Invisalign® uses a series of aligners to straighten your teeth. Because the trays are invisible, removable, and comfortable, no one can tell you’re wearing them. So, you can smile more during treatment. Invisalign® is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.
Invisalign is a proven treatment for those needing braces to straighten or correct their teeth and smile. While other braces are available, there are a number of reasons you will want to choose Invisalign® from your local New Albany orthodontist. Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan right from the start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
The clear trays without metal or wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem.
Your teeth will be scanned using our iTero scanner and a series of aligner trays will be custom crafted for you. You wear each set of aligners for about a week, 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.
Text: First you should visit Maple Orthodontics for a complimentary consultation, during which, Dr. Maple and our talented team will determine if you are a candidate for this process. They will give you an overview of what you need to know about Invisalign® treatment and get you started with one of the most maintainable methods to straighten your smile. This personal one-on-one time will give you a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have about Invisalign® or Dr. Maple as an Invisalign® Platinum Preferred Provider in New Albany.
When you’re ready to get started with your treatment, 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 allow Dr. Maple to show you a virtual representation of what your new smile will look like.
You will receive custom aligners 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 need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day.
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin shifting into place. Because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. Weekly you will progress into a new aligner. 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 alignment. You will receive retainers to wear at night to maintain that perfect smile!
Invisalign® aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible! Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them.

With Invisalign®, you’re free to eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want because the aligners are completely removable. This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would.

Text: This “impressionless” process is designed to replace the unpleasant taste, drooling, and gagging associated with the “dreaded goop” of traditional impression taking. iTero enables Maple Orthodontics to offer their patients a technology-driven impression procedure that is far superior to conventional methods.
Text: One of Dr. Maple’s assistants will use a hand-held wand to optically scan the area, creating the patient’s impression 100% digitally with no mess or bad taste. This translates into a more comfortable impression process and an improved fit of the Invisalign® aligners. Plus, a full oral scan can be completed in as little as 10 minutes!
The scan is part of your complimentary examination for Invisalign®.
