How Do I Get Started?

Getting started with treatment couldn't be easier. In fact, you can be on your way to straighter teeth and a beautiful smile within weeks of visiting your dentist.

Step 1: Visit Your Dentist

Step One

During this first step you will need to make an appointment with an Invisalign ® Certified Dentist.

During the initial visit, your dentist will help you decide on your course of treatment. He will take bite impressions of your teeth and send them, along with a set of precise instructions, to Invisalign ®.

Step 2: Invisalign ® Makes Your Aligners

Step Two

Invisalign ® uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to transform your bite impressions into a custom-made series of clear and removable aligners. There may be as many as 48 in the series or as few as 12, depending on your individual treatment plan.

Step 3: You Receive Your Aligners in a Few Weeks

Step Three

During your next visit to your dentist, you will receive your first set aligners. Your dentist or dentist will most likely give you a few additional sets for you to wear before you return for your next visit.

Step 4: You Wear Your Aligners

Step Four

You'll wear each set of aligners day and night for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months, but will vary from case to case. You'll visit your dentist only about every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Step 5: You've Finished The Treatment

Step Five

Congratulations! When you're finished wearing each aligner in the series, your treatment will be complete and you will have the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
