Treatment with Invisalign

Four Easy Steps to Straighter Teeth with Invisalign

During your initial consultation we will determine if  Invisalign treatment can achieve your smile goals.  Once we agree on an Invisalign treatment, we will begin by taking photos of your mouth and face. We will also use our iTero scanner to take a digital impression of your mouth.

Once we receive your custom made trays you will come back to the practice so we can try the first set in and explain how to wear and care for your trays.  Trays should be worn between 22 and 24 hours per day for quickest results and should be removed for eating.

During your course of treatment you will return to our practice for follow-up visits so that Dr. Ta can monitor your tooth movement and ensure that treatment is progressing appropriately and on schedule.  Follow-up visits are also a time for Dr. Ta to try in and deliver the next set of aligners.  Aligners are typically worn for two weeks, before switching to a new set.  In some cases, they may be worn longer.  Follow-up visits are only a few minutes, and with two convenient locations in Manhattan, scheduling your visits should be easy

Typically follow-up visits are at least once per month, but sometimes more frequently.  During some visits we are able to provide you with more than one set of aligners, so you can continue treatment with less follow-ups.  However,  you should plan on a follow-up visit for each new set of aligners.  Our team will always schedule your follow-up visit before you leave the practice, so we can be sure that your treatment stays on course.

After your treatment is complete, we will provide you with retainers.  Retainers should be worn every night to prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position.  We will provide you with care instructions for your retainers.
