After your orthodontist takes 3-D images of your mouth, custom aligner sets will be created for you. Each set is worn for about a week before switching to the next. The individual sets are perfectly calibrated to achieve specific tooth movements during that time, and in just a few months, you’ll begin to notice how your new smile is taking shape.
After your treatment is complete, you’ll be given a retainer to wear in order to protect your new smile. Follow your orthodontist’s recommendations about proper retainer wear to ensure you don’t lose all of the hard work you accomplished during your treatment.
