WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?
There can be a lot of information and many Invisalign imitations online, but rest assured you are on the website of a qualified and official Invisalign provider, Dr. Derek Harnish.
Usually choosing your dentist is the most difficult part of the journey since you want someone who will resonate with your long-term goals while being sensitive to your current needs.
Congratulations! You have completed the first step to the smile you’ve always wanted!
During your first consultation, Dr. Derek will examine your teeth and take some photos of your smile to show you how Invisalign can benefit you.
Then we will co-create your personalized treatment plan. Using the iTero Digital Scanner, we will take a fast and precise 3D scan of your teeth with the handheld wand. Forget about goopy impressions! (Spoiler alert: You will even get to see a preview of your future smile!)
Finally, Dr. Harnish will work directly with the official Invisalign lab to design and manufacture your full set of aligners you will change out every two weeks or so.
At periodic check-in points, you and Dr. Harnish will meet to assess your alignment progress and overall contentment with the treatment. For better and faster results, you have to wear your Invisalign aligners for an average of 20 hours per day, but you can remove them to eat whatever you want, give a presentation at work or school, and to brush and floss twice a day.
With smile improvements noticeably showing in just a few months, you’ll hardly notice the passing of time until your smile is perfect. Congratulations on the new-found confident you! Now get out there and give the world a reason to smile.
