Invisalign® Knightdale

Set of clear aligners resting in an Invisalign® branded case on a blue background at Stansell Dentistry Associates in Knightdale, NCHave you been yearning for a more perfect smile, but the idea of traditional metal braces doesn't sound appealing? Then you might want to consider Invisalign, a new approach in orthodontics. This solution could be your answer to beautifully aligned teeth without the typical hassles of metal brackets and wires. Our Knightdale dentists proudly use Invisalign clear aligners to straighten our patient's teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Tailored to your exact needs, Invisalign is a custom-made series of clear aligners exclusively designed to align your teeth gradually.

Using 3D computer-imaging technology, your complete treatment plan is charted right from the beginning to the final desired position of your teeth. Each aligner will bring about slight adjustments, moving your teeth incrementally.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign clear aligners operate on the simple yet effective premise of pressure application. Your aligners will be designed to apply the right amount of pressure to specific spots in your mouth to move your teeth into their desired position.

Approximately every two weeks you will get a new set of aligners to continue moving your teeth bit by bit. The change in the aligner set is subtle, but the results, as you will witness, are anything but subtle.

Your Invisalign aligners are removable. You should only take them out for meals and teeth cleaning. For the treatment to be effective, you need to wear your aligners for about 20 to 22 hours a day.

To facilitate the process, attachments might be part of the treatment. These are tiny, tooth-colored dots adhered to your teeth and work in conjunction with the aligners to move your teeth more predictably.

How long does Invisalign take?

Typically for adults, the entire Invisalign journey can take approximately 12 to 18 months. However, please keep in mind this is an average. The specific timeline could be shorter or longer, based on your particular orthodontic needs.

Several factors can influence the length of treatment required with Invisalign. Some noteworthy ones include the complexity of your case, your age, and how diligent you are about wearing your aligners.

What does Invisalign not treat?

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is genuinely remarkable. These aligners are nearly invisible. While Invisalign offers many fantastic solutions for various dental issues, there might be some cases where its efficacy could be limited.

•  Molar Corrections: If you're expecting to make significant alterations to your back teeth or molars, Invisalign might not be the best option. These powerful aligners operate at their peak when treating your front teeth.

•  Rotating Canines: The canines are usually a tricky area to manage because of their rounded shape. When the treatment requires a considerable level of rotation, traditional braces often hold a stronger advantage.

•  Vertical Shifts: Invisalign is less efficient when it comes to shifting teeth vertically, a movement known as intrusion or extrusion. Braces using brackets and wires are often more successful in this area.
