Invisalign Raleigh, NC
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that straighten teeth similar to the way traditional braces do. They difference is that Invisalign does not have any metal or wires that are uncomfortable or gives users an unsightly appearance. Invisalign braces are popular because like the name says they are nearly invisible and can align teeth according to the plan your dentist sets forth for you. Invisalign has been clinically proven and is recommended for moderate cases of orthodontic problems. If you have a severe case of misalignment, Invisalign may not be for you. Dr. Ferzli will be able to tell if you are a candidate during your consultation.
How Invisalign Works
Dr. Ferzli will use the latest 3-D computer technology to create a model of your teeth. He will then use this model of your teeth to create a series of customized aligners. After you have worn your customized aligners for 2-3 weeks, a new set will be created. Every 2-3 weeks, a new set of customized aligners will be made for you until your teeth are perfectly aligned. Most people will experience perfect alignment in less than one year.
Invisalign works by straightening teeth incrementally until they meet the treatment plan Dr. Ferzli has worked out for you. You simply wear your aligners all day and night and take them out when you eat and for brushing. For best results Invisalign recommends users wear the aligners at least 20 hours or so a day. Invisalign is intended for adults and teens whose teeth have stopped growing and who can follow the treatment plan set forth to them by their dentist.
Invisalign costs as much as traditional braces although offers many more benefits. In addition to being nearly unnoticeable, Invisalign does not require the constant tightening that traditional metal and wire braces do. They also are easy to clean as are your teeth, simply take them off and brush your teeth as you normally would. As every patient is different, the treatment plan for Invisalign depends on your dental issues. Dr. Ferzli will be able to determine the necessary treatment to meet your goals and give you a quote so that you know how much your Invisalign will cost. We also provide financing options for those who need assistance.
