To determine if your case is treatable with Invisalign, our Comox dentists will complete a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums, jaw and bite.
What types of issues can be treated with Invisalign?
Invisalign can treat a variety of misalignment and malocclusion cases.
The Invisalign Assessment Process
Medical History Review & Oral Examination
Your dentist will begin by reviewing your medical and dental history and records to help determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
Next, your dentist will perform an oral examination to identify any issues that may not have been apparent in your dental records. This process will include:
- A physical examination of your teeth and gums
- Dental impressions
- X-ray imaging
Treatment Plan Discussion & Getting Started
Based on your medical history and oral exam, your dentist will determine if Invisalign is the right orthodontic treatment for you.
If you are a candidate for Invisalign, your dentist will discuss the details of your treatment plan with you, including your role in the process, the expected duration of your treatment, and any questions you have.
Next you're ready to schedule your first treatment appointment! The initial fitting for your aligners may take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, so make the appointment with that timeline in mind.
