Get the smile you’ve been dreaming of with more flexibility than braces with Invisalign.
Do you love your smile? If you have crooked teeth or a smile that leaves you anything but proud to show it off, we can help you here at Dental Oasis of Clayton to get the smile you want! We understand that there are those in Clayton, North Carolina who would like to forego traditional braces for a more flexible approach. For those individuals, we are able to offer Invisalign.
Invisalign works in a similar way as braces, except instead of wires shifting brackets on your teeth over time, a series of trays snaps in to very small bumps applied to your teeth, gradually shifting them. Many people prefer this method due to the fact that they can remove their “braces” or trays whenever they would like, enabling them to smile freely during important photos or eat sticky candy without fear. Additionally, Invisalign is a popular choice for adults whose teeth are not what they want, but who also don’t want to feel self-conscious about having traditional braces.
For Invisalign to work, consistency is key. This means that you wear your Invisalign trays as often as possible, at least 22 hours per day. Without this consistency, your teeth will not shift as they should. Invisalign can be uncomfortable with new tray application, but this discomfort usually fades within a day or two like it does when brackets on braces are tightened.
