Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A consultation with your doctor can determine if Invisalign is right for you. Dr. Henson has successfully treated patients using Invisalign technology and earned the status as a Certified Premier Provider for Invisalign.
At the office, Dr. Henson has created a private treatment room specifically designed for the treatment of adults using Invisalign. You will experience a private and relaxing atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the main clinic area to enjoy during your aligner changes. We want to elevate your experience as much as possible creating a comfortable oasis in our office where the focus is on you and the betterment of your smile. If you desire to have that beautiful and confident smile and don’t want the look of braces, Invisalign may be an excellent option for you.
Visit our office and check out the Center of Invisalign and you will be well on your way to the smile you always have wanted without the hardware.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two 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 the final position your doctor has prescribed. You’ll visit our practice about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
