Following your consultation with Dr. Gomez, a 3D computerized image of your teeth will be made using state-of-the-art technology. This lets you see for yourself how your teeth will move during your treatment and also how your smile will look once your treatment is completed.
The aligners are custom made to fit your teeth and are exchanged approximately every two weeks for the next set of aligners in the collection. Your teeth are gently moved a little at a time until they reach their intended position. Generally, the treatment lasts between 9-15 months, and the number of aligners worn during that time varies from about 18-30. The aligners need to be worn both day and night, and you can expect to visit Dr. Gomez about every four weeks to check that progress is being made.
