A Discreet Way to Straighten Teeth 3 Advantages of Invisalign

Whether you need to straighten a single crooked tooth or have several concerns, consider why Invisalign is so popular:

Comfortable Treatment

Invisalign trays are made out of smooth plastic, so they will not hurt your mouth or cause irritation to the soft tissue like braces. Patients who play sports especially may find removable aligners safer and more suited to their lifestyle.

Easy to Use

While undergoing Invisalign treatment, you can continue to enjoy the foods you love without worrying about damaging your orthodontic appliance. Simply remove your aligners while eating, brushing, and flossing, and wear them when you're not.

Better Self-Confidence 

Patients don't need to feel self-conscious about their appearance in clear aligners. It is very difficult to notice if someone is wearing Invisalign in person and nearly impossible to tell in pictures. Once treatment is complete, you can take pride in your newly straightened teeth and confidently show off your smile.

Take a Look at Our Results

Patients will wear a series of flexible clear aligner trays for 20 to 22 hours a day. As the series progresses, your teeth are gently shifted into the proper position, giving you a stunning smile and a balanced bite.

Does Invisalign Work for Teenagers?

Invisalign is an incredible solution for virtually anyone whose teeth have fully developed. This is marked by the arrival of the second set of permanent molars, which usually happens after age 12. While Invisalign is suitable for patients of all ages, it can be particularly appealing to teenagers who shudder at the thought of braces. If you have concerns that your child may not wear their aligners consistently enough, don't worry. Our Corpus Christi office offers Invisalign Teen, which contains a built-in monitoring feature to track daily wear. Now you can feel confident that you are getting the full value out of treatment while your teen can feel confident in their appearance. 

High-Tech Orthodontic Planning

Visualize Your Results with Digital Imaging

Our Corpus Christi, TX, practice is equipped with the latest dental technology to design and carry out your treatment. We use the innovative iTero® intraoral camera to take digital scans of your teeth with maximum speed and precision. Patients will then be able to see a virtual sneak preview of their results after they complete treatment. 

We strive to deliver results that meet, if not surpass, your expectations. This tool is just one way we can help you become more involved in the decision of whether or not Invisalign is right for you.

The Timeline of Your Orthodontic Treatment

We use digital impressions to precisely plan treatment and also show patients a sneak peek of their results.

We begin treatment with a consultation to examine your teeth and discuss your candidacy. Our dentists will take digital impressions of your smile with our high-tech iTero® intraoral scanner and design your treatment plan.

Aligner Fabrication

These impressions and other specifications are sent to the Invisalign lab, where technicians craft your custom series of aligners. Once your mouthpieces arrive, we will give you instructions on proper use and maintenance.

Daily Wear

You will wear each aligner for about two weeks before replacing it with the next one in the series. Patients should have their trays in place for at least 20-22 hours a day, taking them out only to eat, brush, and floss. 


Each mouthpiece is molded slightly differently to slowly straighten your teeth into proper alignment. You will return to our office about every six weeks so we can monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments. This may include placing an Invisalign attachment (a small piece of bonding material) to a tooth to increase the predictability of movement. 


Depending upon your needs, treatment may last a few months or more than a year. After you have worn the last aligner in the series, we will provide you with a removable retainer to protect your results. 

Is there any way to see results faster?

You May Qualify for Invisalign Express

Invisalign Express works similarly to the traditional clear aligners but with fewer trays in the series, cuts down on the treatment time. The Express system is best for cases of minor misalignment, or for patients who have relapsed from a previous orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign Express will only target teeth that are rotated or crooked and will not address issues with your bite. However, if you do qualify for treatment, you will typically see your results in less than six months' time

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

While it is impossible to give you an exact estimate without first examining your smile, Invisalign is typically just as affordable as traditional orthodontics. Some insurance providers even cover parts of your treatment costs depending on your plan. We also accept financing through CareCredit®. Our Corpus Christi office will work directly with you to coordinate a payment plan that works within your budget so you can enjoy all the benefits of a straight, healthy smile.  

5 Stars!

"I am so grateful that I found this team...My teeth were so embarrassing to me. When I met Dr. Orchard he put me at ease immediately. He reassured me I would have a smile to be proud of. Considering I had trained myself not to smile this meant so much to me. I explained my budget was limited and he devised a plan that would be attainable for me... I give Dr. Orchard and his staff five stars. You will not go wrong looking to them for your dental care."
