The first step is to come see us for an initial evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. We’ll discuss the treatment option in depth, costs, insurance and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Customized treatment plan.
We’ll take digital X-Rays of your teeth to create a digital 3D image of your bite. From thes e images we’ll be able to map out a precise treatment plan to achieve our goals. While every case is different, the treatment time for most adults is about a year. For teens, the length of treatment is similar to braces.

Your customized aligners.
Based on the customized treatment plan Dr. Nejat creates for you, a series of custom-made clear aligners will be fabricated. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that are comfortable to wear and removable so you can eat and drink what you like. As you progress to each new set of aligners, you’ll gently and gradually be shifting your teeth into place.

Wear a new set of aligners every two weeks.
Approximately every two weeks, you’ll begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of treatment. You’ll have occasional check-ups with Dr. Nejat – typically every 6 weeks or so – to make sure your treatment is progressing as it should. For maximum results, you should wear your aligners at least 20-22 hours per day. You’ll be amazed at the progress you see after each new set of aligners!
