The Invisalign Process

With their convenient, customized, and practically invisible aligners, Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. Learn About what to expect during your Invisalign treatment at Langley Orthodontics.

Step 1: Talk to Dr. Kanani, Your Invisalign Provider

Dr. Kanani is an experienced Invisalign provider. He will evaluate your needs and determine whether Invisalign is right for you. During your first consultation, we will discuss your case in detail to determine if you're a good candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic cases, from simple to more complex. This first consultation will be your opportunity to ask any questions about Invisalign, costs, dental/orthodontic insurance, or any other concerns.

Step 2: A Customized Treatment Plan is Created for You

The Langley Orthodontics team will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth. These will be used to create a digital 3-D image of your mouth, based on which Dr. Kanani will map out your precise treatment plan, the exact movements of your teeth, and the approximate length of treatment. Using the same technology, we will create a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment. Although every case an patient is unique, treatment is normally about a year in duration for adults. For teens, the length of treatments is comparable to that of braces.

Step 3: Receive Your Custom Aligners Based On Your Personalized Treatment Plan

A series of custom-made, clear aligners will be created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won't irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces can. You'll wear them throughout the day, and remove them to eat, and to brush and floss your teeth. As you progress to each new set of aligners, your teeth will slowly begin to shift into place. And because they're virtually invisible, you'll find a lot of people won't even notice you're wearing them.

Step 4: Wear a New Aligner Every Two Weeks

Every two weeks or so, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners and advance to your next stage of your treatment. You will also attend occasional checkups with your orthodontist to monitor your progress, about every six weeks or so. To achieve the best results and most timely outcome, you should wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day, throughout your entire treatment. At every stage, you will see how much closer you are to your straight new smile.

Step 5: Reveal Your New Smile & Keep It Looking Great

It's an exciting day when you reach the end of treatment! The Langley Orthodontics team invite you the final appointment in this treatment process, during which they will determine if you will need to wear a retainer for a period of time to keep your teeth in their new position.

Congratulations on your beautiful new smile!
