The first step of treatment involves an initial consultation, during which Dr. Zahedi can assess the position of your teeth and the relationship between your jaws. Using an iTero® digital scanner, we can take 3-D images of your smile, which we will use to plan your treatment. Dr. Zahedi can map out the incremental movement of your teeth to ensure predictable results. He will then send the scans of your smile to the Invisalign lab, where they will be used to fabricate your customized aligners.
In most cases, patients can graduate from one set of Invisalign aligners to the next every few weeks, and they will require between 18 and 30 aligners. You will need to schedule follow-up visits to our office throughout treatment so we can monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed.
