When a patient wishes for a straighter, more attractive smile, Dr. Armstrong and Dr. Tant may recommend Invisalign® in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Invisalign is the leading brand of clear aligners, tight-fitting retainers that slip over the teeth. These custom-made retainers straighten your teeth over time. Our dentists will make several versions of your clear aligners and you will receive your new set every two weeks.
Invisalign has many advantages over traditional braces. Invisalign is made of comfortable, nearly invisible plastic. Most people will not realize that you are straightening your smile. Braces require visible brackets and wires that may irritate your mouth. Invisalign aligners are removable. This means that it is easy to brush and floss your teeth, unlike with braces. This means it is easier to maintain your oral health with Invisalign. Because of the brackets and wires, patients with braces have many food restrictions. With Invisalign, you can continue eating all of your favorite foods. Dental appointments are less frequent with Invisalign than with braces. Invisalign patients only need appointments every four to six weeks.
We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn if Invisalign is right for you and to schedule your next visit with our dentists.
