The doctors and staff at Coastal Carolina Orthodontics want to help all our patients find the orthodontic treatment that works best for them. For some, that means Invisalign.
Unlike traditional forms of orthodontic treatment like braces, Invisalign straightens teeth without the necessity of wires or brackets. Using clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners, Invisalign provides a comfortable, virtually undetectable way to work towards a straighter, more confident smile.
As Invisalign aligners are made from a clear, flexible plastic, they are difficult to notice and thus, hardly anyone will know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. In addition, the removable nature of Invisalign aligners allows you to occasionally take them out for special functions, brush and floss with ease, and eat whatever you like without the normal restrictions posed by braces.
How it Works
If you’re interested in Invisalign, the first step is to visit our Jacksonville, Morehead City, or Havleock, NC office to determine if this is the right option for your smile. If it is, your orthodontist will use Invisalign’s 3-D computer graphics technology to create custom aligners.
The treatment instructions your orthodontist prescribes will then translate into a sequence of finely calibrated Invisalign aligners designed to move your teeth in small steps towards the desired position. Each of these Invisalign aligners (as few as 12 or as many as 48) is precisely manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of your orthodontic treatment plan.
Worn for about two weeks a piece, Invisalign aligners gradually move your teeth until the final alignment is achieved. From there you’ll be smiling like never before!
Is it Right for Me?
To ensure the best possible results, only orthodontists (like those found at Coastal Carolina Orthodontics’ Jacksonville, Morehead City, and Havelock, NC locations) who have been trained and certified by Align Technology can treat a patient using Invisalign.
