For many patients, orthodontic treatment isn’t just about getting straighter teeth. It’s also about building self-confidence.
Here at Hamilton Wilson & Hendrickson Orthodontics, we understand that building self-confidence and self-esteem are important for children, teenagers, and adults. With that in mind, we work to create a beautiful smile you or your child can be proud to show.
That is why we offer Invisalign®, which can solve many dental issues while maintaining a low profile. The clear aligners can treat overbites, underbites, gapped teeth, crossbites, and other dental issues. The best part is, it’s all done without the visible metal of standard braces.
Invisalign produces beautiful smiles that can be shown off even during treatment.
Many Invisalign patients note how the clear aligners build their confidence, even during treatment.
Heather Akers, a patient with Hamilton Wilson & Hendrickson Orthodontics, said treatment using Invisalign helped build her confidence in her smile.
She came to Hamilton Wilson & Hendrickson Orthodontics for treatment of crowded teeth. During her free consultation, the doctors laid out all of the options available to her. From there, Heather and her parents decided Invisalign was the best choice for her.
“Heather’s preference for optimal aesthetics to achieve the smile she’s always wanted made her a great candidate for Invisalign,” said Dr. Gena Hendrickson.
Heather said she had a very positive experience during treatment.
“Everyone in the office was so friendly and helpful,” Heather said. “The appointments were always very quick.”
Heather used the Invisalign clear aligners diligently, and the results were remarkable, Dr. Hendrickson said.
“When looking at the photos at the end of her treatment, she achieved great alignment and arch expansion, and hopefully, her result has given her better self-confidence to smile,” Dr. Hendrickson said.
As it turned out, the treatment did just that.
“I feel like I can actually smile now, instead of always trying to hide my smile,” Heather said. She said she would recommend Invisalign treatment to any of her friends or family.
“I love it, and I thought the results were amazing!” she said. “I truly would recommend this group to everyone. I had a wonderful experience.”

Easier to Manage
Ian Winchester also wanted more confidence in his smile, but he was hesitant to get braces. He came to Hamilton Wilson & Hendrickson Orthodontics and discovered he had other treatment options available.
“Ian came to us wanting to address his crowded-out upper canine teeth as well as his overbite,” said Dr. Don Wilson.
After hearing all his options, Ian chose Invisalign for his treatment.
“He was a great candidate for Invisalign because we could create a treatment plan specifically for him that gives him an even better smile than he already had,” Dr. Wilson said. “We could also make improvements to his bite that would make him less prone to wearing his teeth down, which is something that he was already doing although he was not aware of it.”
Ian said he chose Invisalign because he felt it would be easier to manage. He said using the aligners allowed him to see his progress and taught him better hygiene habits because the aligners and his teeth had to be kept clean.
“The easiest part of Invisalign was the ability to look like I am wearing nothing at all on my teeth,” Ian said. “I think Invisalign has allowed me to have a more confident smile.”
Ian said he appreciated the kind treatment he received at Hamilton Wilson & Hendrickson Orthodontics.
“I really enjoyed how friendly everyone has been,” he said. “They have also been very helpful and have provided good care.”
Dr. Wilson said Ian’s treatment would have a lasting effect throughout his life.
“Ian’s smile is fantastic, and his bite is better, so he will be less likely to wear his teeth down,” he said. “The fact that he could have a treatment plan tailored to his personal goals and needs, and do it without braces, was important. He has made changes that will last a lifetime!”

Treatment With Invisalign
Invisalign clear aligners are custom created for each patient. That means the aligners treat your dental issues in the most efficient way possible. You can see results within weeks, and treatment can take as little as six months. Treatment time depends on the severity of the dental issues.
Treatment begins with a detailed, 3D map of the patient’s mouth using the iTero Element® 3D scanner. From there, the custom aligners are made with SmartTrack® material to provide as much comfort and as precise a fit as possible. Patients change out their aligners every 1-2 weeks. They receive a new set of aligners every 6-8 weeks during regular checkups with the orthodontist.
Like standard braces, the aligners use gentle pressure over time to correct dental issues, creating that beautiful smile you or your child will enjoy showing off.
Affordable Treatment Options
Heather is one of many patients who has discovered a new self-confidence thanks to Invisalign.
Invisalign has transformed smiles for more than two decades. More than 10 million patients have found new confidence after treatment.
Invisalign has a similar cost to other treatments, including braces. There are several options available to pay for Invisalign treatment. Many dental policies can cover Invisalign treatment. Also, most patients can pay using their Health Savings Accounts (HSA). If these options aren’t available, patients can set up a payment plan. Whatever method you choose, we want to make treatment affordable for you.
