Your Invisalign treatment plan is as unique as your smile. Dr. Gallien has been working with Invisalign aligners since 2005. He will take digital 3D impressions of your teeth and use them to design a custom treatment plan. The information is sent to an Invisalign lab where your aligners are manufactured. When your aligners arrive, he’ll check the fit of the first set and review your plan with you, answering any questions you might have.
You’ll wear each Invisalign aligner about two weeks before switching to the next one in your plan. Over time the aligners gently move your teeth into the desired positions. They move them vertically and horizontally and even rotate them if necessary. You’ll check in with us every four to six weeks so we can ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Unlike braces, you won’t need uncomfortable adjustments.
