The clear way to a confident smile
Our next Invisalign treatment success story begins with you
Invisalign® treatment: The clear way to a confident smile
Invisalign clear aligners are practically – you guessed it – invisible, making them the option of choice for patients who prefer for their orthodontic treatment to go unnoticed. While you are busy with your daily activities, your Invisalign clear aligners are hard at work, gently shifting your teeth into place. Best of all, they are completely removable. You can take them out to do things like enjoying your favorite foods (no fear of broken brackets here!), playing sports, and brushing and flossing your teeth. Then when you’re done, you put them back in and go about your day.
Of course, everyone’s mouth is different, and that is why Prairie Grove Orthodontics offers a free consultation to help you determine if Invisalign treatment is the right choice for you. We’ll work together to make sure the answer is clear.
Go with a clear winner
Sure, there are other clear aligners out there to choose from, but only Invisalign treatment uses the world’s most advanced technology to get the most predictable and superior results. That makes it a clear winner in our book. Dr. Whetten and the Prairie Grove Orthodontics team have many years of experience and advanced training with Invisalign clear aligners, all to ensure that your Invisalign treatment plan delivers the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve.

Details are the difference between good treatment or great treatment. We obsess over every detail of your Invisalign treatment plan, from making sure that each tooth moves in its proper sequence and position to completing the final contouring of your biting surface. The end result: perfection.
