Invisalign Enables Patients to Straighten Their Teeth with Comfort and Discreetness

Do you wish your teeth were straighter and less crowded? Do you have teeth that are overlapped and tipped too far in or far out?  If you answered yes to either or both of these questions and don’t like the idea of metal braces, Invisalign could be ideal for you. Invisalign is a relatively new technology that uses clear, almost unnoticeable trays to straighten your smile — no wires, no bands, and definitely no metal brackets.

Patients who want a straighter, beautiful smile no longer have an excuse. Carolinas BioHealth Dentistry is an Invisalign-certified dental office serving residents of the Piedmont Triad and surrounding areas as well as anyone who is seeking outstanding holistic dental care.  Book an appointment with Dr. Tyler Wynne to get that smile you always wanted and deserve.

What to expect from the Invisalign treatment

Want to straighten your teeth with Invisalign? The process is simple. The initial stage is booking an appointment with an Invisalign dentist like Dr. Wynne. Dr. Wynne examines your dental health to ensure you are free of cavities and gum disease. We also check your teeth and bite to determine your eligibility for invisible braces.

The next step is either taking impressions or digitally scanning your mouth with our intraoral scanner. This technology captures over 6,000 images per second to create a detailed 3D image of your mouth. This allows us to develop a customized treatment for you. We can preview your treatment to see how every tooth will move to the correct alignment before treatment begins. We can even predict how long the treatment will take!

Once you are happy with your previewed smile, the technicians will fabricate a series of clear teeth aligners. You will wear each set for about two weeks before moving into the next in the series. This pattern continues until you achieve your desired smile. The aligners are clear and BPA-free, lightweight, and thin. 

Benefits of Invisalign treatment

Backed by over 12 million smiles, Invisalign is quickly gaining traction in orthodontics. This system has become popular, especially among teens and adults, because it offers numerous benefits like:

  • It’s discreet
  • Aligners are BPA free and thin
  • Invisalign has no dietary restrictions
  • It’s faster than conventional braces if you wear your clear aligners for about 20-22 hours daily
  • It’s comfortable — no sharp edges to irritate your gums
  • It doesn’t alter the way you clean your teeth

Want a straight, beautiful smile? The smile you have always wanted starts by calling (336) 793-0577 to book a free consultation with Carolinas BioHealth Dentistry for Invisalign treatment. This method is fast, comfortable, and discreet.

How does Invisalign treatment straighten my teeth?

A series of clear aligners place precise forces on your teeth to move them. You wear each aligner for two weeks, then switch to a new aligner until your teeth are straightened. Treatment time varies; depending on the complexity of your case, treatment time may be as short as six months.

How long do I need to wear the aligners each day?

You will need to wear the aligners all the time and remove them only for eating, drinking, and brushing and flossing your teeth. The aligners do not have to be removed when drinking water.

What will the aligners feel and look like on my teeth?

The aligners are made from precision technology. A clear plastic material that fits snugly against your teeth is shaped comfortably around your gum line. No metal wires or brackets exist, so the aligners are very comfortable and almost invisible.

Are there any foods I have to avoid during treatment?

No, since the aligners are removable, and there are no brackets or wires, there are no foods you must avoid during Invisalign treatment.

How do I take care of my aligners during treatment?

After eating and drinking, always brush and floss your teeth before placing the aligners back on them. You may rinse the aligners in water or clean them with Invisalign cleaning crystals. However, the aligners are very hygienic since you only wear each aligner for two weeks.

When Invisalign treatment is completed, how do I keep my teeth straight?

Custom, long-lasting clear retainers are made for you to wear similar to the aligners for some time after treatment is completed to eventual nighttime use only.
