The Invisalign Process

The Invisalign treatment process is a modern approach to straightening teeth that is customized for each individual patient. Generally speaking, the Invisalign process is shorter and more discreet than traditional methods, but it depends on your unique smile.

If you are ready to find out how Invisalign can help you get the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted, please call 412-487-6910 to schedule your consultation with an experienced Pittsburgh Invisalign dentist at Dentonics.

Your Invisalign Consultation

Your invisalign treatment starts with a comprehensive exam and consultation with our experienced Invisalign dentists at Dentonics. During the consultation, Dr. Frye will determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. If Invisalign is a viable option for you, our dentists will schedule your next appointment to assess your teeth and develop a customized treatment plan.

Your Customized Treatment Plan

At your next appointment when you are ready to begin treatment, we will use digital technology to take impressions and gather 3D images of your teeth to determine the length of treatment that will be needed and the number of aligners. Dr. Frye can then show you a virtual illustration of your treatment plan that displays the movements of your teeth at each stage of treatment. Depending on your unique needs, the length of your treatment plan will vary from a few months to several months and in some cases more than a year. During this appointment, your custom aligners will be ordered.

Once your custom aligners arrive, you can begin treatment by wearing them at least 23 hours each day. You will begin wearing the next set of aligners in the sequence about every two weeks. As you advance through your treatment, you will have occasional checkups with the Dentonics staff to make sure you are progressing as planned. These appointments will be scheduled every six weeks or so and are a great way to see how you are progressing toward your beautifully straight smile.

Your Final Smile

Once your treatment is complete, it’s time to celebrate! To keep your smile looking great, Dr. Frye may recommend Vivera retainers made by Invisalign. These custom retainers are made much like the aligners used during treatment to lock in your straightened smile.
