What is the process with Invisalign? At Columbia Town Center Orthodontics, our first step is using the iTero Element scanner to take a digital impression of your teeth. This scan is fast, comfortable, and precise. Once we take the digital scan and other necessary records, we can create a treatment plan that is right for you. After a few weeks, you will return to the office to receive your first set of aligners. After that, simply wear your aligners for the recommended period of time each day and visit our Howard County office periodically during the course of your treatment.

Invisalign services for teens is an easy, effective, reliable orthodontic treatment that eliminates anxiety about brace hygiene without creating noticeable change in appearance for the duration of the treatment period.
