Invisalign “invisible” braces continue to grow in popularity, and more dental professionals are offering them as part of their practices. But for dentists who don’t have much experience with the Invisalign system, there’s a tendency to shift patients to traditional metal braces if they don’t think Invisalign can work.
While there are some patients who will see better results from traditional braces (see our post on Erin Queen), there are many more cases where Invisalign can provide excellent results–if your dentist has the experience to properly administer Invisalign treatment.
Charlotte Dentistry and Dr. Thomas W. Armstrong are the first and only Charlotte area dentists to achieve top honors for Invisalign orthodontics. Having treated more 1600 patients with Invisalign, Dr. Armstrong is the most experienced Invisalign provider in North Carolina. Patients from all over the country seek his expertise, and dentists interested in offering Invisalign, consult with him to learn how to strengthen their skills.
It’s also important to remember that Invisalign is a breakthrough technology, but it still requires consistent work from the patient to be successful. The Invisalign clear plastic trays are designed to slide over your teeth and slowly begin to move your teeth. As you change the trays every few weeks, your teeth begin to be repositioned to close gaps, turn teeth and give you a beautiful smile.
Invisalign braces are almost invisible so they are easy to forget. Be consistent, always replace them immediately after eating and brushing. If you experience discomfort, you’ll notice the more you wear the trays the less your discomfort!
Remember to brush both your teeth and your trays to avoid plaque buildup. Keep the trays in place as much as possible to ensure the best, fastest results!
