How is Invisalign treatment performed?
It is easy and almost painless. All you have to do is to trust your orthodontist. More specifically, as mentioned in the Invisalign online seminar, the orthodontist performs a digital scan of the mouth and teeth. This way, he creates a progressive digital movement, which leads each tooth individually to its desired final position. In addition, for every step in between, the doctor makes a set of membranes, both for the upper and for the lower jaw. The patient, in turn, receives these sets of membranes. After 5-7 days, the patient removes the first set of membranes and wears the next one. The membrane sets are prefabricated, before the onset of the treatment.
What are the instructions regarding treatment?
Since you have selected the Invisalign method, you will need to follow certain instructions, exactly as you will be instructed to do so by the Invisalign orthodontist. More specifically, it is necessary for the membranes to remain in the oral cavity at least 22 hours a day. You can only remove them before a meal and to brush your teeth. It is important to follow this measure in order to achieve the best result in your effort. You do not need to visit the orthodontic clinic to change the membranes! You can easily change them at the convenience of your own home, after 5-7 days. Invisible orthodontics and lingual orthodontics can complement one another, for a more complete orthodontic intervention, if necessary.
