The Clear Aligner Therapy Treatment Process

Consultation & Digital Imaging

During your initial consultation, your Louisville orthodontist will get to know you and your smile goals, and determine if clear aligner therapy is right for you. First, we’ll examine your oral health to check for gaps and crowding, and ensure your gums are healthy enough for treatment. We will then take 3D scans of your mouth to create a digital mockup to plan your treatment and even give you a sneak preview of what your smile will look like after your clear aligner therapy is finished.

Aligner Pick-Up

Once your initial set of aligners is ready, you'll visit our office to collect them and have your attachments placed. During this appointment, your orthodontist will provide detailed instructions on how to wear the aligners effectively for optimal results. In most cases, patients are advised to wear their aligners for a minimum of 20-22 hours per day. Every week or two, you'll transition to the next set of aligners, replacing the current ones. However, the frequency of switching aligners may vary depending on factors such as your bone quality and how your teeth respond to the planned movements. Your orthodontist will guide you accordingly, ensuring the best approach for your unique situation.


To ensure your progress stays on course, we'll schedule check-ins every 8-10 weeks. These regular appointments serve a dual purpose: assessing your progress and providing you with your upcoming sets of aligners. By diligently adhering to the prescribed daily wear time, your aligners will keep working their magic, gradually shifting your smile into its desired position. For added convenience, we also offer virtual check-in visits for certain minor appointments, making it even easier to stay connected with your orthodontist.

Maintain Your Smile

Once your treatment is complete, you'll receive a set of retainers to ensure the longevity of your beautiful new smile. These retainers, while resembling your original Invisalign aligners, are specifically designed for long-term use, built to withstand greater pressure without losing their effectiveness. To maintain the alignment of your teeth for years to come, it is generally recommended to wear these retainers nightly. By faithfully following this routine, you can enjoy the benefits of your transformed smile well into the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

How do clear aligners work?

Clear aligners utilize a series of custom-crafted aligners that gradually straighten your teeth over time. Each aligner tray is worn for about one week, and will gently shift your teeth closer to their ideal placement. Depending on the severity of the misalignment, treatment can take anywhere from several months up to two years, though most patients wear their clear aligners for about a year.

Are clear aligners safe?

Yes! All aligners are made of BPA-free, medical-grade clear plastic for your comfort and continued health and well being.

Are clear aligners faster than traditional braces?

While the length of treatment can vary based on each patient’s individual needs, clear aligner therapy can often provide quicker results than traditional braces. Because the aligners push on all teeth, instead of pulling or pushing on each tooth individually like with traditional braces, they can dramatically, but gently, shift your teeth faster. However, to achieve the results you’re looking for in the least time possible, it’s important to follow your orthodontist’s instructions for wearing your custom-made clear aligners.

What is the difference between clear aligner therapy and traditional braces?

While traditional braces rely on metal or ceramic brackets that are secured to each individual tooth and connected by metal wires, clear aligners gently and discreetly shift your teeth with barely noticeable plastic trays. Patients also find clear aligners to be more comfortable than traditional braces, because there are no sharp points to cause irritation or discomfort. Plus, clear aligners are easily removable so you can quickly take them out for meals, photos, and other functions, and place them back in at any time. However, clear aligners aren’t right for everyone. If you’re struggling with more complex issues like a  malpositioned jaw or severely misaligned bite, braces are a more versatile and powerful type of orthodontic treatment.

How much do clear aligners cost?

The cost of clear aligners can vary from patient to patient. A variety of factors, like the severity of your case and the insurance you have can affect the cost of your treatment. To find out how much you’ll pay for clear aligner therapy, schedule a consultation with your orthodontist.
