Bird Smiles Orthodontics, DC
The Procedure
Number 1

Come in for a consultation

This initial visit includes digital x-rays and a comprehensive exam. Dr. Talley or Dr. Clark will chat with you about your orthodontic treatment needs and determine if clear aligners are the ideal solution for you or your teen.

Number 2

Get an expert-designed treatment plan

One of our skilled team members will take quick, comfortable digital impressions with our iTero® scanner to create a computerized, 3D model of your mouth. The orthodontist will then design a precise treatment plan, mapping out the exact movements of each tooth directly on the model. We’ll even show you a preview of your new smile.

Number 3

Wear your custom Invisalign aligners

The Invisalign lab will use 3D-printing technology to translate our prescribed tooth movements into a series of custom clear aligners. When your aligners are ready, you’ll start wearing them for 20 to 22 hours per day, taking them out to eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth.

Number 4

Visit us for check-ups

We have most patients change to a new set of aligners every week. With each tray, your teeth will gradually shift into place. You’ll come by our office for a check-up every six to eight weeks, so Dr. Talley and Dr. Clark can keep tabs on your progress. These visits are quick and easy.

Number 5

Celebrate and maintain your new smile

When you take out your last set of Invisalign aligners, we’ll help you celebrate your flawless smile! To make sure you maintain your results for life, a team member will take one last digital scan of your teeth to create removable, clear Vivera® retainers for you. These retainers are custom-made using the same cutting-edge technology as Invisalign aligners.
