The Invisalign® system allows patients to achieve teeth straightening without the inconveniences typically associated with orthodontic treatment. Wood Creek Dental is pleased to offer Invisalign® clear braces at our Greenville and Landrum offices, which serve patients from throughout Upstate South Carolina.
The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually move teeth into their new positions. The aligners, which are customized to your needs and based on the treatment plan developed specifically for you, fit comfortably over your teeth so you can eat and speak as you normally would.
Approximately every two weeks throughout your treatment, you will receive a new aligner. You will also make periodic visits to our office to ensure that your treatment is progressing as expected.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® clear braces are an innovative treatment alternative, offering a number of benefits over traditional metal braces:
- Enhanced confidence: The Invisalign® system offers a discreet teeth straightening option. Most people won’t even notice that you are wearing the aligners, so you can continue to enjoy social activities as you normally would without feeling self-conscious about your appearance.
- Added convenience: Invisalign® aligners are removable, so it is easier to maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment. You can also opt to remove the aligners for special occasions.
- Increased comfort: Most patients find that the aligners are much more comfortable than the wires and brackets of traditional metal braces, which can cause mouth and gum irritation.
The convenience of the Invisalign® clear braces system has made this treatment an extremely popular option among both doctors and patients.
Candidates for Invisalign®
Invisalign® can effectively address many alignment concerns, including crowding, gaps, and bite problems. However, some concerns may be better addressed with traditional braces or with other treatments entirely, such as porcelain veneers. The doctors at Wood Creek Dental can help determine if Invisalign® clear braces are right for you or if another treatment may be better suited to meet your needs and goals.
