Invisalign is an excellent treatment option for individuals with crooked or gapped teeth who want to avoid getting braces. After an initial consultation, along with scans, molds, and x-rays of your teeth, your Invisalign will be fitted to your teeth. This video delves into the process so you know what to expect.
The first step is to apply an etch that cleanses the teeth and makes them temporarily more porous to better adhere to the aligner. Each tooth that will be under the aligner is taken into account. The etch is then rinsed off and the teeth are dried.
An adhesive is then applied to the teeth. The adhesive is left for a few seconds before being set in place with a blue light. Composite is then placed into the template for the aligners. Everything is tightly put together and blue light adheres it to your teeth. Occasionally, some filing may need to be done to properly fit the template.
The same process is repeated for the lower teeth. Composite is put into the template, which is fitted to the teeth and set with the blue LED light. Afterward, the templates are removed with the attachments left in place. For more information, check out the video above.
