Invisalign Benefits Designed with Your Comfort & Needs in Mind

Our dentists at South Point Family Dentistry use Invisalign clear aligners to give our dental patients from Belmont and Charlotte, NC, the smiles they love. This advanced dental technique offers the benefits of braces without the hassles

Nearly Invisible

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.

More Comfortable

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. 

Completely Removable 

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.

Wondering how you can achieve a beautiful smile? 

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.

Simple Steps to a Better Smile

Comfortable, discreet Invisalign trays make correcting your smile as easy as 1, 2, 3. 

Consultation

The first step is to schedule an appointment for a consultation so we can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. One of our dentists will explain how Invisalign works and examine your mouth to determine if Invisalign is the right treatment. 

Creating Custom Aligners

We will take scans of your teeth that will be used to create the custom aligner trays to be worn throughout your treatment plan. 

Pick Up Your Aligners

After your trays arrive, you'll return to our office to pick them up and try on the first set. Each tray in the series is to be worn for 20 to 22 hours each day for two to three weeks. 

Check-Ins

You will return periodically to ensure your treatment is going according to plan. Our location makes these infrequent appointments convenient for our patients from Belmont and Charlotte. 

Time to Smile

Once you've worn all the trays, a retainer may be created using a digital image of your newly straightened smile. This retainer can be worn at night to ensure your teeth don't drift back out of alignment.
