The Invisalign Process at Sterling Heights Dentistry
Interested in unlocking the power of Invisalign? Here’s what you can expect during the Invisalign process with Dr. Hindi:
After a thorough oral exam, Dr. Hindi determines if you’re a good candidate for the Invisalign treatment process. If traditional braces would work better for your particular case, she’ll discuss alternative options.
An oral scanner or digital impressions create detailed 3D maps of your teeth to design your custom-fit aligners. This is more comfortable and efficient than using traditional impression putty.
Invisalign Treatment Plan Preview
Next, you’ll preview your virtual Invisalign treatment with Dr. Hindi. This digital model shows each step of your tooth movements from start to finish. You’ll see your final results in advance, so there are no surprises.
In a few weeks, your first set of aligners will arrive. Each set includes as many as two weeks’ worth of ultra-clear plastic Invisalign trays. Try them on with Dr. Hindi to ensure proper fit before wearing them at home.
Replace each aligner with the next in your treatment sequence every two weeks. Make regular appointments to monitor your progress. Typical treatment lasts nine to 15 months.
Get A Retainer
After your last aligner, you’ll receive a custom retainer. Wear this full-time for the first six months, then nights only to maintain your smile. Schedule regular dental checkups at our Sterling Heights dental office to ensure your teeth don’t shift back.
