Getting a perfect smile is as simple as three steps at Cooney and Tyner Orthodontics. Here is the treatment plan you need to know for your upcoming Invisalign treatment:
Step 1: 3D digital imaging of the teeth.
Step 2: Placement of the tooth colored bumps (attachments) on the teeth and delivery of upper and lower Invisalign aligners. Begin rotating aligners to facilitate movements for the duration of treatment. You will have updated scans and multiple batches of aligners throughout treatment to progress movement as needed. Most patients will need an Interproximal Reduction (space stealing) procedure completed where we reshape the teeth to help with crowding issues. This is generally done a few months into treatment.
Step 3: Removal of all attachments and placement of upper and lower clear plastic retainers. Retainers will be worn full time for a few weeks, then 12 hrs a day for a year, then night time for a life time to stabilize and maintain your hard work.
