Every other week, you put in a new set with a slightly different form so that your teeth are gradually aligned.

During our second appointment, we make scans, intraoral (mouth) and extraoral (facial) photos, and x-rays. Together, this is formed into a 3D simulation; a virtual setup of how your teeth will move. After the doctor has checked everything, we present you with the final plan and order the complete set of cases/aligners. Within two weeks this set is sent to the practice, after which we put on your braces.
Every 6, 8, or 12 weeks we expect you to come in for a checkup. During this appointment, we can make the necessary adjustments, answer any questions you may have, and make sure the treatment is going according to plan.
Nearing the end
When the treatment is coming to its end, we sit together to discuss your results. If the original goals are reached, we can go ahead and order your night retainers or splints. It may also be possible that more braces are required.
