Find out how a simple nearly invisible orthodontic system could give you a straight smile.
As an adult, you may think the ship has sailed on having a straight, beautiful smile but our South Charlotte, NC, dentists Dr. Richard Bateman, Dr. Joshua Neubauer and Dr. Emerald Powell are here to tell you that this is far from the truth. Thanks to Invisalign, it’s now easier than ever for teens and adults to get the smiles they want without having to wear metal braces in order to do it.
What is Invisalign?
By now, most people have heard of Invisalign; however, how much do you actually know about this treatment? Invisalign consists of a set of clear aligners (that look similar to whitening trays) that are custom-made to fit tightly over your teeth to provide ample force and pressure to move teeth into the ideal alignment.
How do Invisalign aligners work?
Each aligner is custom-made by an Invisalign lab based on specific movements that our South Charlotte, NC, general dentists map out based on images taken of your mouth. Thanks to this amazing software, we can map out exactly how each aligner will shift teeth, which teeth will need to shift and how far they will move with each new aligner. Aligners are worn for about two weeks at a time before being replaced with the next set. Over time, you’ll begin to see the changes to your smile.
What is life like with Invisalign?
Most people worry that the minute they get braces that everything will change. Luckily, Invisalign fits right into your lifestyle, making it simple to go about your normal routine but also working to get the smile you want.
Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out prior to eating or brushing/flossing your teeth. Since you can remove your aligners you don’t have any food restrictions and you can continue to brush and floss normally without having to worry about cleaning around metal wires and brackets to remove food and plaque buildup.
