Do you want beautiful straight teeth but cannot imagine life with braces? Have you already had braces and are looking for an alternative solution? If you’re in Raleigh or Cary, NC, consider Invisalign from Walton Maready! We can determine if Invisalign is a good option for you during a complimentary consultation.
Invisalign is a series of invisible “aligners” custom fabricated using 3D computer-aided design and manufacturing technology. With Invisalign, you can view the 3D images of your tooth movement before starting treatment to see how your teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
You remove the clear aligners when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This allows freedom in food options and ease with hygiene. The aligners are smooth and more comfortable than traditional braces. Typically, appointments are shorter because there are no wires to adjust.
Each set of upper and lower aligners has a small amount of built-in tooth movement. As you move through the series of aligners, your teeth will straighten, little by little, until the alignment is complete. You wear each aligner for 1-2 weeks depending on the type of tooth movement.
The number of aligners and the treatment length varies for each patient depending on the severity of the problem and the final result. Total treatment time is often similar to that with traditional braces.
When your treatment is complete, you can maintain the alignment of your teeth with a clear retainer custom made for you.
