How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses the latest 3-D computer technology to create a series of customized aligners. Here’s what that process typically looks like:
At your free consultation, you and Dr. Appel will meet to determine what you would like to correct. He will develop your precise treatment plan, then use Invisalign’s advanced computer technology to translate those instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners for you to wear during treatment.
You’ll wear each set of clear Invisalign aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have straightened to the final position as prescribed.
You’ll visit one of Dr. Appel’s Philadelphia offices about once every 6 to 10 weeks to ensure that your teeth are straightening as planned. Away at college? No problem! We can tailor your visits around your trips home or school holidays!
Though exact numbers vary from case to case, total Invisalign treatment time averages 9-15 months, and the average number of aligners is between 18 and 30.
