1. Mapping the tailor-made treatment plan
Our Invisalign specialist scans your teeth using x-ray images and creates a 3D model to work with. Than he maps out specific treatment plan that includes timing and position of your teeth at any given moment of treatment process. Treatment with Invisalign takes virtually the same amount of time as it would take with the braces and depends on how your teeth are shaped. Mainly it takes about a year for an adult. Feel free to ask your orthodontist exactly how long the treatment will take place.
2. Creating your personal Invisalign aligners
Using 3D model and treatment plan we create a necessary number of aligners for you to wear throughout the treatment process.
