How Invisalign® Works – The Treatment Process

Traditional braces can be a major life adjustment, as they are very visible and hard to ignore. Invisalign® clear aligners, on the other hand, straighten teeth while being transparent, plastic, and subtle. This option is especially popular in adults who need bite adjustment. Firouz Orthodontics is a partner with Invisalign® to ensure our patients receive optimal dental care. 

Invisalign® Treatment Process invisalign positioning

The Invisalign® treatment process is safe, easy, and can be broken down into four simple steps. 


  • Consult with a dentist about the option of Invisalign®. Before your personalized scan, you will need to make sure this is the best teeth straightening treatment for you.
  • Get a personalized scan of your teeth from your dentist. All patients’ mouths are different. Overcrowding, gaps, crossbite, overbite, and underbite are all possible factors of crooked teeth. Develop a personalized plan for your teeth treatment.
  • Clear aligners are custom made in SmartTrack® material. Each patient’s personalized scan tells the system how to cut the aligners. They are made of a specialized material and trimmed to perfection.
  • Pick up your Invisalign®! On the first day of your Invisalign® treatment, you will try on the clear aligners with your dentist. This appointment will determine if your Invisalign® fits properly, and allow you to ask your dentist any questions you have. 


Why Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is the recommended teeth straightening treatment for a number of reasons. With state-of-the-art 3D printing technology, Invisalign® has straightened over 7 million smiles. Additionally, it is a more flexible option than traditional braces because the aligners can be removed. Invisalign is hygienic and comfortable too. There are also no emergencies as with traditional braces, so it is excellent for patients who travel and additionally, there are no diet restrictions. Invisalign is a trustworthy solution to a cosmetic and functional bite improvement that teens and adults can take advantage of.  If you have any questions about how Invisalign® works, give our office a call!
