How does Invisalign work?

Once you have decided to pursue orthodontic treatment through Invisalign, digital impressions of your smile will be taken so your custom treatment plan and aligners can be created. We will have you come in for a follow-up appointment to try on your first aligner, ensure that it fits properly, and take the rest home. You will wear each aligner for 20-22 hours per day for two weeks before switching to the next aligner in the series. Periodic orthodontic visits will need to be scheduled so we can track your progress and give you your next set of aligners.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

  • No Food or Activity Restrictions
  • Fast and Effective Treatment Plans

Is Invisalign expensive?

Invisalign used to be far more expensive than metal braces, but the cost of Invisalign has actually come down over the years even as the technology has become more advanced and efficient. Some insurance plans offer partial coverage for orthodontic treatment, so we always recommend checking with your provider to see what they offer. Our office also accepts payment plans through CareCredit®, which can split the upfront cost of Invisalign into monthly payments that accrue little to no interest.

"This was the best experience with a dentist I've ever had. I had an implant done and was expecting a lot of pain. I had no pain at all. It was so refreshing to have a dentist who cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Orme and his staff at Southwest Dental Care."

- Sheryl B.

"I'm the kind of person who likes a real explanation of what's happening, even if I don't really understand half of it. Dr. Orme went the extra mile to explain everything in a casual and personable way without "dumbing it down". The office space is modern and fresh, and the staff is welcoming and characterful."

- John D.

"I worked with Dr. Orme in the Dominican Republic recently on a humanitarian trip. I watched him work hard every day at making the people feel good, creating an experience, as well as teaching those around him. He makes patients and co-workers feel good. He's positive, very upbeat, and I would recommend him strongly!!"

- Spencer C.

"He is the best dentist I have ever been to. He listens and only does what you want done without pressure. Very informative without the lecture. Dr. Orme and his staff are very friendly."
