How Does Invisalign Work?
After your first consultation with South San Francisco dentist Dr. Hovden, you will follow an easy step-by-step process for your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Hovden will begin by taking x-rays of your mouth so that the Invisalign aligners can be formed perfectly to fit your teeth, as well as the series of aligners that will gradually and comfortably create your beautiful new smile. You will receive a new set of clear aligners every couple of weeks depending on your treatment plan to keep your teeth gradually shifting into the correct position.
