How clear aligners can realign the teeth without traditional braces

If you are looking for a way to straighten the teeth without dealing with the discomfort and inconvenience of metal braces, using clear aligners might be the best option. Dr. Philip Hahn of Family Dental Choice in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a cosmetic dentist who is excited to offer this alternative for teeth straightening. Instead of referring patients to a local orthodontist, patients can use the Invisalign aligners to achieve a beautiful smile and properly aligned bite.

How do clear aligners such as Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners work by gradually moving your teeth into their proper positions over several months while being created from an invisible plastic material that is custom-made to fit snugly in your mouth. They are more discreet than traditional metal braces since they can easily be removed when eating or brushing your teeth. In addition, these invisible braces do not require metal brackets or wires. This means no irritation to the gums or lips that is common with conventional methods. Also, treatment is often comparable in cost with traditional braces, making Invisalign treatment the “clear” choice for most of our patients!

How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?

Clear aligners are removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. They are easy to keep clean, and you only use the trays for two weeks before moving on to the next clear aligner in the series. By the time you reach the final aligner, you will have achieved your dream smile!

How do I find out if Invisalign aligners are right for me?

An Invisalign consultation visit will need to be scheduled at Family Dental Choice to first determine candidacy for treatment. An evaluation is performed, and patients are educated on how to use Invisalign to achieve a straighter smile. Call (704) 741-1307 to request an initial visit with Dr. Philip Hahn and speak to the team about treatment. The office is located at 16049 Johnston Road, Suite I and is open to new patients from in and around the community, including the local cities of Marvin, Pineville, and Weddington in North Carolina and Indian Land and Fort Mill in South Carolina.
