At Wrightsville Dental, we are proud to offer patients in need of orthodontic treatment Invisalign. These state-of-the-art aligners have helped numerous people enjoy a better smile. If you do not know if the aligners are right for here, then here are some of the basics about the procedure.
It is paramount you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day. Fortunately, you do have two hours you can take them out, which most people do during meals. This allows you to eat what you want.
Most patients need to visit our office once every six to eight weeks to ensure the aligners are working as they should. This makes it far easier to fit the treatment into your busy schedule. These checkups go quickly, and our dentist in Wilmington, NC just needs to make sure everything progresses smoothly.
The aligners are made out of smooth plastic instead of metal. That means you do not have to worry about your orthodontics brushing against the inside of your cheeks.
Additionally, the plastic used for Invisalign is of the highest quality. It is FDA-approved, and it does not contain any gluten, latex, BPS or BPA. The aligners are made out of SmartTrack®, which is a medical-grade thermoplastic.
The plastic aligners do not affect your speech at all. They are practically invisible, and most people cannot even tell they are there. This is perfect for teenagers and adults alike who do not want metal-filled smiles for a year.
Many patients love their aligners, but not everyone is a good candidate. To make sure this is a good treatment for you, you need to get in touch with Dr. James A. Gainer’s office. After scheduling a consultation, we may be able to provide you with a set of aligners in no time.
