What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment option that corrects mild to moderate dental misalignment through a series of clear trays. The aligners are customized for your unique dental structure, allowing them to gradually shift your teeth into the desired alignment through pinpointed pressure. Although every treatment is unique, treatment is typically complete in 12-18 months. You'll move on to a new set of trays every two weeks, gradually moving your teeth until we achieve the ideal position.
What Dental Issues Does Invisalign Fix?
Our Holly Springs Invisalign treatments fix similar issues as metal braces but more comfortably. They include:
- Crooked teeth: The most common form of dental issue, this occurs when some teeth may sit too far forward, backward, or sit at an angle, creating an uneven bite that could wear teeth down gradually over years of use.
- Crowding: This dental malocclusion occurs when teeth overlap due to inadequate space. In addition to being a cosmetic problem, crowding increases the risk of oral health problems by making it difficult to brush and floss between the crowded teeth.
- Gaps between teeth: This condition harms oral health by allowing food to become lodged between your gums and teeth. Morrisville Invisalign services prevent tooth decay by closing these gaps.
- Overbite: This dental malocclusion happens when your upper teeth sit notably ahead of lower ones. Overbite complicates chewing and may also cause jaw pain, as well as uneven wear.
- Underbite: An underbite causes your lower teeth to project further forward than the upper ones. Invisalign can help with mild underbites when the jaw does not need to be realigned.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The process starts with an appointment at an Invisalign-certified dentist. Dr. Khara's Diamond Plus Provider status means he performs hundreds of Invisalign treatments per year. This figure makes him one of America's foremost experts in this treatment. Thanks to this expertise, you can trust that Dr. Khara can expertly plan your treatment to achieve a straighter, healthier smile for you.
A thorough assessment of your dental structure allows us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign in Morrisville. If you're a successful candidate, we'll create a series of 3D impressions of your dental structure. We can even show you how your smile will look after treatment so that you know what to expect. We'll then send the images to Invisalign laboratories, where they'll craft the aligner trays.
The number of trays you need depends on the nature and extent of your dental misalignment. At your next appointment, Dr. Khara will fit the first trays and guide you on how to use them at home. Invisalign creates customized aligners that exert incremental force based on your treatment plan. We'll welcome you back to our office for periodic visits so that Dr. Khara can verify that your treatment is progressing smoothly and make any adjustments if needed.
The Benefits of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces
Our Morrisville Invisalign services provide more aesthetically pleasing results for teens and adults. Unlike traditional braces, the clear trays mean that most people won't notice your ongoing treatment. The aligners also allow you to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine because they're easily removable. You also won't have to change your diet and can continue eating whatever and whenever you want.
We know that you likely have questions about Invisalign, especially if you've never had orthodontic treatment. We're happy to provide any information you need so you can decide on your treatment options with confidence. Some common questions we receive include:
For the best results, you'll need to wear your Invisalign trays for at least 22 hours daily. You can remove the aligners while eating or cleaning your teeth. Your oral hygiene routine includes cleaning the trays by brushing and rinsing them. This prevents bacteria and debris from becoming trapped in the trays and decaying and staining your teeth.
Although initially made for adults, we can offer a teen version to help straighten adolescent smiles as well. Since the removable aligners require a lot of personal discipline to be effective, Invisalign is generally not the most effective choice for younger children.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t restrict your diet or significantly impact your daily activities. When trying on a new aligner set, you might feel some discomfort, but after a few days as your teeth shift, you’ll get used to its gentle, gradual force.
