Are you about to improve the health and appearance of your smile with Invisalign®? If so, our orthodontic team is so excited for you! To help you know what to expect during treatment, we would like to explain the different steps involved. Those steps are:

Step 1: First, we will begin treatment by taking a series of X-rays of your entire oral cavity. These X-rays will help Dr. Niloufer Hamsayeh create an individualized treatment plan just for you. If you would like, the technology used to examine your smile can also show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will shift throughout time.

Step 2: Next, we will create a series of aligners that will begin to move your teeth. It’s recommended to wear the aligner for 20 to 22 hours a day, but take it out when you eat food or brush and floss your teeth. The aligner will be made of smooth, comfortable plastic that will keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.

Step 3: You will come back to Niloufer G. Hamsayeh, DDS every two weeks to receive a new set of aligners. The new set will bring you one step closer to your perfect smile.

Invisalign is a simple treatment that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. If you have any questions about the treatment or if you would like to learn more, please feel free to call our office today at 415.682.6377. We are happy to help you in any way we can, and we look forward to hearing from you!
