The Invisalign® Treatment Process

Invisalign treatment is gaining a lot of traction in Austin, Texas as a desirable solution for orthodontic problems. Unlike braces, that require brackets to be placed on the teeth and the connection of wires, Invisalign is almost invisible (as its name suggests).   Mostly for those who don’t want to draw attention to their orthodontic work, Invisalign is a great alternative to braces.

Consultation with an Austin Invisalign Treatment Provider

Dr. RJ has completed many cases and acquired specialized training to offer Invisalign. During your initial consultation exam, he will assess your smile and will recommend the best option for treating your case. As an elite provider of Invisalign in Austin, TX, Dr. RJ is able to treat all cases with Invisalign. With Dr. RJ’s expertise, you are guaranteed a “braces result” with Invisalign.

Your Custom Treatment Plan

The way Invisalign works is through a series of customized, form fitting clear aligners that fit perfectly over your teeth. To create your custom aligners, Dr. RJ will take x-rays and an iTero intraoral scan of your teeth which will be sent to the Invisalign laboratory. At this time, Dr. RJ will be able to tell you approximately how long your orthodontic treatment may take.

Arrival of Custom Aligners

Treatment begins once your customized aligners have arrived. Dr. RJ will show you how to place them on your teeth and how often you will need to change to the next set, generally every two weeks.  For Invisalign to work correctly, you must wear them for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, drink, and brush your teeth.  The aligners do their work by gently moving your teeth into proper alignment, correcting your smile as you go about your daily routine.

Welcome to Your New Smile!

After you complete your final set of Invisalign aligners, you can witness the smile you’ve always dreamed of.  Dr. RJ may also recommend you to wear a retainer to help keep your teeth stay in their new position.  So if you’re interested in learning how RJ Orthodontics in Austin can help give you the smile you’ve always wanted with Invisalign, give us a call (512) 363-5792 and schedule your free initial consultation.
