Invisalign® Teen What to Expect

The Invisalign teen process begins with digital impressions taken in our Hazeldean Rd. office location. This is a painless process and doesn’t take long. These images are used to plan your treatment and order your custom aligners. We send them to Invisalign to create your custom aligners. Once delivered to our office, we will give you a call and set up the next appointment for a fitting.

At your next visit, Dr. Barakat will place your first aligner and go over all aspects of the rest of your treatment. You will change the aligners approximately every 2 weeks and wear them for about 22 hours each day. They are easily removed for cleaning, oral care, enjoying your favorite foods, and playing contact sports. Dr. Barakat will go over routine care instructions as well.

Once treatment is complete, a retainer should be worn according to the schedule recommended by Dr. Barakat. This is to ensure that your beautiful new smile will last for may years to come. Wearing your retainer according to the recommended schedule is very important! As you grow, your teeth may shift or adjust. The retainer helps control this natural process, and keep your teeth from reverting back to before braces.
