How Often Should I Visit the Dentist During Invisalign Treatment?
The quick and to the point answer for how often do you need to visit your dentist for Invsialign treatment – at least two times.
Appointment 1 – Invisalign Consultation
The first appointment is your consultation with the dentist to discuss your goals and the treatment.
Appointment #2 – Invisalign Aligners Pick-Up
The second appointment is to pick up your Invisalign aligners and review what you will need to do during your treatment in regards to how often you should wear your aligners and how often you will need to switch them out.
So you will need at least two appointments.
Beyond Appointment #2
At some dental practices you will only need a total of 2 appointments during your entire Invisalign treatment. At other dental practices, the dentist may want you to check in every few weeks to assess the progress of your treatment and make any adjustments to your treatment if necessary.
What We Recommend for Invisalign Treatment Visits
An Invisalign treatment can be used to gently correct crooked teeth in your smile and since we want to make sure you have an amazing straight smile following your treatment, we prefer our patients to come in more than two times.
After you have discussed the benefits of Invisalign with your dentist during your consultation, you will be ready to start your treatment. In order to make sure that your clear braces are properly correcting your smile, you will need to make routine visits to your dental office to check on your progress.
Depending on the nature of your treatment, your dentist may have specific recommendations about how often you should come in for treatment.
Typically, adult Invisalign patients will need to visit the dentist at least once every six weeks. During your visits, your dentist will make sure that your aligners are doing their job properly. It may also be necessary for your dentist to provide you with aligners that fit differently throughout the course of your treatment. By taking the time to visit your dentist while you are using Invisalign, you can ensure that you get the best possible results.
At Remarkable Smiles of Issaquah, we want to ensure that our patients get the best possible dental care and outcome which is why we recommend that our patients visit our practice every few weeks during their treatment. The total number of times you would need to come in will depend upon the length of your treatment and this can vary based on individual needs.
