will discuss your case in detail to determine how Invisalign will make your teeth straight. Invisalign now addresses many cases, from simple to more complex. This will also be your opportunity to ask any questions about Invisalign, costs, dental/orthodontic insurance, or any other concerns.

2. A Customized Treatment Plan is created for you


Dr. Kanaan will take x-rays, pictures and a 3D Scan of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image of them. From these images Dr. Kanaan will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth, and tell you the approximate length of treatment. Using the same technology, Dr. Kanaan will be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment.

3.Receive Your Custom Aligners Based On Your Personalized Treatment Plan


Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners is then created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won't irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do. Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or to brush and floss your teeth. You need to wear them at least 22 hours each day. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. And because they're virtually invisible, most people won't even notice you're wearing them

4. Wear a New Aligner Every 1-2 Weeks


Approximately every 1-2 weeks, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. To monitor your progress, you will also have occasional checkups with your doctor, usually only every six weeks or so. For best results and a timely outcome, you should wear your aligners for 22 hours per day, throughout your entire treatment. At every stage, you will be able to see how much closer you are to having the smile that reflects the real you

5. Reveal Your New Smile & Keep It Looking Great


Congratulations! This is the time when you celebrate. You have reached the end of treatment and you will be smiling more than ever.
Once your treatment is complete, protect the beautiful new smile you have invested in. Ask your doctor if you will need retainers to keep your teeth in their new position.
