How Invisalign is Made
Invisalign aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners customized to fit your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Scroggins determines are needed for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten.
You simply wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move, little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Scroggins has prescribed.
You’ll visit Dr. Scroggins about once every 8-12 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
