Friendly Dental Group is a Preferred Invisalign Provider in Charlotte NC

Most people consider the process of aligning crooked teeth fit for mainly teenagers and kids. However, adults can still benefit from the Invisalign procedure.

Wearing metal braces may seem unpleasant to adults who value their smile. For anybody that lives in Charlotte and needs an Invisalign consultation, visit Friendly Dental as we have over 20 locations in the great Charlotte area with several preferred Invisalign Orthodontists.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a type of dental treatment that helps align your teeth back to their correct position. The procedure involves wearing clear plastic aligners that straighten your teeth.

Patients who use Invisalign don’t have to wear metal braces. The aligners are swapped after every 2 weeks until your teeth are well aligned.

Why would I want Invisalign?

If you have crooked teeth, you may want to put on braces or Invisalign. Most people prefer Invisalign due to their invisible nature.

Unlike metal braces which are visible, Invisalign cannot be easily detected. With smooth edges, Invisalign gives you uttermost comfort.

Additionally, Invisalign is removable and you can comfortably remove your invisible aligners while having a meal.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Helps you straighten crooked teeth without affecting your smile. Your friends will hardly know that you are wearing anything.
  • Their soft edges make them comfortable to wear. You will hardly feel irritation in your mouth; a common attribute with metal braces.
  • During meals, when brushing or flossing, you can remove them. This is NOT the case with metal braces.
  • Unlike metallic braces that are difficult to clean, Invisalign braces are easy to clean and maintain. After removing, you can brush and soak them comfortably.
  • The Invisalign process is a shorter treatment period. Ideally, you may need approximately 12 months to align your teeth.

Who needs Invisalign and why?

There are a few signs that may cause your Orthodontist to request you to wear Invisalign. Invisalign is appropriate for anyone who has overcrowded teeth, crooked teeth, an under-bite, an overbite, a cross-bite and an open-bite.

All these conditions should be treated on time to prevent the problem from worsening.

Invisalign vs. Braces?

Braces comprise of metal sections being stuck to your teeth, and entwined by wires and minor elastic bands.

Invisalign is imperceptible. Nobody may even notice that you’re wearing them, making Invisalign a consistent fit with your way of life.

Also, aligner plates made of free clear plastic are worn over your teeth to position them accurately.

What does it mean to be a preferred Invisalign provider?

Invisalign dentists have accomplished a HUGE level of involvement in treating variety of patients with this issue.

However, a few dentists have separated themselves with significantly higher experience and have produced quality results above average.
