What Is the Process for Getting Invisalign® in Oxnard?
The first step is to come into the Oxnard office for a consultation with
our orthodontist. You will receive a dental examination, including x-rays,
and the orthodontist will make a recommendation for or against Invisalign®
based on your individual orthodontic needs.
Once you agree on a treatment plan and get all your questions answered,
detailed digital images will be taken of your teeth and gums. These will be
used to design a customized series of clear plastic trays that will gently
guide your teeth into the desired position over time.
When the first set of trays is ready, you will return to the office to pick
them up. You will wear the first set for approximately two weeks before
coming back to the office for the staff to assess your progress and provide
you with the next set of trays. You will return every few weeks after that
to pick up the next set of trays in the series.
Your provider will periodically check your progress. Once your treatment is
complete, you will be given a dental retainer to keep your teeth from
shifting out of place.
