Gladwell Orthodontics understands how frustrating it can be when your smile doesn’t look the way you’d like it to. Therefore, we are pleased to offer Invisalign to our patients from Franklinton, NC. With Invisalign, you can correct your teeth without the appearance or inconvenience of traditional metal braces. Read on to learn more about this revolutionary way to straighten teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of custom aligners that are specifically designed to guide your teeth into the proper positions just like traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about any annoying brackets or frequent visits to the orthodontist to get your wires tightened. You can expect strong, thin aligners that are invisible and can get the job of straightening your teeth done in as little as 12 months.

Why Invisalign Instead of Traditional Metal Braces?

Traditional metal braces have earned a negative reputation because the brackets involved are bulky, uncomfortable, and can easily cause pain and irritation. They also make brushing and flossing, playing a musical instrument or a sport, and even eating hard or sticky foods a real hassle.

If you opt for Invisalign, you won’t have to worry about any of these issues. Invisalign aligners are invisible so it won’t be obvious that you are receiving orthodontic treatment. In addition, they are removable so you can brush, floss, eat, and participate in any activity as you normally would.

What Does the Invisalign Procedure Entail?

If Dr. Jason Gladwell decides that Invisalign is right for you, he will design a custom treatment plan where he will gather information on the state of your teeth through pictures, x-rays, and impressions.

This information will be used so that your Invisalign aligners can be designed.
When you receive your initial Invisalign aligners, you’ll have to wear them for 22 hours each day. They can be removed for cleaning, eating, and playing sports or an instrument and will need to be replaced every 2 weeks.
