The Invisalign Process
1. Your Consultation
Your Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Gabriel, who will examine your teeth and jawline to determine if you’re a candidate for these convenient aligners. He’ll also take scans of your smile here at our Wexford, PA office and send them out to a lab that’ll create your Invisalign aligners. The manufacturing process can take a few weeks.
2. Your First Pair of Aligners
We’ll let you know when your first set of aligners is ready so you know when to return to our Wexford, PA office. Dr. Gabriel will make sure that the Invisalign trays fit your teeth and carefully go over the treatment instructions. Once Dr. Gabriel makes sure that there aren’t any problems with your aligners, you’re ready to begin the process of straightening your smile.
3. Everyday Wear & Replacement
Invisalign will gradually straighten your teeth through a series of custom aligner trays that’ll be swapped out once every two weeks. Each set is custom-designed to influence certain sets of teeth to shift them into their proper position. To achieve your dream smile, wear your aligners for most of the day and only remove them to eat or drink and clean your teeth.
