Invisalign Treatment Process

At BIDH dental hospital, the invisalign treatment process starts with a consutlation between you and your orthodontist. Digital panoramic and celpholmetric x-ray images are taken and a study model made for treatment diagnoses.

Step 1 : Digital Imaging and iTero Scanning

Upon you’re decision to start invisalign, your dentist creats a 3D digitalized image of your teeth using the iTero scanner. Using the scanner enables a better aligner fit than physical impressions.

The scan is sent off by ClinCheck software to invialign that provides an post reatment simulation. You can thus see your new smile before you start to determine if the treatment plan and invisalign is right for you.

After scanning of your teeth, it scan is submit to ClinCheck at invisalign. ClinCheck is a software that gives a 3D visual map on how each aligner trays shifts teeth into position. ClinCheck uses algorithm to calculate the amount of force for each tooth movement.

Your can see the mapped out path from the first to final aligner. The final post treatment results can be seen without guesswork or waiting.

Step 3 : Fabrication of clear aligners

Upon confirming your ClinCheck treatment plan. Your invisalign clear aligners are fabricated overseas. Invisalign are made of patented SmartTrack material with more than 8 years of research and development and over a decade of expertise in biomechanics and material science.

SmartTrack is specially engineered for invisalign that enables:

  • application of gentle and constant forces
  • control of tooth movements and improved predictability
  • more comfortable and easy to slip on and off

These tiny and barely noticeable placed over teeth surfaces. The attachments acts as handles to enable give your aligner to apply the correct forces in the right direction.

Step 5 : Wear Trays with Monthly Checks

Wear your clear aligners trays according to number. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks. When you start wearing each new set of aligners, it is normal to feel a little extra pressure or discomfort for the first few days.

Your invisalign orthodontist at BIDH orthodontic center arranges visits ranging between 6 to 8 weeks to check your progress, pick up the next batch of aligners and perform possible stripping as teeth shift into positions.

Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for best results. When eating and drinking, remove your aligners. Rinse your aligners every night and brush them gently with your toothbrush to keep the trays clean.

Vivera retainers by invisalign are clear and virtually invisible and made with the same cutting edge technology as invisalign trays. For Vivera retainers, a new scan is made of your teeth that is fabricated overseas and picked up.
