No one wants to hide their smile, which is why we offer Invisalign clear aligners to our Pittsboro, NC dental patients. With the use of these clear and comfortable straightening trays, we can move your teeth into more ideal positions to give you the smile you deserve.
With the help of Invisalign, you can get straighter teeth and a smile you love showing off without the hassle of traditional metal braces. The Chatham Family & Implant Dentistry team can help you determine if clear aligner therapy is right for you and develop a treatment plan to get you to your dream smile.
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses virtually clear aligner trays to move your teeth into more ideal positions, giving you a smile that is functionally and aesthetically improved. This alternative to traditional metal braces allows you to improve your smile without letting on that you’re even wearing orthodontics.
Why Choose Invisalign®?
There are a number of benefits to choosing Invisalign over other orthodontic methods:
- It is an essentially invisible straightening option that is more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
- You can maintain your normal oral hygiene routine.
- There is no need to give up your favorite foods and beverages because the aligner trays are removable.
- There are no orthodontic emergencies because we don’t use brackets and rubber bands.
We love the flexibility that Invisalign gives our orthodontic patients. If you need to straighten your smile, ask about Invisalign at your next appointment.
The Invisalign® Process
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign is a simple process. To start, you’ll visit our office so we can determine your needs and use computer-assisted 3D technology to create a model of your ideal smile. The lab uses this model to create your series of trays.
Once your first set of trays is ready, you’ll come back to our office, so we can show you how to place them. Wear your trays all the time, except to eat, brush, and floss, to begin the process of moving your teeth. Visit our office approximately every two weeks to receive your next set of trays. As you work through your plan, our team will monitor your progress and make adjustments to the treatment plan as needed. Once you’ve completed your series of trays – on average, it takes 9 to 15 months and 18 to 30 sets of trays – you’ll have a brand new smile.
Am I A Candidate?
Many of our patients who are looking for orthodontic treatment are good candidates for Invisalign treatment. These aligners can help with misalignment, incorrect bites, and so much more. To find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, we’ll bring you in for a consultation to go over your goals for your smile. If aligner therapy is right for you, we’ll work with you to determine your treatment plan.
