Invisalign® Clear Aligner Therapy in Charlotte & Harrisburg, NC
Not only does a straight smile positively impact your appearance, but it’s also beneficial for your overall oral health. Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss between, helping you ward off unwanted dental issues in the future. If you’ve been putting off straightening your smile to avoid a mouth full of metal, we have a solution for you. Invisalign uses clear aligners to gradually reposition your teeth without the use of metal wires and brackets. Schedule your Invisalign consultation today!contact us
The Invisalign Process
During your initial consultation, we’ll use smile preview software to digitize your smile and take any necessary impressions. These impressions will be sent to an off-site lab where your clear aligners will be created. Once we’ve received your aligners in our office, we’ll bring you in and provide you with a few sets that will be switched out after wearing them for about one to two weeks. You’ll continue doing this and visiting our office every six weeks for follow-up appointments. The process will continue as such until your teeth are in their desired position.
Benefits of Invisalign
- Average cost is comparable to conventional braces
- Can correct overbites, underbites, crossbites, crowding, and spacing issues
- Fewer office visits for adjustments than traditional metal braces
- No metal brackets or wires—virtually invisible straightening
- Removable aligners allow you to eat, brush, and floss regularly
- Smooth and comfortable plastic aligners won’t irritate your gums and cheeks
Once treatment is complete, we recommend wearing a custom retainer to prevent any shifting or movement. Immediately following treatment completion, we may recommend wearing your retainers for the majority of the day. However, as time progresses, you’ll be able to transition into wearing them only at night. As far as your dental hygiene routine is concerned, you should continue brushing, flossing, and rinsing as you normally would.
