Invisalign® An Overview
There are various types of orthodontic treatments available today to treat orthodontic concerns. Invisalign clear aligners offer more patient satisfaction than any other option. Invisalign is the discreet way to treat mild to moderate orthodontic concerns without the use of metal braces. Many people choose to live with their crooked teeth because of the hassles associated with braces. With invisible braces, adults can avoid the stigma while teens can avoid the embarrassment of having metal braces. Our Cary NC dentists, Dr. Leo Haydt and Dr. Alex Wexler, are certified North Carolina Invisalign providers serving patients at Tryon Family Dentistry. They are extensively trained and possess the knowledge to treat patients and determine who is a candidate for this clear aligner system.
Invisalign is a series of custom made aligners that are clear, plastic, and ultra-thin. They made from 3-D images taken at our office and fabricated to the specifications of each patient. They are made of highly durable material that is transparent and designed to fit snugly against the teeth. You will change the aligners about once a week to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment.
Benefits of Choosing Invisalign
Straightening your teeth will support your over-all oral health and will give you a beautiful smile. But choosing Invisalign over metal braces offers so many more benefits. The fact that they are removable and clear is the major reason people prefer them. You will simply remove the aligners to continue brushing and flossing daily as you normally would. This also allows you to eat normally, without restrictions and not have to deal with getting food trapped between the braces and your teeth. Not many people will notice you are wearing them since they are clear and difficult to even notice. Additional benefits include:
- Shorter treatment times
- No dietary restrictions
- More comfortable and removable
- Discreet and hardly noticeable
- Zero risk of tooth enamel staining from permanently attached brackets
