Crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth can affect your appearance, increase your risk of cavities, and lower your confidence.
Comfortable, discreet Invisalign® aligners from South Point Family Dentistry in Belmont, NC, let you avoid traditional braces.
Why do dental patients choose Invisalign over metal braces?
Invisalign Benefits Designed with Your Comfort & Needs in Mind
Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic. The trays are designed to fit snugly in your mouth so other people barely notice you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Many patients have commented that braces can irritate the insides of the cheeks. Invisalign aligners are smooth, so they won't irritate the soft tissues of your mouth.
Traditional orthodontic appliances are cemented to your teeth throughout the course of treatment, but Invisalign clear aligners can be removed when you eat, brush, and floss. While you straighten your smile, you can continue to brush and floss normally and enjoy your favorite foods.

How Does Invisalign Compare to Conventional Orthodontics?
How Does Invisalign Work?
Instead of traditional braces, our Belmont and Charlotte patients can undergo Invisalign orthodontic treatment, which relies on nearly invisible aligner trays. These clear aligners are the secret to transforming your smile. They are custom created from 3-D images the dentist takes of your mouth. Using these images, a series of custom-made plastic aligners will be created. When you wear the aligners, they will gently and gradually shift your teeth into the correct position.
About every two weeks you will move to the next set of aligners. Each patient has a different degree of misalignment, which affects how long the treatment lasts, but in most cases treatment will last from six months to two years.
An important part of the Invisalign method is your willingness to stick with the treatment plan. This includes wearing your aligner trays for the mandatory 20 to 22 hours each day. You can remove the aligners to eat, floss, and brush your teeth.
