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 3-D computer imaging technology that has been proven effective.
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.
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 the final position Dr. Maple has prescribed.

When you visit Maple Orthodontics to consider Invisalign® we will share with you our “impressionless” Invisalign® process and get you started with one of the most maintainable methods to straighten your smile. During your visit Dr. Maple and our talented team with determine if you are a candidate for this process and give you an overview of what you need to know about Invisalign® treatment. This personal one on one time is complimentary and will give you a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Our team will take x-rays, pictures, and a 100% digital scan of your teeth with our state-of-the-art iTero scanner, which avoids the mess of taking traditional impressions. The immediate results will allow Dr. Maple to show you a virtual representation of what your new smile will look like.
You will receive custom aligners that are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums. Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them only when you eat or brush your teeth. For best results, you will wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day.
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. Because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. Close to every two weeks you will progress into a new aligner. As your treatment progresses you will have regular checkups every 8 to 10 weeks to make sure your smile is on track!
After completion of your aligner cycle, you will meet with Dr. Maple to approve your finished smile. You will receive retainers to wear at night to maintain that perfect smile!

Designed to replace the “dreaded goop,” unpleasant taste, drooling, and gagging associated with traditional impression taking, iTero enables Maple Orthodontics to offer their patients a technology driven impression procedure that is far superior to conventional methods. By using a hand-held wand to optically scan the area, the patient’s’ entire impression is created 100% digitally with no mess or bad taste. This translates into a more comfortable impression process and an improved fit of the Invisalign® aligners.
No, the scan is part of your complimentary examination for Invisalign®.
