Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth, improving function, gum health, and esthetics. A series of clear removable aligners is worn to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
Using iTero digital imaging, patient records are acquired so that Dr. Whitson and Invisalign can make the best and most efficient plan to straighten your teeth. You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to their final position.
You’ll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the number of aligners is between 18-30, but both will vary from case to case. Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research and in dental practices nationwide, including ours. Dr. Whitson is a Preferred Provider of Invisalign. He has been using Invisalign and other orthodontic appliances to help patients straighten hundreds of smiles over the last 15 years.
