Why should I choose Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great option for teens, adults, and anyone looking for a discreet orthodontic solution in Cary, NC. Using clear plastic trays to gently exert pressure on your teeth, these aligners shift them into the desired position. They are thin, nearly invisible, comfortable, and removable. With traditional braces, you have to change your diet, your at-home oral hygiene routine, and deal with hard metal brackets and sharp wires that can poke your gums and cheeks. This is not the case with Invisalign! You can enjoy your normal routine while watching your teeth become straighter right before your eyes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign aligners are only available from licensed dentists and orthodontists. Invisalign treatment involves a comprehensive evaluation of your dental condition, including X-rays, impressions, and a personalized treatment plan. Only a qualified dental professional can accurately assess your teeth and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.

Throughout the treatment process, regular check-ups with your dentist are necessary to ensure the progress of your treatment and make any necessary adjustments. Their expertise and guidance are crucial in achieving the best possible results with Invisalign.

Yes, you can drink with Invisalign aligners in place, but it's important to note that certain beverages can stain or discolor the aligners. To avoid this, it's recommended to only drink water while wearing your aligners.

If you consume colored or sugary beverages such as coffee, tea, soda, or sports drinks, it's best to remove your aligners beforehand. This will help prevent staining and maintain the clarity of your aligners.

It's normal for teeth to undergo some natural shifting throughout our lives, even after orthodontic treatment. However, the extent of this shifting can vary from person to person. To minimize the risk of your teeth shifting after Invisalign, it's crucial to follow your dentist's instructions regarding retainer use and maintenance.

Wearing a retainer as directed will help maintain the alignment achieved with Invisalign. Additionally, regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential to monitor your oral health and address any concerns promptly.

After completing your Invisalign treatment, it's crucial to wear a retainer to maintain the results achieved. While the frequency of wearing a retainer may vary depending on your individual case, it's generally recommended to wear it full-time for the first few months and then gradually transition to wearing it only at night.

Wearing a retainer helps to prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original positions, which can happen naturally over time. Your dentist will provide specific instructions on how long you should wear your retainer to ensure the longevity of your Invisalign results.

One of the many advantages of Invisalign is that it allows you to enjoy most of your favorite foods without restrictions. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can take them out while eating. This eliminates the need to avoid certain foods that can get stuck or damage braces.

However, it's important to note that you should remove your Invisalign aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water. This is to prevent staining or damaging the aligners. Additionally, it's recommended to brush your teeth before reinserting the aligners to maintain good oral hygiene.

Invisalign is an incredibly versatile orthodontic treatment that can address a wide range of dental issues. However, there are certain cases where Invisalign may not be the most suitable option. Invisalign is primarily designed to correct mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as crowded teeth, gaps, and minor bite issues. If you have severe malocclusions or complex bite problems, traditional braces or other orthodontic treatments may be more appropriate.

Invisalign aligners are nearly impossible to see when wearing them. This is because they are made out of clear plastic and are perfectly fit to your smile. Your trays will be custom-made to fit your gum line for a more seamless look. Plus there are no metal brackets or wires, so you can feel confident in your smile throughout treatment. However, if you eat or drink with your aligners in, they could become stained, making them more visible.

These clear aligners are designed onto a mold of your teeth. A lab technician will apply layers of a photo-sensitive liquid resin to this custom mold. Next, the technician will expose this resin to a laser, curing it into a hard, yet flexible, thermoplastic. This plastic is called SmartTrack®, and it was created exclusively for Invisalign treatment. It’s FDA-approved and contains no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten.

The cost of treatment with Invisalign is usually comparable to the cost of traditional braces. Every case is different, though, so it’s important to discuss your budget with your doctor. During your consultation, your doctor will consider multiple factors including your needs, your lifestyle, and your budget before helping you decide which treatment to proceed with.

While Invisalign trays look very similar to night guards and mouthguards, we do not recommend that you use Invisalign as a nightguard. The clear plastic trays are designed to gently shift your teeth, not protect them. If you grind your teeth at night, we may recommend that you get a night guard to protect your teeth and go with traditional braces instead of Invisalign. If you wear your aligners at night and notice that they are becoming cracked or worn down, this may be a sign that you are grinding your teeth at night. This will affect your treatment so be sure to let your doctor know right away if you think you might be grinding your teeth.

If you notice that your aligners become damaged, cracked, worn, or if you lose your aligners, contact your doctor right away. If you delay this will only prolong your treatment and could reverse the progress you have made. In the event that you lose your aligners or if they become damaged, let us know and we will help you get back on track.

Caring for your Invisalign trays is quite simple. All you need to do is brush them with a toothbrush and toothpaste when you brush your teeth. If you are in a situation that prevents you from cleaning them, you can rinse them with lukewarm water. It is important to avoid rinsing them with hot water as this could warp the trays.

For most patients, your treatment plan will indicate that you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, however, this may vary based on your unique needs. When in doubt, we recommend wearing your aligners at all times except for when you take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. This will ensure you are getting the most out of your cosmetic treatment and that your teeth are shifting as quickly as possible.

While Invisalign is usually more comfortable than traditional braces, there is still some discomfort associated with all orthodontic treatments. Since we will be shifting your teeth, you may notice tenderness and soreness as you get used to each new set of trays. Invisalign works by applying gentle pressure to your teeth which in turn creates inflammation that signals your tooth roots to shift. If you would like to lessen your discomfort during the initial adjustment period, we recommend that you take Tylenol. It is important to avoid ibuprofen because it is an anti-inflammatory and actually hinders the tooth movement process.

If you have minor or moderate orthodontic issues, you are likely a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign. So long as your mouth is free of any oral health issues like gum disease or tooth decay, you will probably be eligible to proceed with treatment. However, Invisalign is not for everyone. Severe orthodontic issues may not be able to be addressed with Invisalign. In these cases, we usually recommend treatment with traditional metal or ceramic braces as they can provide more powerful results.
