Invisalign: How does it work?

Are you curious about Invisalign®? At Skelton Orthodontics, we proudly offer these invisible aligners that don’t use brackets or wires. If you’re looking for a more subtle treatment option, Invisalign may be right for you.

How does it work?

At your appointment, we’ll make a set of aligners customized to your teeth using 3D computer imaging technology. You will wear your aligners for approximately two weeks before switching them out for the next set.

During your day, feel free to remove the aligners when you eat and as you brush and floss your teeth.  As you replace each set, your teeth will slightly move each day until they reach the final position we prescribe.

Throughout your treatment, you’ll visit our office roughly every six weeks to ensure that treatment is progressing. Most people wear their aligners for six to 18 months, but treatment time varies depending on the individual.

The 10% discount for orthodontic treatment is given only to those with proof of employment with DeKalb County, Jackson County, Cherokee County, or an area private school. Also, teachers must show identification and proof of dependents. This discount is only available at the Skelton Orthodontics office in Fort Payne, AL.

Dental Health Month Visits

The Skelton Orthodontics team was able to visit local schools during February and March to educate students on the importance of healthy teeth. We spoke with kids of all ages at several schools and were so excited to speak to them about their smiles!


Parents, did you know that children should see a dentist by their first birthday and then every six months? The American Association of Orthodontists also recommends that kids see an orthodontic specialist like Dr. Skelton at age 7 to have their jaw growth checked.


Oral health is a reflection of a child's overall health and the Skelton Orthodontics team knows how good it feels to see your kids smile with confidence. Call us today to set up a free orthodontic evaluation!
