How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign in Foothill Ranch, CA, works through a series of clear aligners. You wear aligners over your teeth, changing to new ones every few weeks throughout treatment. Across these weeks, you’ll notice your teeth lining up slowly.

If you’re considering Invisalign near Lake Forest, we schedule an appointment for you with the dentist. This first visit is a consultation that determines whether the orthodontic system will meet your needs. Then, if it is suitable, we cover the treatment timeline—somewhere between several months to two years, depending on the complexity of your alignment issues. We also talk about the cost of Invisalign in Foothill Ranch.

If you proceed with treatment, we take impressions of your teeth, forward our findings to the Invisalign lab, and wait for your aligners to arrive in our dental office. When you pick them up, we’ll show you how to clean and change them every few weeks. After that, you’ll visit Healthy Living Dentistry only periodically so our Foothill Ranch dentist can check your progress.

At the end of treatment, we fit you with a retainer. This is also worn over the teeth but only at night. It prevents orthodontic relapse, protecting your new smile alignment.
