During your Invisalign treatment, we will schedule regular appointments with you to monitor the progress of your treatment and ensure your teeth are moving as planned. Generally, you will visit our office once every six weeks.
After each visit, we provide you with the next series of aligners. Invisalign is quite different from other orthodontic treatments because you are given a great deal of control. For your treatment to be successful, you must wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. As such, Invisalign is somewhat risky to the extent that you can adversely affect the treatment course by failing to wear your aligner often enough.
You are also responsible for caring for your aligners. The aligners should be cleaned regularly, and you should try to avoid misplacing and breaking your aligners.
Invisalign requires your compliance. Traditionally, our patients do not find compliance difficult because they are committed to achieving a beautiful, functional smile.
