Everyone wants to achieve a perfect smile. But sometimes, our crooked teeth get in the way.
While traditional metal braces can help solve the problem, many people don’t want to deal with the hassle that comes along with wearing them. Metal braces are uncomfortable, they require a lot of office visits, and often food gets stuck in them. There are many issues commonly surrounding traditional braces.
But braces are a thing of the past. Though conventional braces are still available, there’s a better option to achieve that perfect smile.
Introducing Invisalign.Straighten your teeth with the use of clear aligners instead of braces.
Invisalign is removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. You can still consume your favorite foods. You can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth since there are no wires, metal, or brackets.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Your dentist in Indian Trail will get a mold of your teeth to produce your customized clear aligners. Once done, you have to wear your aligners for about two weeks. You have to go back to your dentist to replace your old aligners and wear a new one because your teeth will have already shifted.
You have to replace your aligners approximately 18 to 30 times during the duration of the treatment, which will take an average of 6 to 15 months to complete. Of course, the length of the treatment and the number of aligners you have to wear vary from case to case. There are also short-term treatments available for minor cases that can be solved in as little as 3 to 4 months.
What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?
Much like braces, Invisalign will solve your teeth alignment problem and malocclusion (bad bites) but it comes with a lot more convenience and the following advantages:
Virtually invisible and removable
Less time at the dentist office
Better for the overall health of your mouth
ClearCorrect in Indian Trail
In addition to the Invisalign system, our dental team in Indian Trail proudly offers ClearCorrect orthodontic treatment. ClearCorrect also uses clear aligner trays to discreetly straighten teeth and correct malocclusions without the need for brackets and wires.
How Does ClearCorrect Work?
To get started, your dentist creates a prescription for your ClearCorrect treatment. Your custom aligner trays and treatment plan are created using your dental records, digital scan, and photos of your mouth.
The ClearCorrect aligner system is not appropriate for all patients. A comprehensive evaluation with your dentist is required to determine if you are a candidate.
ClearCorrect works best in patients with mild straightening needs. A series of aligner trays is used. Each set is worn for 22 hours each day for a couple of weeks before being discarded and replaced. Exact treatment times vary from patient to patient.
What Are the Advantages of ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect orthodontic treatment offers patients the following benefits:
Invisible aligners – Straightening your teeth does not have to be a public affair.
Comfortable straightening – The treatment relies on gentle pressure rather than tight wires to shift teeth into position.
Removable trays – Remove aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. There is no need to change your dietary habits!
Easy care – There are no wires to get in your way when brushing and flossing.
