Is the Invisalign® aligner customized for each patient?

Once your doctor scans your teeth with intraoral scanner. Then, the 3D plan or ClinCheck is set up. The 3D visual interface allows your doctor to customize your treatment.

How the Invisalign® aligner is made?

Patient’s teeth will be scan by intraoral scanner. The scanned file will be sent to laboratory to set up the treatment plan with your doctor.

How does Invisalign® work?

When The aligners fit over your teeth, aligner will gradually move your teeth horizontally, vertically, or even rotating them.

Once changing to your next aligner, this aligner will move your teeth into the programmed position that planned by your doctor
