The Invisalign Process

For many adults, the thought of traditional braces can be intimidating. That’s why Burrow Welchel & Culp Orthodontics is proud to offer Invisalign in Charlotte, NC, an alternative to braces that is practically invisible and can be removed for eating and brushing!

Initial Consultation

The first step in getting Invisalign is scheduling an initial consultation with our team of top-rated orthodontists. During this appointment, we will discuss your treatment goals, perform a comprehensive exam complete with X-rays, and review all of your options for treatment. We will also take the time to answer all your questions about our advanced treatments and technology, our flexible payment options, and anything else you may want to know about us!

Mapping Out Your Treatment Plan

Once it has been determined that Invisalign is right for you, our orthodontists will map out a treatment plan that includes a preview of what your smile will look like and the number of aligners it will take to reach that goal. We’ll also discuss how long your treatment should last and how often you should come in for follow-ups throughout the process.

Using Aligners To Move Your Teeth

Once your aligners are ready, you’ll come into our office to pick them up and wear them as our team instructed. Generally speaking, most people wear their aligners for about 20-22 hours per day every day until they reach their desired results—although this may vary depending on each individual case. You should also schedule regular checkups so that we can monitor your progress throughout the process!

Benefits Of Invisalign Treatment


One of the biggest advantages of using Invisalign is that it is much more convenient than traditional braces. With conventional braces, you have to visit our office more often to have them tightened. However, with Invisalign, you can simply change out your aligners at home following our recommended timeline! This makes it much easier to continue your normal routine and saves you time with your treatment.


Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic material, so they won’t irritate your gums or the inside of your mouth. This means you can go about your day-to-day activities without worrying about any pain or discomfort from wearing metal braces. Additionally, because they are removable, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods without worrying about any food getting stuck in between your braces!


Finally, one of the most obvious benefits of Invisalign is its appearance. Because the aligners are clear and virtually invisible when worn, no one can even tell that you’re wearing them! This makes Invisalign a great option for anyone who wants straighter teeth but doesn’t want to draw unwanted attention with metal braces. Plus, since they are removable, you can take them off whenever necessary to maintain good oral hygiene and keep a natural and professional appearance!
