What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear braces are an orthodontic system that helps to gently move your teeth into the proper position. They are barely noticeable and allow you to speak without impediment, eat naturally, and get the smile that makes you feel confident.

Your first step in getting Invisalign Clear Aligners is arranging a consultation with Friendly Dentistry in Greensboro NC. Our dentist will help you determine if Invisalign Aligners can help you meet your smile goals.

What Can Invisalign Clear Aligners Be Used to Treat?

This clear bracing system can be used to treat an overbite, an underbite, crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, misaligned teeth, and a crossbite. In just about every case that traditional metal braces can be used you can opt for Invisalign Clear Braces.

Many adults that were not able to get the braces that they needed as children to repair bite problems, are turning to Friendly Dentistry in Greensboro to get Invisalign braces. Clear braces are the perfect option for adults and teenagers that feel self-conscious about displaying a mouth full of metal.

I love Friendly Dentistry! The dentists, hygienists and entire staff are wonderful to work with… I completed Invisalign with Dr. Ribando several years ago and was very happy both during treatment and with the outcome – Great practice!


Answering Your Questions About Invisalign Clear Braces:

Which Patients Are Good Candidates for Invisalign?

Invisalign is an excellent option but it is not the best solution for everyone. It is ideal for teens and adults, but not recommended for children that still have primary teeth and permanent teeth that have some growing left to do.

At Friendly Dentistry, we will exam your teeth, and let you know if this is the best option for your alignment needs. In most cases, Invisalign is a great solution.

How Do Invisalign Braces Work?

During your first Invisalign braces appointment, 3D images are taken of your teeth. These images are used to create the trays (aligners) that you will slip over your teeth. These clear aligners are custom made to fit your mouth out of BPA free plastic.

From your first appointment until the trays are ready, it is typically about a 4-week turnaround. Our dentist and hygienist will instruct you on how to insert the trays.

Each tray is worn for about 2 weeks to move, rotate and correct your teeth. The process can take anywhere from as little as 6 months to as much as a year and a half, depending on your specific dental needs.  The average time to reach the corrected state is about 1 year.

Most patients find the clear aligner completely painless. It takes only a few days to get used to wearing them. They can be removed to eat, and then slipped right back on.  You will wear the aligners all day, every day, and while you sleep.

You will take the aligners out to brush and floss. The aligners can be brushed with a toothbrush when you brush your teeth to keep them clean.  It is important to wear the aligners as directed to get the best results.

Every two weeks you will switch to a new aligner. Your teeth will move in small increments of 1/10th of a mm with every tray on average. This may sound like a small amount, but it is actually tremendous strides.

Why Are Clear Braces Best?

Beyond the esthetic of clear braces that so many patients are fond of, there are healthy teeth benefits as well. Metal braces can make it very difficult to keep your teeth clean, but with the clear braces you can just take the aligners out to get your teeth clean. They simplify good oral hygiene.

Other benefits of these clear braces include:

  • Patients at Friendly Dentistry report no or little discomfort from Invisalign Braces. Unfortunately, traditional braces wearers often report discomfort.
  • There are fewer dental appointments necessary. Unlike traditional metal braces that require constant dental office visits for adjustments, Invisalign Braces do not.

Patients prefer Invisalign Braces for a wide range of reasons. They are more comfortable to wear than traditional braces, they are very discreet, and they offer a more precise movement of teeth.

Teenagers and adults with busy lives love the fact that they will have to schedule in dental appointments a lot less than they would with traditional metal braces. An appointment will be scheduled for about every 6 weeks at Friendly Dentistry to check on your progress and to check out your aligners.

What Happens After the Treatment?

You get to enjoy a great smile that you can feel proud of! To ensure that your teeth do not shift out of alignment again, you will be fitted with a retainer. Retainers are used after traditional braces are removed to keep teeth from shifting back into their old positions.

How Much Do Invisalign Braces Cost?

At your first appointment Invisalign appointment, the dentist will have a better idea of what the cost will be for your specific dental needs. Every person has unique dental needs. Some factors that will affect costs are the number of trays that will be needed to straighten your teeth. You will know all the costs upfront after your first appointment.
