The 7-Step Process of Getting Invisalign Treatment at Gorman & Bunch Orthodontics

At Gorman & Bunch Orthodontics, all five of our doctors have extensive experience providing Invisalign treatment to our patients — making us the #1 provider of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen in the state of Indiana. Our doctors, in fact, have successfully treated more patients with Invisalign than 99 percent of doctors in North America.

Part of the reason for that success has been the step-by-step process we have created for our patients to follow when getting Invisalign treatment at our practice. And in our experience, the patients who follow these seven steps see the best results in the quickest way possible for their personalized treatment plan.

The 7-Step Process of Getting Invisalign Treatment at Gorman & Bunch Orthodontics

. . .

STEP 1: Receive Your Complimentary Consultation

We offer a free initial consultation that consists of an oral examination, digital x-rays and photos, as well as a detailed discussion on the different treatment options — including Invisalign. In many cases, we can even begin treatment that same day.

STEP 2: Get Your Customized Invisalign Treatment Plan

Once you decide to move forward with Invisalign, we use our digital scanner to make a precise 3D model of your mouth, allowing us to create a customized treatment plan that shifts your teeth into the right place over 1-2 years.

STEP 3: Receive Your New Aligners

Next, you receive your clear, plastic Invisalign aligners to wear these for at least 20 hours per day — removing only for eating and brushing or flossing your teeth. If you play sports, we suggest wearing a mouthguard in order to protect your teeth and aligners.

STEP 4: Replace Aligners Every 1-2 Weeks

To reduce the amount of force we put on your teeth, we gradually shift your teeth in stages by giving you new aligners every 1-2 weeks. Sometimes, we need to adjust the timing and direction of your treatment, but we always keep you informed on where we stand at every stage of the treatment process.

STEP 5: Attend a Check-Up Every 12 Weeks

We recommend visiting our orthodontic offices every 12 weeks for a check-up. During this appointment, we evaluate the progress of your treatment and discuss any necessary changes.

STEP 6: Make Dental Hygiene a Priority

During your Invisalign journey, we recommend brushing and flossing regularly, in order to maintain a healthy smile. Additionally, we strongly recommend you follow a regular six-month cleaning with your dentist.

STEP 7: Enjoy Your New Smile

Finally — and this might be the most important step — share your new smile with the world once your Invisalign treatment concludes! We hope that you experience a new level of confidence and enjoy showing off your smile more than ever.

. . .

If you’ve ever been told Invisalign cannot work for your situation, we specialize in complex cases for teens and adults, and we’d love to talk with you about your options.

If you’re curious in learning more about Invisalign or in starting treatment, please reach out to schedule your initial complimentary consultation. We look forward to helping you become the healthiest version of yourself!

  • review rating 5  Cannot say enough good things about this practice! I've been to Westfield and Carmel locations, both are beautiful with helpful and friendly staff. Dr Bunch is experienced, knowledgeable, and truly cares about his patients and strives to get the best results possible for each one!

    review rating 5  This 64 year old had teeth that had begun to overlap in my adult years, which was attributed to having 4 good teeth removed as a child for "Crowded teeth". I waited to fund Invisalign until incurring no penalty for taking IRA funds, other than taxes. I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Jason Bunch by my dentist, Dr. Jack Nicewander. Dr. Bunch and his Carmel, IN office staff see numerous children and young adults, but welcome the young at heart as well. I trust them and find them accommodating, efficient, professional and compassionate.

  • review rating 5  Personal and professional, everyone always takes great care of my sensitive mouth teen! This is our first experience with needing orthodontia, when it’s time for my youngest to get braces, we’ll choose this place again in a heartbeat. From the team up front to the team in the back, everyone is so nice and yet so efficiently on task, it is quite impressive. They have reasonable pricing and are willing to help with a payment plan. Keep up the great work!!

    review rating 5  Fantastic staff who put the person (and their teeth!) at the center of the experience. Child-friendly waiting areas. I've had nothing but good experiences over my nearly 10 years with Gorman and Bunch. Cannot recommend highly enough!
