Invisalign is a transparent orthodontic system that is considered more comfortable than traditional braces. Your dentist in High Point, NC offers Invisalign to patients looking for straight teeth comfortably, without the metal and wires.

How Invisalign in High Point, NC Works

Our dentist will evaluate you for Invisalign. In other words, make sure the system will correct your orthodontic issues, which may include:

  • Twisted, overlapping, and generally crooked teeth
  • Bite misalignment, including an overbite
  • Gaps and peculiar spacing between teeth

Our dental team wants you to have the smile of your dreams, which is why our dentist performs a thorough evaluation beforehand.

If you and your Invisalign dentist decide on the treatment, we take impressions of your teeth and send these off to the Invisalign lab. The lab then creates clear aligners for your treatment.

You’ll notice small dots on your Invisalign trays when you pick them up. These dots help anchor and secure your aligners for best results, but they will not be noticeable to others.

What to Expect

You can expect an adjustment period when your first start wearing your aligners, but most patients adapt quickly.

And you’ll be able to remove Invisalign to enjoy meals and clean your teeth, which is not true with traditional braces.

As you grow accustomed to your aligners, you may not even think about them being in your mouth. They are virtually invisible and made of smooth plastic for maximum comfort.

You’ll wear your aligners for 22 hours each day and may be in treatment for several months or up to two years.

After Invisalign treatment, we provide a clear retainer to keep your teeth in their new straight positions. This retainer is like a reminder for your teeth, and it protects your final result from relapse.
