What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a new form of orthodontic treatment with many advantages. For starters, there's absolutely no metal in the mouth. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligner trays to move teeth into their correct position. Because there's no metal, you're less likely to experience oral injuries, dental emergencies, and other inconveniences. There are also no diet restrictions with Invisalign since you don't have to worry about cracking a piece of candy on brackets or wires. Other benefits of this unique orthodontic treatment include no interruptions with your oral care routine. Plus, they're virtually invisible, letting you straighten discreetly and confidently.
What to Expect from Invisalign
Your new smile starts with a scan that is performed by Dr. Challenger in our Clayton, NC office. Using specialized computer software, he'll develop your personalized treatment plan from start to finish with a camera and without messy molds or discomfort. Before the physical aligners get crafted, Dr. Challenger can show you a preview of the finished product on the computer screen. Once the aligners are ready, he'll instruct you to wear them for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. The length of treatment depends on the patient but can be as minimal as six months. Retainers are optional but recommended to prevent teeth from shifting out of place.
Now that you've learned a bit more about this alternative orthodontic treatment, are you interested in Invisalign? If so, Dr. H. Russell Challenger can discuss options for teenagers as well as adults. He can also address any questions or concerns during the initial consultation.
