How Invisalign® Works – Overview

Invisalign® is the most comfortable and preferable approach when it comes to orthodontic treatment. At studioSMILE Orthodontics in Overland Park, KS, we believe almost every patient is a candidate for Invisalign. Patients who need orthodontic treatment, but do not want to go through with the pain, discomfort and look of traditional metal braces, should contact our office for their complimentary consultation today. The Invisalign system, under the direction of Dr. Kelly Tabacchi, can treat all the problems or issues that traditional metal braces can treat.

How Invisalign Works

Overview of Treatment

The treatment process will depend on your individual case and needs. Some patients will complete their entire Invisalign treatment within 6 months, while some patients might need 2 years of treatment because they have a complicated orthodontic case. Most patients are excited to hear that Dr. Kelly will be able to complete their Invisalign treatment in about a year.  To begin, you will need to schedule a complimentary consultation with studioSMILE Orthodontics. She will assess your orthodontic needs utilizing state-of-the-art 3D Imaging along with assessing your teeth, bite, oral health during your examination smile to determine the specifics for your Invisalign treatment.

Once Dr. Kelly discusses your specific orthodontic needs, we will take your impressions to start your Invisalign journey.  We will send your impressions to the lab in order for your 3D Model to be started.  Dr. Kelly will personally make all of the adjustments to your 3D Model in order for your clear aligners to be made. Each set of your aligners will be worn for two weeks to ensure optimal movement as Dr. Kelly directs your treatment One on One.  You will change into your new sets at home before seeing Dr. Kelly generally anywhere between 8-12 weeks.  Changing your aligners every 2 weeks, allows for gradual tooth movement, causing less pain than with traditional metal braces.
