Do you have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite? To help you achieve a straighter, healthier, more attractive smile, Dr. Myoungsoo Choi may recommend Invisalign® in Katy, Texas. Invisalign consists of a series of nearly invisible aligners. With Invisalign, you can straighten your smile with these simple steps.

Orthodontic Consultation
When you come in for your consultation, our orthodontist will speak with you about your orthodontic needs and desires. In addition, he will evaluate your smile to determine whether Invisalign is the right choice for you.

Treatment Plan Formed
Second, your unique treatment plan will be formulated. In order to accomplish this, your teeth will be scanned or impressions will be made. Using these impressions or scans, our orthodontist will map out your customized, precise treatment plan. This will include the projected movement of your teeth and an estimated length of treatment.

Your Invisalign Aligners
Your aligners will be custom made for your specific needs. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so there is no need to hide your smile during treatment! We suggest that you wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. You should take out your aligners when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth.

Straightening Progress
Each set of aligners will gently and slowly move your teeth towards their ideal positions. Our orthodontist may recommend that you progress to the next set of aligners each week. Your checkup appointments should occur about every six weeks.

After Invisalign Treatment
After your teeth have been straightened, a retainer may be recommended to help maintain your new, straightened smile.
