Charlotte Invisalign Experts
For teens and adults who desire straighter teeth without the restrictions of traditional braces, Invisalign could be the perfect solution. Koerich Orthodontics is your trusted expert in Charlotte for creating beautiful smiles for patients of all ages.
What does Charlotte Invisalign treatment involve?
Invisalign treatment involves using a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth and improve your overall oral health. The clear aligners are custom-designed for your smile using x-rays and digital impressions taken during your initial consultation. The aligners are made from a comfortable and smooth material that fits securely over your teeth, and they are replaced with a new set every 1-2 weeks to keep up with the movement of your teeth.
Benefits of Invisalign
- Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible
- Aligners are removable, making it easy to maintain good oral hygiene
- No food restrictions – aligners can be removed while eating
- No wires or brackets to poke and irritate your mouth
- Fewer adjustment appointments required – checkups every 6-8 weeks
There are a couple of best practices to consider in taking care of your Invisalign. Your aligners should be removed before eating to avoid staining and they should always be cleaned and rinsed at least once or twice a day.
How does the Charlotte Invisalign system work?
The Invisalign system is simple yet effective. You wear each aligner for approximately two weeks and remove them only to eat, brush, or floss. Your teeth gradually move into their desired position as you replace each aligner with the next in the series. We will monitor your progress during regular visits to our office to ensure the treatment is going as planned.
It's crucial to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day to achieve the best results. Inconsistent use or skipping appointments can hinder your progress, and it may take longer to achieve your desired smile. Treatment duration varies depending on individual cases, but the average range is 6 to 18 months.
