Invisalign has revolutionized how traditional braces are perceived, offering clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to gently adjust teeth alignment. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign is discreet and comfortable; the aligners are almost invisible. It is an effective option for those who want to enhance their smile.

We take pride in being the #1 Invisalign provider in the country at our practice. Our knowledgeable orthodontic specialists are committed to delivering excellent results and exceptional patient care. We also provide virtual Invisalign consultations, which are convenient and easy for you to initiate your journey to a better smile.

All new Invisalign patient consultations at NVO are set for a duration of 45 minutes. During this time, the orthodontist will assess the patient’s teeth and bite, discuss treatment objectives, and clarify the Invisalign treatment procedure. In addition, the orthodontist may capture images and X-rays of the patient’s teeth and use modern technology to create a digital impression of their mouth. This data will facilitate the orthodontist in devising an individualized treatment plan for the patient or their child. Any questions or apprehensions that arise during the consultation will also be addressed by the orthodontist.

Northern Virginia Orthodontics acknowledges the significance of flexibility and busy family schedules, as a result, provides virtual Invisalign consultations during early morning and evening hours and on certain Saturdays to accommodate your hectic schedule. Whether it’s Invisalign for you or Invisalign For Kids for your child, NVO has got you covered.

What To Expect At An Invisalign Consultation

During your Invisalign consultation with NVO, you will meet with an orthodontist who will assess your teeth and bite and discuss your treatment goals. Here is an overview of what to expect during the consultation:

    • Evaluation: The orthodontist will examine your teeth, jaws, and bite to determine if Invisalign is suitable. They may also capture photographs, X-rays, and digital impressions of your teeth to create a 3D image of your mouth.
    • Treatment plan: Based on the evaluation, the orthodontist will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. They will discuss the treatment process and explain how Invisalign can help you achieve your desired outcome.
    • Virtual simulation: With the 3D image of your mouth, the orthodontist can create a virtual simulation of how your teeth will move during Invisalign treatment. This can help you visualize the appearance of your smile after treatment.
    • Cost and payment options: The orthodontist will provide you with a cost estimate for the treatment and discuss payment options and financing plans, if necessary.
    • Questions and concerns: You will have the opportunity to ask any questions or raise any concerns you may have about Invisalign or the treatment process.

By the end of the consultation, you should clearly understand whether Invisalign is the best treatment option for you, how it functions, the expected timeline for treatment, and the associated cost.

How Long Does It Take To Get Your Invisalign Aligners

The time between the Invisalign consultation and receiving aligners can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the orthodontic practice’s protocols. In certain cases, the orthodontist may be able to commence the Invisalign case process immediately after the consultation. However, extra appointments may be necessary if the patient requires additional care from their general dentist or an oral surgeon.

Once the treatment plan has been devised, the orthodontist will send your digital impressions to the laboratory, where custom aligners will be produced. This process typically takes a few weeks. After the aligners are ready, you will be scheduled for a follow-up appointment to receive the first set of aligners and learn how to wear and care for them properly.
