Discover the benefits of Invisalign at our office in Alexandria, VA and how it compares to traditional braces, as we guide you through your journey to a stunning smile.
The Invisalign Process
- Consultation and Decision: Together with Dr. Rangiani, you’ll determine the best treatment for you – Invisalign or braces.
- Advanced Technology: Our cutting-edge Itero technology eliminates the need for dental impressions. We scan your teeth and provide a preliminary view of your future smile during a quick 30-minute appointment.
- Customized Treatment Plan: We send the scans to Invisalign and develop a tailored treatment plan based on your specific needs. Aligner manufacturing takes 3-5 weeks, depending on the complexity of your case.
- Aligner Delivery and Attachments: Once your aligners arrive, we schedule an appointment to fit the attachments and deliver your aligners. This appointment typically takes 45-60 minutes.
- Regular Check-ups: Dr. Rangiani prefers to see you at a maximum of 2-month intervals to ensure your treatment progresses as planned and attachments remain intact.
- Aligner Progression: You’ll wear each aligner for 7-10 days, depending on the severity of your case and the amount of tooth movement required.
- Finishing Touches: Once your treatment is complete, we’ll remove the attachments and provide you with your final retainers.
