Typical Invisalign treatment journey
Variable ~ 6 appointments
Dr Rick and the TT Team will discuss your smile goals while educating and informing you of the necessary preparations and requirements that different treatments carry.
2. Induction & Clean
The team will take a full set of diagnostic records so you and Dr Rick can get a clear picture of your unique oral environment. By the end of this appointment, Dr Rick will be able to assess your suitability for invisalign and tailor your treatment plan to achieve your smile goals. You will receive a professional clean to start your dental journey with a hygienic and healthy environment. At the end of this appointment your photos and 3D scan will be sent to our Invisalign team to provide a digital simulation (Clincheck) of your predicted treatment length and results.
3. Clincheck review (2 weeks later)
Dr Rick will have prepared a 3D simulation video of your Invisalign journey. This digital simulation is prepared beforehand so you can see through a video animation how long it will take to move your teeth from their current position to straight alignment.once treatment is approved, the aligners will be shipper from Invisalign’s manufacturing facility.
4. Preparation appointment: (2 weeks later)
The teeth are prepared with interproximal reduction and/or tooth coloured ‘buttons’ attached to specific teeth that require complex forces to move them into the correct position; this is a 60 minute visit.
5. Monitoring appointments
The aligners are changed on a weekly basis and you will return every 2 – 4 weeks to pick up your next set of aligners and for Dr. Rick to review your progress, complete any additional procedures as necessary, and to provide specific advice and support throughout your journey until treatment is complete.
6. Retention appointment
Once the aligner treatment is finished the buttons are removed and you will be fitted with retainers to maintain the outcome of your treatment.
