The Invisalign treatment process starts with your free initial consultation. If Dr Chong determines you are a suitable candidate for clear aligner treatment, our team will take a 3D scan of your teeth with our Itero Element Scanner in the comforts of our office. Dr Chong will review your scan and plan your tooth movements accordingly. Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you at the Invisalign headquarters based on the 3D scan taken for you.
Dr Chong will deliver the aligners to you within 2-3 weeks of your scan. Depending on your treatment, you could have anywhere between 10-50 aligners. Each aligner is designed to deliver appropriate forces to each tooth as mapped out by Dr Chong.
As you change your aligners every 2-2.5 weeks under the supervision of Dr Chong, your teeth gradually move into position. Since the aligners are engineered to provide specific and precise tooth movements, it is important to wear them at least 20 hours a day.
After completion of your orthodontic treatment, Dr Chong will take another digital scan of your teeth and deliver your retainers. Wearing your retainers for a lifetime is recommended to ensure a beautiful smile for a lifetime!
