How does it work?

Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by Dr. Eckels.

Step 1: Visit one of our offices in Parkersburg, Ripley, or Marietta for a free initial consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you. We will evaluate your tooth alignment, jaw alignment, and soft tissue balance, and make sure you’re willing to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours every day.

Step 2: Dr. Eckels uses Invisalign’s advanced computer technology to create precisely calibrated and manufactured aligners to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

Step 3: Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually, week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Invisalign treatment at Eckels Orthodontics usually takes about 20 to 60 weeks, and we’ll need to see you every eight weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.

Invisalign effectively treats the following cases:

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

Benefits of Invisalign:

  • Removable, so you can eat and drink what you like
  • Decreased irritation to gums and teeth
  • Easier brushing and flossing
  • Improved overall health
  • Increased self confidence

At Eckels Orthodontics we embrace the most advanced technology in order to improve your experience! Our iTero scanner provides easier, more accurate scanning for better results. One of the great benefits is that our iTero scanner eliminates the mess and gagging associated with impressions. The scanner allows us to help you see your teeth in 3D and how they may look at the end of Invisalign treatment. As a matter of fact, Dr. Eckels can use the scanner to do an Invisalign simulation when you come for your free initial consultation!
