While Invisalign aligners are a powerful tool, a lot goes on behind the scenes to get you fantastic results. Here’s what happens when we straighten your teeth using the treatment:
A Procedure as
Cutting-Edge as the Treatment Itself
Consultation with Dr. Hawley
At your free consultation in our Papillion, Nebraska orthodontic office, Dr. Hawley will examine your mouth and let you know if Invisalign is the right treatment for your needs. If it is, a member of the team will go over what you can expect, the cost and answer any questions you have.
Create a Digital 3D Image of Your Mouth
The Hawley Orthodontics team will take photos and digital impressions using our high-tech iTero scanner. We then put this information into a computer program to create an extremely accurate 3D model of your mouth. Dr. Hawley adjusts the position of each individual tooth directly on the 3D model giving him complete control over your tooth movements. You’ll even be able to see what your smile will look like at every stage of treatment!
Pick Up Your Custom Aligners
Dr. Hawley devises treatment specifications that are used to create clear, BPA-free plastic aligners just for you. You’ll wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day, taking them out to eat and brush and floss your teeth.
Wear New Aligners Every Week
Approximately every week, you’ll pop in a new set of aligners. Your teeth will gradually straighten according to Dr. Hawley's prescription as you move through the trays. You won’t need any adjustments but you’ll come in for regular appointments so we can monitor your progress.
Reveal Your New Smile!
After you wear your final set of aligners, you’ll have straight teeth and a gorgeous smile. We’ll fit you for a retainer so you can maintain your results for life.
