How Invisalign® Creates Beautifully Straight Smiles

Is it possible to achieve beautifully straight teeth without traditional wire braces? Yes. Welcome to modern orthodontic treatment with Invisalign®. 

It’s not magic. It’s science in action. Here’s how we help you experience an unforgettable smile with Invisalign®:  

1. See Dr. Whitlock for a Complimentary Consultation 

It’s simple and free to see if Invisalign® will work for you. During your consultation, Dr. Whitlock and his team will assess your oral health and analyze whether Invisalign® is the best treatment solution for your specific situation. His experience in using Invisalign® as a cosmetic and oral health solution provides patients the confidence they deserve in seeking orthodontic treatment. 

2. We Create Your Personalized Treatment Plan 

The road to your beautifully straight smile begins with a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Whitlock and his team will take detailed images and impressions of your teeth to determine your Invisalign® pathway. Your plan will detail the length of treatment, the expected results and financial arrangements for care. Your timeline for transformation involves many factors, but adults can typically expect about a year and teenagers around eighteen months. 

3. Your New Aligners Are Ready To Use 

When your new aligners are ready, Dr. Whitlock and his team will walk you through the simple process of wearing them. Invisalign® clear aligners are made of BPA-free smooth plastic and are specifically designed for your teeth. So you can fully expect them to fit nicely and be comfortable as you wear them for about 20 to 22 hours a day. Remember, they can be removed to eat, drink or engage in activities where removal is helpful. 

4. Follow Your Schedule 

As each Invisalign® aligner gently moves your teeth into position, you will need to switch to a new next-step aligner about every two weeks. Precision crafted, each aligner is designed to build upon the previous aligner to shift your teeth about 1/10mm per tray. With each new aligner, you will begin to see your teeth move closer and closer to their final destination. Dr. Whitlock and his team will see you at regular intervals throughout your treatment to ensure everything is moving according to schedule. 

5. Enjoy The Confidence of Your Beautifully Straight Smile 

When your treatment is complete, you’ll be flashing your new confident smile for the world to see. For some patients a follow-up retainer may be worn for a while to ensure your beautifully straight smile remains aligned.
