Dr. Wood on Invisalign Treatment Schedule

The Invisalign treatment process is straightforward from beginning to end. Our initial appointment involves gathering records to determine the best course of action for your dental needs. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect:

  1. Initial Consultation: We start by taking records and providing a simulated outcome of your teeth’s appearance before and after the treatment. This session is crucial for setting expectations and making any necessary adjustments to achieve the ideal bite.
  2. Starting the Treatment: The process begins with the placement of clear buttons on your teeth, followed by the provision of aligners. Depending on your specific case, you may receive up to 20 or more aligners. These aligners fit snugly over your teeth and gradually move them into the desired position.
  3. Regular Check-ups: Throughout the treatment, you’ll need to visit us every 6 to 8 weeks. These check-ups ensure that your teeth are moving correctly and allow us to make any necessary adjustments to the aligners.
  4. Final Steps: Once your teeth have aligned perfectly, we remove the buttons and provide you with a retainer to maintain the new position of your teeth.

The entire process typically takes between 9 to 16 months, depending on the complexity of your case. Our goal is to ensure a smooth and efficient treatment, resulting in a beautiful smile that you can be proud of.

What is Invisalign? Explained by Dr. Trenten Wood

The Invisalign Journey: A Clear Path to a Brighter Smile

Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Unlike braces, these aligners are virtually invisible and can be taken out, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss with ease. The journey to a straighter smile with Invisalign is straightforward, comfortable, and tailored to fit your individual needs.

Step 1: The Initial Consultation

Your Invisalign journey begins with an initial consultation at Dr. Wood’s office. During this visit, we’ll take detailed records of your teeth and discuss your smile goals. Using advanced imaging technology, we’ll provide a simulated outcome of your treatment, showing you how your teeth look now and how they will appear post-treatment. This simulation ensures that any adjustments needed can be made before the treatment starts, aiming for an ideal bite and smile at the end.

Step 2: Custom Aligners and Treatment Plan

Based on your records, a series of custom-made aligners will be created specifically for you. These aligners are designed to make small, precise movements to your teeth. The number of aligners varies depending on the complexity of your case, with some patients requiring up to 20 or more. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series.

Step 3: Regular Check-ins and Adjustments

Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you’ll visit Dr. Wood’s office approximately every 6 to 8 weeks. These check-ins allow us to monitor your progress and ensure that your teeth are moving as planned. It’s a crucial part of the process, ensuring that we achieve the correct tooth movement and stay on track towards your dream smile.

Step 4: The Final Touches

Once your teeth have moved into their ideal position, the clear buttons used to guide the aligners are removed. The final step in your Invisalign journey is receiving a custom retainer. Wearing your retainer as instructed is essential to maintain your new smile and prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position.

The Duration of Your Invisalign Treatment

The length of your Invisalign treatment can vary, typically ranging from 9 to 16 months, depending on the severity of your case. Dr. Wood and his team are committed to providing a personalized treatment plan that works efficiently and effectively, ensuring you achieve the best possible results in the shortest amount of time.

Featured Testimonials


“I chose Dr. Benefield after researching dentists in Grand Junction following a move from Arizona. I needed extensive work, including implants and a bridge. We discussed the cost and the time frame (about a year). After an exam, he quoted me a price for the total package. I could not have made a better choice. The whole staff are super careful about the pandemic, as well as very caring and professional. Dr. Benefield, (known in the office as ‘Dr Eric’), has worked diligently with me for the past 8 months and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He obviously enjoys what he does and makes every effort to make it as painless as possible.” ~ Jean
