How to Use the Invisalign Smartphone App

By June 10, 2019 June 12th, 2019 No Comments

At our orthodontic offices in Naperville and Shorewood, patients are always wanting to learn more about how Invisalign can give them the smile of their dreams. Using the latest orthodontic imaging and 3D technology, Invisalign has been providing a discreet, effective alternative to traditional braces for nearly 20 years. Invisalign straightens your teeth through the use of clear, plastic aligners that are custom-made for each individual’s teeth. As Diamond Plus Invisalign Providers in Naperville and Shorewood, the doctors at Innovative Orthodontic Centers are skilled in creating effective treatment plans for their patients.

For those looking for a straighter smile but want to avoid a mouth full of metal, Invisalign is clearly (pun intended) the perfect orthodontic treatment. But did you know Invisalign can also be a fun experience? With the My Invisalign Smile smartphone app, you can turn your treatment into an interactive timeline of your smile’s transformation. With answers to your burning questions, progress trackers, reminders and more, the Invisalign app is guaranteed to keep your new smile on track.

The My Invisalign Smile app was developed by Align Technology, the same company that creates your clear Invisalign aligners. It was designed to support Invisalign patients through the process by providing tools and resources to stick to your treatment plan. The app is available for iPhone in the App Store and for Android users on Google Play.

Read on to discover how to get the most out of the My Invisalign Smile app.

See Your Smile Transform

When you’re going through any orthodontic treatment process, it can sometimes feel like nothing is moving forward. Each day when you look in the mirror, you expect to see a new you — but the changes from day-to-day are usually too small for the untrained eye to see. One of the coolest features of the My Invisalign Smile app is that you can track the progress of your treatment, from day one to the day you can kiss your aligners goodbye. You can literally see the change taking place before your eyes.

Here’s how it works: each time you switch to a new set of aligners (typically every one or two weeks), you take a photo of your updated smile. These images are all compiled together automatically into a gallery, where you can compare them side-by-side and see your new smile taking shape. Bonus: you can even take a timelapse video of your teeth, and share updates on social media or with family and friends. Not only does this let you know Invisalign is actually working — it will give you the motivation you need to keep on top of your treatment.

Stay on Top of Your Treatment Plan

Speaking of being diligent about your Invisalign treatment, the My Invisalign Smile app is the perfect tool to help you stay on track. After all, forgetting to wear your aligners or change to your next set on time can prolong your treatment. It’s important to follow the plan your orthodontist prescribed for you to a T.

Fortunately, you can program your treatment schedule into your My Invisalign Smile app. You’ll get automated reminders and notifications when it’s time to switch to a new set of aligners. With your treatment calendar on hand at all times, you’ll never have to worry about delaying the day when you can show off your new smile to the world.

Always Be in the Know

When you’re new to Invisalign, it’s totally normal to have a few (or a lot!) of questions about best practices and how the process works. The Invisalign app is the ultimate resource for everything you need to know. Not sure how often you have to wear your aligners? Confused about how to clean them? Wondering when you should book your next visit with your orthodontist? The answers to these questions, and so many more, are just a touch away.

Having answers in your pocket will make you more confident throughout your Invisalign treatment and help cut down on unnecessary phone calls or visits to your orthodontist. Any time you have a question or concern, you can simply turn to the app for solutions. This gives you the tools to be more compliant with your treatment plan, meaning fewer delays in achieving your perfect smile.

Every Invisalign patient takes a personal journey to transform their smile. The My Invisalign Smile app is a trusted partner that helps new and existing patients stay on track, feel motivated and find answers to common questions. When Invisalign patients pair their treatment with the Invisalign mobile app, they enjoy a 360-degree solution that helps them keep moving forward towards their best smile.
