How Invisalign Works

The Process

At your complimentary new patient exam, your treatment coordinator will take a fast and comfortable scan of your teeth. The doctor will then go over your treatment simulation to show you what your #LOAinvisalignsmile will look like at the conclusion of Invisalign treatment. Once all of your questions have been answered, we will get to work creating your aligners.
Behind the scenes our specialized digital team is moving teeth into position and utilizing the most current and effective protocols to achieve the very best clinical outcomes for our patients. We take pride in staying current and on the cutting edge with aligners and LOA is in the top 1% of Invisalign providers worldwide.

Getting Started with Invisalign

Once your LOA Doctor has determined how many sets of aligners you need, your custom aligners are created by Invisalign. These will be made of SmartTrack® material which provides a smooth and comfortable fit. Patients are asked to wear their aligners for 22 hours per day, leaving time to eat and brush their teeth. The total number of aligners worn during Invisalign treatment varies from patient to patient depending on their individual case and the movements required. Most patients require 2-3 series of aligners to achieve an A+ result.

Your Invisalign Treatment

As you wear your aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into their new positions and will typically schedule check-ups in our Lancaster, Landisville, Leola or Lititz office every twelve weeks or so. LOA Orthodontics’ average Invisalign treatment time is currently 15 months and we are continually exploring ways to reduce that time, just for you!
