Invisalign® clear braces are changing the way dentist approach orthodontic care. Offering a discreet and effective alternative to metal braces, Invisalign is ideal for many adult and teenage patients. Invisalign can correct crooked teeth, gaps, crowding, overbite, cross-bite, and under-bites. Ask your Charleston, SC family dentists, Dr. James Dickert and Dr. Agatha Lynn if Invisalign is right for your mild to moderate orthodontic needs.
Do I Qualify For Invisalign?
To determine if you are qualified for Invisalign, one of our dentists will conduct a thorough oral exam of your jaw, teeth, and gums. Every patient presents unique oral health needs and cosmetic goals. At West Ashley, we treat each of our patients with personalized and attentive dental care customized to achieve their optimal results.
Adults experiencing orthodontic relapse are often ideal candidates for Invisalign. If you have had metal braces or other orthodontic work in the past, you may experience late onset shifting of your teeth. Invisalign aligners are highly effective at realigning your teeth to restore your beautiful, straight smile.Teenagers with mild misalignment of their teeth often choose Invisalign for their ease of use and discreet nature. Now your teens can get straight teeth without the stigma of traditional braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Our West Ashley dental care team will custom design and fit a series of clear plastic aligners using our CAD/CAM software. Our doctors will discuss your treatment plan, maintenance of the aligners and your unique schedule for changing out aligners. Aligners are changed out every few weeks and should be worn about 22 hours a day to achieve optimal results. Each set of custom fabricated aligners are designed to gradually reposition your teeth into proper alignment. Our doctors will advise each patient on how long to wear each set of aligners depending on their orthodontic needs.
What Are The Benefits of Invisalign?
- Does Not Irritate: The invisible aligners are made of a smooth material that does not irritate the gums and soft tissues of the mouth.
- Removable: The aligners are removable for daily oral hygiene and enjoying foods and beverages without restriction.
- Quick Results: Treatment is generally completed in 12-15 months and maintained with a retainer.
