Experience The Latest In Orthodontics With Invisalign®
Invisalign at First-in-Smiles Dentistry in Matthews is an orthodontic system that uses a series of clear, custom-fitted aligners to move teeth into position gradually. With Invisalign, we can easily monitor your progress until the desired results are achieved.
What should I expect with Invisalign treatment?
Our dentist will begin with an initial evaluation to determine your candidacy for Invisalign. A precise image of your teeth is taken using X-rays and impressions. Once this step is complete, a series of customized aligners is fabricated. You must wear each aligner for about two weeks before switching to the next one in the series. You should wear the clear aligners for twenty to 22 hours every day.
What problems can Invisalign correct?
Invisalign can address various orthodontic issues, including overcrowding, spacing between teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite. While Invisalign can help treat these minor misalignments, it is not ideal for every case. Severe cases of malocclusion may still require more traditional treatment.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are almost invisible when in place. Many patients report maintaining their daily routine with little disruption, as the aligners can easily be taken out for eating and cleaning. Invisalign is also much more comfortable than traditional metal braces, as the aligners are smooth and cause less irritation than metal braces.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The amount of time required for the entire treatment varies depending on the severity of your malocclusion. In most cases, however, it takes about six months to two years. During this period, you must visit First-in-Smiles Dentistry regularly so we can track your progress and provide any necessary adjustments.
Who is a suitable candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is suitable for adults and teens with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. These days, about 20% of orthodontic patients are between 20 and 60 years of age, which is why Invisalign has become so popular with adults. Teens also may prefer Invisalign due to its discreet nature.
