Dr. Brianna Davydov, DDS, our Board Certified Orthodontist, Yev Davydov DDS and our exceptional team in Midtown, New York, are here to guide you through every step of the Invisalign journey.
Your clear aligner journey starts with an initial consultation at Chroma Dental, where we'll walk you through the following steps:
During the consultation, we'll carefully examine your teeth, discuss your smile goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. We understand that each patient's needs are unique, so we take the time to address any questions or concerns you may have.
Say goodbye to messy dental molds! Instead, we use advanced technology to take a digital scan, images, and X-rays of your teeth. These digital scans help us create a customized treatment plan, and the amazing part is, you get to see a preview of how your teeth will gradually shift into perfect alignment, and a 3D picture of what we’re trying to treat to improve your smile.
Once we finalize your treatment plan, it's time to start wearing your clear aligners. During this phase you can expect:
We'll provide you with a series of custom-made, clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. Every one - two weeks, you'll switch to a new set of aligners to continue the process of tooth alignment We'll make sure the aligners fit perfectly and provide you with detailed instructions on how to wear and care for them.
To achieve the best results, it's essential to wear your clear aligners for 20-22 hours a day. You can remove them for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, ensuring you maintain excellent oral hygiene throughout your treatment. Regularly cleaning your teeth and aligners helps prevent bacteria buildup and ensures the success of your clear aligner journey.
Invisalign and other clear aligner brands use gentle, controlled force to move your teeth gradually, and independently, applying consistent, accurate forces in the prescribed directions to achieve an awesome result. During the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners, you may feel slight discomfort or pressure. This is a positive sign that your teeth are responding to the treatment and moving towards their desired position. Towards the end of each tray-wearing period, the trays become more loose indicating that the movements for that period are nearing an end as the forces stop having a dramatic effect. At this point, you simply swap out to a new set of trays and keep rockin’!
Throughout your clear aligners journey, we'll schedule regular check-ups to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments. Our goal is to ensure that your treatment is on track and that you achieve your dream smile with your clear aligners.
